Short Description

Taste & See is an opportunity for a local Canadian church family to take its first steps to Global Missions through the Alliance. Teams will learn from experienced International Workers (IWs) on what it means to live out the Gospel in a cross-cultural context, and it is an opportunity for your youth, young adults, and members to see God’s work around the world.

Global Semester is an intentional 8-week cohort program for those who are considering God’s calling to serve in cross-cultural ministry locally or globally. This experience is an opportunity to “test out” a lifestyle of prayer, discipleship and ministry while being guided and accompanied by a mentoring couple. This 8-week program is cohort-based and aims to develop emerging leaders to embody the Alliance values of being Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered and mission-focused in a cross-cultural setting.

What is Global Semester?


Global Semester is an intentional 8-week internship for those who are considering God’s calling to serve in cross-cultural ministry locally or globally.  This experience is an opportunity to “test out” a lifestyle of prayer, discipleship and ministry while being guided and accompanied by a mentoring couple. This 8-week program is cohort-based and aims to develop emerging leaders to embody the Alliance values of being Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered and mission-focused in a cross-cultural setting.

The Global Semester program launches two times a year and will visit a different field each time.

  • pre-ministry training
  • intentional learning content
  • post-experience reflection and debrief, and
  • 1 week of living with a host family.

Each cohort will also experience communal living, peer discipleship and one-on-one coaching.

  • learning language and culture
  • practicing intercessory prayer
  • learning about worldview and contextualization, and
  • reflecting on theology, ministry and mission.

Jose and Joscelyn

Global Semester Coordinators


Joscelyn grew up in a Christian home and sensed a call to missions at a young age. As an Ambrose University alumnus, she studied Intercultural Studies and completed an ONSITE internship in Kenya. She also attained a TESOL diploma and led several short-term teams.

Since following Jesus in high school and graduating from UBC, Jose’s sense of calling was formed through a series of onramps, such as the Perspectives Course, several internships overseas, and a master’s degree at Regent College.

After serving in Guinea and Niger, they returned to Canada in 2017 with a continued sense of God’s call to cross-cultural ministry overseas and a passion to mentor the next generation of leaders. They are connecting with churches to communicate the vision of Global Semester and journeying with them in identifying potential candidates. J&J coordinate with team leaders and regional developers to plan for the logistics and curriculum for each of the Global Semester cohorts as well as overseeing apprentices, interns, and short-term teams in the Sand Region.
