If you are a college student seeking a Summer internship, serving as a mission intern in a global city may be the perfect opportunity for you. Summer internships with Global City Mission include some key experiences that may be impactful in your own growth & development as a follower of Christ.
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the world population became more than 50% urban dwellers, and it is projected that by the middle of the twenty-first century, the world’s populations may become as much as 65% urban. Simultaneously, we are living during the greatest global migration in world history, and the majority of the world’s migrants are relocating to or near cities. At the same time, as society experiences major cultural shifts, there are numerous challenges & opportunities for making an impact amidst the global diversity of cities in North America.
Summer internships with Global City Mission involve cross-cultural experience. You will be expected to engage either a migrant or multiethnic community in the city where you will be serving. In our increasingly diverse society, gaining cross-cultural experience is an important part of your learning both as a disciple of Jesus and in your professional life.
Summer internships with Global City Mission encourage you to take initiative. What does it look like when disciple-maker, missionary, church planter, or similar worker arrives in a new city with plans to reach new people? Global City Mission will mentor & guide you through your Summer experience as you learn to manage your own schedule, take initiative, and engage new communities for the first time. It is an invaluable opportunity to learn, grow, challenge yourself, and discover how God can work in you in new & maybe even surprising ways.
Summer internships with Global City Mission help to equip you in relational evangelism, starting discovery groups, and similar disciple-making practices. Whether or not you see missions in your long-term future, spending your Summer reaching out in a globally diverse metropolitan area with Global City Mission will help you grow as a disciple-maker. We look forward to serving as your guide as you learn to serve the nations next door.
Each year Global City Mission selects two different cities from among our mission sites where a full-time missionary is serving. This provides a variety of opportunities to gain valuable ministry experience in a different context each year.
