Immerse: Our mission internship programme

Use your training and experience from university, work or church to meet gospel needs alongside experienced cross-cultural workers. Be mentored to help you grow as a disciple and develop your skills for whatever direction God takes you in the future.

We offer a huge range of programmes so you can gain experience in whichever area of ministry you are called to. You can develop something you're already working on, or try something completely new.

You will learn from each other 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 cntinuing 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.
