Loveworks: PLNU Short-Term Missions
Every summer, PLNU LoveWorks short-term missions send teams of 8-12 students guided by two co-leaders. The leaders are an essential part of the program and are recruited from among PLNU alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the University.

The LoveWorks team is currently accepting applications for team leaders in the summer of 2023! LoveWorks team leaders are vital to the teams’ success and are asked to commit their time and energy to training throughout the spring before they lead their team in the summer.

If you have a heart for missions work and would consider partnering with our neighbor PLNU in this way, please click the button below for more information:
