INTERNSHIPS

While living in missions-minded communities, SEND interns explore:
  • Cross-cultural ministry: Serve on a team engaging in evangelism and disciple-making among the unreached.
  • Personal discipleship: Grow in Christ-likeness and obedience to God’s Word.
  • Clarity in calling: Understand SEND’s vision for developing meaningful relationships within a community, and explore your role in fulfilling that vision.
  • Ministry skills: Gain confidence as you help make disciples.
  • Life skills: Discover how to thrive while living in a cross-cultural context.
  • Academic growth: Fulfill university internship requirements for internships (in most cases).
