One-Year Internship: NYC Immerse

Spend a year in New York City working alongside experienced church planters to gain practical ministry experience, mentoring and an understanding of a Biblical worldview of mission. Gain a firm theological foundation and put it into practice by:

  • evangelising and discipling cross-culturally
  • launching house churches through Discovery Bible Studies
  • learning the DNA of reproducible church planting
  • seeing the power of the gospel among the unreached

Wherever you’re coming from or going to, NYC Immerse will prepare you for ministry in your neighbourhood or a city across the world.

Contact us for more information.

F.A.Q.

What is NYC Immerse?

Immerse is one year of training believers in church planting and cross-cultural ministry in New York City. The idea behind Immerse is to give you the practical tools to share your faith, disciple people from diverse cultures, and plant churches – all in English while living in America. What you learn here at Immerse can be applied to a future ministry wherever the Lord leads you.

What will I be doing during the year?

You will spend 10 months in New York City working amongst an unreached people group (UPG) community, and working with international students, to engage them with the gospel with the purpose of seeing a reproducible church planting movement. This includes activities such as leading Discovery Bible Studies, meeting with unbelievers, being involved in an existing house church, developing as a team, and participating in seminars.

What is the focus of the training?

The focus of the training is organic, reproducible church planting. Each team will work to begin house churches during their time in NYC. This is a cross cultural ministry church planting training program so church planting will happen with either internationals from various people groups or with Muslim immigrants living in the city. There will be a high focus on evangelism and discipleship.

The three main elements are:

  • Theological: Get grounded in your understanding of Scripture, Redemptive History and Mission
  • Practical: Learn the skills needed for reproducible church planting
  • Character: Be transformed as you reflect on the Gospel for every area of life and ministry

Who is this training for?

This training is for anyone who seeks to reach the lost and learn how to start churches (Biblical communities of believers) in any city, town or village.

This training is highly recommended for anyone who wants to do cross-cultural church planting. Many go overseas to do church planting without having an understanding or experience of church planting prior to going. This training will give you the experience and a philosophy of church planting prior to arriving on the field.

When does it start and end?

We recommend that Immerse participants move to New York City by July 15, but the official trainings begin August 1 and end May 31.

How much does it cost?

Expected costs of the program are £1500-1800 per month. This includes housing, meals, local transportation, health insurance, and all ministry expenses for the months spent in New York and abroad. What’s not included is: your transport to New York City, transportation to orientation and debriefs in Florida that bookend your summer trip, personal spending money and souvenirs.

How do I apply?

Start the application process by filling out a Preliminary Information Form.
There will be a phone interview, an application and references to complete the application process.

Can I get academic credit from NYC Immerse?

NYC Immerse will provide courses in hermeneutics, Old Testament, New Testament and Systematic Theology. These courses are not accredited by a college or university degree program, but they count toward Pioneers’ Bible requirements for long term appointments.

Is there an age requirement?

The minimum age for this program is 21 years.
