West Africa Internship

Image titleOur West Africa internship offers a holistic view of the ministry of Bible translation and is perfect for someone wanting to explore and learn about multiple roles within the ministry. The team usually travels to 2-3 villages or towns throughout the summer to actively engage in activities such as Bible translation, Scripture engagement, and language learning (depending on current field personnel and intern interest.) Each site will offer interns the opportunity to learn about and interact with different people groups, languages and religions, as well as learn how to build relationships and minister within these varying contexts.
