The Studio training team has more than 250 years of collective field experience. Many of our trainers have spent decades living in the Muslim world and have helped established multiple fellowships of believers from Muslim backgrounds. This wealth of experience gives interns unparalleled access to veteran field workers who know the realities, struggles, and joys of field life.


Interns live together and minister in community. You will come to understand your own gifting and abilities better as you serve on a fully engaged ministry team. You’ll discover common values, and develop shared strategies and goals while growing as a community that loves and serves one another. You will experience the joys and challenges of bonding as a team and working side-by-side to serve and impact the Muslim community.


While at Studio, each intern is individually mentored by an experienced field veteran.  Interns typically meet with their mentor weekly to discuss class training, life situations, field plans, and just to have fun while taking walks in the hills or on the beach.  Our goal is to help you grow as a unique person preparing to minister in a unique situation.  Mentoring is a terrific way to help you grow and think through your own plans and needs. 


Kids are part of the community at Studio! Our robust Third Culture Kids (TCK) training programing helps prepare your children to thrive through the cultural adjustments they will soon encounter. Age appropriate readings, videos and other training materials are used to help the children understand the same concepts that their parents are learning, so families can discuss topics together. Nursery care is also provided.


Three months of training can save you years of frustration overseas. At Studio you’ll receive comprehensive training in nearly all areas considered essential by major mission organizations and experienced workers. It’s fast and focused. Studio acts as a springboard to field life and ministry. After three months you’ll be equipped with skills and perspectives that lead to fruitfulness and resiliency – you will be ready to hit the ground running.


Studio’s training is both robust and practical. In most cases it can be applied the same day it was taught. Spiritual development lessons help us better connect with God. Outreach training helps us to share more effectively with Muslims. Language learning lessons are immediately applied to help you both learn a new language and teach English to immigrants. Learning is taken beyond the confines of a classroom to make a real impact here in America.
