Immerse

Many of our teams are able to offer internship-style programmes which give exposure to different ministries, language and culture learning, and an opportunity to use your skills. Some of our teams have developed some focused mentoring programmes that offer an extra level of development.

You will learn from team members as well as from experienced trainers, as together we apply the Bible to areas of personal, practical, cultural and spiritual concern, equipping you not just for the placement ahead but for your continuing Christian development.

Possible areas of ministry include children’s work, youth work, administration, TESOL, sports coaching, student ministry, teaching, IT, accountancy, languages, personnel management, art, media, public health, social work, theology… and many more! Previous training or experience in a particular ministry is not always required.

There are other internship-style opportunities in other SIM teams that are less structured, and we can discuss these with you in the placement exploration stages.

Please get in touch to start exploring how God might want you to learn, serve and grow through this opportunity.
