WorldWide Witness helps to prepare students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world by connecting them with experienced mentors and opportunities for service in global contexts. As an intern you will spend the summer in a cross-cultural setting using your unique gifts in significant ways.
WorldWide Witness summer internships began in 2002 and since then has sent nearly 1000 students to over 40 locations around the world. WWW’s emphasis on pre-summer training, an 8-10 week timeframe, mentorship from experienced host supervisors, and its follow-up with each student after the summer are all reasons this program is so highly regarded by its participants and partners. To participate in a WWW internship, students are required to take the spring class, BMIS 391 Service in Global Contexts, which prepares them to be a welcomed asset by their host site for their two month experience. The class focuses on building a healthy perspective missionally, culturally, spiritually, and and mentally before students embark on teams of 2-4 for their summer of service.
Types of WorldWide Witness internships vary from location to type of ministry undertaken but all have the same goal: to deepen students’ cross-cultural understanding and their heart for the completion of the Great Commission. So whether you’re an undergraduate or graduate student,, be sure to seek out our staff and hear the opportunities your skills and passions could give you this coming summer!
