Internships

Internships typically run for two months (May and June). The goal is to expose interns to missionary life on a Live Dead team, to develop basic skills for cross-cultural ministry, and to provide space for interns to explore a call to longer-term service. We focus on group and individual pursuit of God, team life, study of local religions, language and culture, and the proclamation of the gospel among the unreached. Participants get a closer look at the life and operation of a church planting team, and see the need for God to call more laborers to the harvest fields.

2018 Opportunities:
May 17-June 29 (Marmara; $2,250 + airfare)
June 4-July 14 (Black Sea; $2,350 + airfare)

Study Aboard

Live Dead Silk Roads partners with an expanding number of universities to provide study abroad opportunities for those looking to add experiential, cross-cultural training to their existing degree program. In addition to one’s online classes, students will study local language, participate in team life and trainings, and ministry opportunities. Tuition is paid to your institution, and room and board costs cover your expenses on location. Your only additional cost is airfare.

Ideally, study aboard occurs during the spring semester, extending a month or two into the summer break, which allows students to participate in increased ministry opportunities after their school work is completed.

Going for two years gives further depth in ministry experience and learning to the one-year option. After completing a first year, you will have the opportunity to continue growing in linguistic and cultural fluency while sharpening your thinking about mission and Scripture and sharing Jesus with the unreached daily. During the two years, you will experience the value and practice of abiding as an individual and with your team; linguistic and cultural fluency; the practice of evangelism and gospel proclamation among the people around you; the study of missiology, local religions, Scripture, and church planting; an intentional process of discipleship; and the benefit of learning to live in community and to work as a team.
