Overseas Internships

For six to eight weeks, we send interns to established missionary teams to explore their call to the nations. While abroad, they learn more about the local language, culture, and spiritual condition as they get a glimpse into daily life overseas. In doing so, our overseas interns learn how to pray boldly, abide in Jesus, and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit as they assist our team in starting church planting movements among the unreached.
