“I want to explore ministry as a current student or recent graduate.”
(About 1-6 Months)
Our Intern track is for current students or graduates who want to pursue missions while still in school or early in their career, receive mentoring from veteran missionaries on the field, and meet tangible needs on the team.
College is a time in your life when there are more crossroads than there are straightaways, and that is why our student program strives to provide as much information, guidance, and experience as possible to those considering a career in missions. We want to help you experience new cultures, develop impactful relationships, and learn what it means to be a part of a real missionary team that is making an eternal difference.
The Intern track is also ideal for church planting interns, pastoral residents, and other short-term workers serving in North America.
Unlike short missions trips that only offer a glimpse into the life of a missionary, ABWE puts a strong emphasis on internships where you can come alongside experienced long-term missionaries and experience what full-time missions is really like. We offer several established internship options (listed below) where you can easily plug into dynamic ministries, but as we know that missions isn’t one-size-fits-all, we also offer customizable internships so that you can also experience a specific region or ministry that God has placed on your heart. Our internships last anywhere from one to six months, and in many cases can be applied toward academic credit.
Wherever you are right now, whatever your experience or education level, we provide the training and resources you need to succeed. We’d love to speak with you about how our beliefs and vision align with your passion and how we can work together to reach the world for Christ.
We'd love to get to know you and discuss how God is calling you.
