Country: Asia, Muslim Ministries, Southeast Asia
Term: Mid-Term (1 - 3 years), Short-Term (2 weeks - 1 year)

Demonstrating a beautiful blend of cultures, Jesus followers from four different nations and 9 heart languages have joined together to be the presence of Jesus and bring the message of Jesus to over 1.2 million Muslims in Southeast Asia. Through a multi-faceted and holistic ministry, SEND International’s Team Hope (Engage Salam Internship) is using storytelling of God’s Word and Discovery Bible Studies to develop healthy families of faith that initiate disciple-making movements. The Spirit is moving through His Word, and Muslims are turning to faith in Jesus.

Since 1998, Team Hope has trained hundreds of short-term workers and interns from Asia, Europe, North and South America in Discovery Bible study methods, the basics of Islam, and God’s heart for Muslims. These interns have been coached and mentored to use their skills and gifts to build relationships, and to practically demonstrate and courageously proclaim the love of Jesus in a Muslim context.

The fields are ripe for harvest. By faith we are asking the Lord of the Harvest to send more workers to the Muslim world. As this prayer is answered, we desire them to go equipped.

Whether you are feeling called to long-term overseas service or to Muslim friends and refugees in your own backyard, this training school will equip you with a Biblical foundation and effective tools for serving Jesus in any Muslim context.
