Overview: Shine the true love of Christ to orphans and the spiritually oppressed in a rural farming community in Northeastern Brazil. Here, you will serve with us and learn how to disciple children and teens who were victims of trafficking as well as support the local church plants leadership in community outreach. Help those we serve understand that the Lord does indeed have great plans for them as He did for the nation of Israel as mentioned in Jeremiah 29:11. Believers can have abundant life in Christ no matter what they have been through.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Q & A with ACTION missionaries:

1. What are you looking for in potential interns and what are some roles that interns could take on while serving with your team?

First of all, before coming we would ask that interns have served God wholeheartedly, and they have pointed others to a relationship with Christ as they’ve been given opportunities. We also would like interns who have come to an understanding of their limits as a person, trusting and knowing Christ on a more intimate level. In terms of roles, we are looking for Children’s Ministry Workers, Administrative Assistants and English Teachers but are open to people with other skillsets as well!

2. What are some ministry tasks that you want the intern to accomplish while serving with you?

Interns can serve with our children and youth in a variety of programs we have each week. If there is a specific project that the intern has been assigned, then the goal for the intern will be to have a Brazilian member of our team or church trained to carry on the project by the time the intern leaves (i.e. mentoring that person while there). For example, this could look like starting a consistent kids’ ministry in the church plant here and leading a local believer to take over when the intern has finished serving with us. Another example would be if an intern started a community garden at the church plant and then taught someone else how to manage, care for, and use the garden as an outreach ministry.

3. Specific skills an intern may expect to develop by the time the internship is completed:

  • The skill of building intentional relationships, especially cross-culturally
  • How to assist in a church plant to help it thrive
  • Best practices in orphan care
  • How to minister wisely and effectively in a poor community through outreach projects
  • Learning to discern cultural preferences versus biblical principles
  • The art of mentoring others
  • How to have a deeper walk with the Lord
  • Learning to work well on a multicultural team and how to engage in healthy cross-cultural conflict resolution

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

ACTION seeks to please Christ, the Builder and Head of the Church, by conducting our ministries closely with local churches for the advancement and building up of the Body of Christ with the view that all believers will grow in maturity becoming more and more like Christ with the hope that some become pastors, evangelists, teachers, and others cross-cultural missionaries (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 4:4-16).

Training debriefing
If the participant is going for less than six months, they will receive mentoring and coaching by someone on our Mobilization Team and also work through pre-field reading material and assignments. If the applicant is going longer than six months, they will participate in an in-person orientation and a separate in-person cross-cultural training course before deploying to the field. They will also have to be able to communicate in Portuguese, so Portuguese or Spanish classes are recommended. All participants will have a debrief interview with the person from our Mobilization Department who mentored and coached them before and during their time of service. They will also be asked to fill out a post-trip evaluation form to help them process their experience and next steps and provide our home office and field missionaries helpful feedback for sending future short-term workers.
