Yes, we need skills. But, moreover, we need hearts transformed by Jesus, willing to make sacrifices with eyes wide open to gain a better understanding of God at work in South America, building his Kingdom. Internships with South America Mission are meant to provide a sense for SAM’s vision, mission and community of missionaries. They are also a key component of SAM’s disciple-making ministry; interns draw closer to the heart of Jesus as they make sacrifices to go to the nations.
Internships range in scope of length of time, cost and ministry engagement. Most internships last 1-5 months. We will work with you to provide a budget for your service. You can raise the needed funds through SAM and all donations are tax-deductible. Internships are ideal for college-age young adults, ages 18-24.
There will be many opportunities to use your gifts to bless others, but your witness that gives testimony to God’s redemptive love for the world is the greatest transformative agent. Your specific gifting, skills and education could bless our ministries and missionaries with a short-term internship which also provides you with hands-on experience in ministry.
Summer Teams are shorter internships (2 weeks-2 months) from June-August. Short-term summer teams come alongside missionaries in their ministry, supporting them and learning from them.
