Use your English skills to help a church planting team in the Balkans.

This country is one of the world’s newest, declaring independence in February 2008. The religion is predominantly secular Islam, with small Catholic and Orthodox communities. Protestants represent fewer than 1% of the population.

What is the vision for the one-year internship?

  • Join the existing church planting team to engage the local community in relationships through teaching English, baking, mountain biking and other gifts, skills or interests you bring to the table.
  • Gain practical church planting training with an experienced church planting team.
  • Learn language and culture while serving the community.
  • Be mentored by a more mature member of the field team.

What are the basic qualifications to apply?

  • You must be at least 18 years old and available to spend at least six months on the field.
  • Commitment to the spread of the gospel among the unreached.
  • Teaching experience is required, but experience teaching English is not necessary.
  • Member in good standing of a local church with a history of active involvement, service, good character, and teachability.
  • Humble, teachable spirit and commitment to grow in God’s grace.
  • A love for the gospel and commitment to being continually impacted by its power.

Who will the intern be serving alongside?

The field team is made up of two families: one with two small children, and one with older children. You will be serving as a full-fledged member of this team. The team have a strong concept of family and team, working closely together rather than each person focusing on his/her own ministry. They use the concept of a basketball team rather than a track team. They emphasise language and cultural proficiency in order to reach people in their heart language.

What ministry activities will the intern be involved with?

The team are in the first couple of years of a new church plant in a town of about 30,000 people. As of yet, there are no local believers, but the team have been received warmly and have had many opportunities to share the gospel. The team have about 50 youth and 10 adults involved in English, computer and guitar classes. They are also serving about 20 local doctors and nurses through practical skills training. They also organise Bible studies and host summer camps. And of course, they share the gospel within personal relationships.

In terms of English teaching, the team have over 40 students on the waiting list to join their courses. They use modern teaching techniques, including games, media projectors and iPads, to enhance their classes.

If you have some experience teaching English and have at least six months available, let’s talk and explore the possibilities!

We are looking for qualified university students or young adults who are willing to invest one year of their lives to engage one of the world’s largest unreached peoples with the gospel of Christ.

What is the vision of the one-year internship?

The intern will support long term church planting efforts by:

  • Sharing the gospel and studying the Bible with English-speaking uni students from among unreached people groups.
  • Serving the families of long-term workers.
  • Becoming equipped for possible long term service.
  • Praying diligently for the work of the gospel.
  • Growing deeper in Christ individually and as a community.

What are the basic qualifications to apply for the internship?

  • University students or young adults: Preferably having completed at least one year of university. Young married adults without children are welcome to apply!
  • Commitment to the spread of the gospel among the unreached.
  • Able to serve for at least one full academic year (August-July)
  • Member in good standing of a local church with a history of active involvement, service, good character, and teachability.
  • Humble, teachable spirit and commitment to grow in God’s grace.
  • A love for the gospel and commitment to being continually impacted by its power.
  • Helpful character traits and skills include: experience in Biblical community building, willingness to confess sin to others, thirst for prayer, willingness to try new things, and some experience in personal evangelism and small group Bible studies.

Where will the intern serve?

The intern will study and serve at a large university in a large city in Asia.

Who will the intern be serving under?

  • Pioneers International (PI) church planting team will host the intern.
  • The PI team has been serving among locals in the city for more than seven years.

What will an intern’s typical week involve?

  • Language Study: Every intern will be enrolled in a local university as a full-time language student. This study will involve class hours as well as study and homework hours.
  • Evangelism and Relationships: Team members will invest substantial amounts of time in meeting local students, developing relationships, serving, and initiating Bible studies with them.
  • Fellowship and Prayer: Team members will be committed to the spiritual care and development of each other. This will mean the team will cultivate strong, biblical community as a team. The team will also pray regularly for the advancement of the gospel.
  • Local Church Involvement: Team members will attend and serve at a local church in the city—an English speaking, international church that is legal for all foreign passport holders to attend.

This is considered a full-time ministry position ranging from 40-60 hours per week.

What ministry activities will the intern be involved with?

  • Mentored: Interns will be trained by long-term workers for ministry. All ministry activities will be done under the oversight of the long-term team.
  • Meeting New People: Team members will eat most of their meals in the student cafeteria where they will be surrounded by students. It is easy to make friends here! New friends can be met in many other ways as well!
  • Developing Friendships: Just like all uni students, these students love to hang out and have fun. Team members will spend time playing basketball, practicing language, going to the park, having dinner together and just hanging out.
  • Sharing the Good News: In the process of meeting new people and developing relationships, the good news can be shared early and often. This allows team members to discern who God is drawing them to focus attention on.
  • Bible Studies: The goal of all the relationships is to begin to study the Bible with other students. This is fundamental in helping them understand the glory of Christ in the gospel. This is a work of God but there is clear reason to believe interns will have many opportunities for evangelistic Bible studies.

How will the intern be led?

  • Student Leaders: A leader will be selected from among the one-year interns to handle basic leadership and administrative responsibilities.
  • Long Term Team: The long term team will provide spiritual encouragement, accountability, ministry structure and oversight. Ultimately, the long-term team leader will be responsible for the intern.

How much support is needed?

Support largely depends on the number of interns in any given year, but generally, interns must raise £17,000 for the year (approximately £1,600/pcm).

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.
