What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

The intern will be mentored by an experienced worker and serve as part of a small team which is seeking to establish indigenous, culturally relevant churches in an area where Islam is the predominant religion. The intern will begin to learn Turkish, be immersed in the culture, and be exposed to a variety of ministries in Turkey. There will also be opportunities to explore some historical and biblical sites in this ancient land.

Requirements: 
*Must be a US Citizen or US Permanent Resident.

A completed (or almost completed) college or seminary education. Skills and experience in evangelism and small groups are beneficial. A humble spirit, learning attitude towards culture, and willingness to work with others are essential. A servants attitude and a desire to learn about people where Islam is the predominant religion while seeking Gods direction for the future.

Responsibilities:
The intern will spend time engaged in language and culture learning and within this context the intern will engage in evangelism through personal contacts, web based ministries and other referrals. The church planting goal is personal encounters where individuals come to faith in Christ, are discipled and are folded into a new local church. The intern will use the internship experience to seek Gods leading for long-term overseas work among people where Islam is the predominant religion in Turkey.

Language Used: English and Turkish

Mission Trip Offered By WorldVenture

Billions of people don’t know Jesus. We’re not okay with that.

More than words, they are a reminder on the wall of our main office of why we do what we do. Since 1943, God has used thousands of WorldVenture workers and partners to impact millions with the good news.
We plant churches, build clinics, educate children, train leaders, provide disaster relief, combat injustice, foster the arts, and serve the poor with economic development…in Jesus name and to make disciples.
We recruit, train, and send disciples of Jesus throughout the world who sense Gods call to give their lives to share the gospel with people who have yet to hear it. And we partner with multitudes of Christ-following disciples in engaging the world for gospel impact.
Join us!
