We have awesome Summer Missionary Internships for missions-minded college students and graduates. These low-cost internships provide a great cross-cultural missions experience right here in the United States while getting exposure to unreached people groups from all over the world. You will be able to get your feet wet in missions by ministering to the Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Chinese, and Latinos that are coming to our country as refugees, immigrants, and international students. Summer interns work alongside full-time missionaries gaining experience building relationships and sharing the love of Christ with those who have never heard. God is bringing the nations to us and so we must be strategic in developing friendships and reaching out to them. You don’t have to cross the ocean to change the world!
Our Summer Missions Internships focus on our high school, college, adult, and family mission trip participants who come to minister on our short term missions trips. GFM’s internships provide the perfect opportunity to challenge North Americans to more involvement in world missions while also interacting with people from many different cultures, religions, and countries. Our missionary interns help us perform skits about missions, lead prayer walks, translate into other languages, run summer camps, lead worship, disciple others, teach ESL, and get people excited about what God is doing among the nations!
But, while performing all the leadership and mentorship tasks with the STM teams, we also train our summer interns to take an active role in making disciples among the unreached. Because you are living beside the diaspora peoples, you get to practice Church planting principles like prayer, removing stones and sowing seeds of the Gospel. Our goal is that you will make a disciple of someone who had never heard of Jesus!
For 2014, we are only hosting Summer Missionary Internships in Atlanta and Houston, but hope to soon offer options in South Asia and Thailand as well, so check back regularly for updates. All of our current internship opportunities can be found on the right side of this page. Some students in the past have even been able to get college credit for cultural classes, youth ministry, linguistics, and community service (consult your school adviser). As God provides more laborers in the future, we hope to add new GFM locations.
