History

Founding

In 2006, InterMission began with the intense desire of its organizers to serve missionary families.  It has grown as the Lord has opened doors of opportunity. 

For the rest of the story, see History of InterMission.

TCKs and their parents have served in many nations.

Global Reunion

Our camp for Third Culture Kids has been held on the campus of Oklahoma Christian since 2006.  The numbers grow each year. Starting in 2007, InterMission has included a camp for the parents of the kids enrolled.  In 2012, we began a program for the younger siblings of the enrolled teens. Click on the year below to see photos of the camp.
