Internship

WHAT IS THE INTERNSHIP?

This internship is a training environment in the context of regular, day-to-day ministerial life that equips men aspiring to be leaders, missionaries, pastors or godly men.

Immersion is the focus. The internship exists to saturate potential, future missionaries into a foreign context that will force them to think carefully about their gifting and the nature of  missions.

The course of study focuses on missions and how it relates to the local church. Reading, writing papers, discussing papers, and providing opportunities for service represent one of the primary means by which this is accomplished. In addition to the reading and writing assignments mentioned above, there is a strong observational and involvement component.
