- Do you want to become better established in the word of God?
- Do you want to gain practical ministry experience and be developed on how to use your gifts and talents to serve God both here in New Zealand and into your future?
- Do you want personal mentoring and encouragement as you grow in your walk with God?
- Do you want to 'practise overseas mission' by training cross-culturally as you work with international students?
If you said yes to any of these questions, then the ISMNZ Ministry Internship can help you become established in your faith and encouraged as you minister. Our Ministry Internships are designed to equip and prepare people in their journey towards becoming life-long followers of Jesus Christ.
Many past ISMNZ interns are actively serving in their home or adopted countries, especially in Asia. As our graduates settle into the next stage of life and begin careers and families, many have maintained a passionate engagement in ministry. Being equipped for following Christ into the future has given them confidence to discover the right place to serve God wherever they go. Some have pioneered disciple-making ministries, while others have been of great value within a church or Christian organisations in their communities.
The internship also offers great opportunities for those interested in entering the mission field but desiring some practical training and development before making the final step. During the internship a student can minister within a community of migrants/students such as Japanese, Chinese, Malaysian, etc. This cross-cultural opportunity is invaluable in preparing someone for the mission field.
