Engage Diaspora — EQUIP NYC

SEND partners with International Project to offer EQUIP, a 10-month missionary training program in New York City.

The church-planting skills you can learn through the EQUIP internship will prepare you to engage the unreached wherever God leads.

EQUIP interns:

  • Serve in New York City, which is home to more than 50 unreached people groups.
  • Immediately put what they’re learning into practice. EQUIP missionary training takes a “just-in-time” approach. As soon as you are trained in a church-planting principle, you will have ample opportunity to put it into practice.
  • Work with a team to develop a ministry plan to reach an unreached people group in New York City and spend 10 months putting it into practice.
  • Facilitate at least one Discovery Bible Study with influential international students on prestigious New York City university campuses.
  • Learn to “live out loud” by sharing the gospel numerous times throughout the year.

Nowhere else in America can prepare you for church planting among unreached people groups like New York City. Feeling like a minority, not having a car, using public transportation, reduced personal space, fatigue, and enduring the entire spectrum of weather are all elements of overseas ministry that you can begin to get used to in New York City before you leave for the field.
