Location: Moldova, rural villages and towns
Dates: May 28 - July 13, 2015
You'll play an important part in igniting local ministry through service, outreach, and building relationships. This 6-week internship is designed to give you hands-on experience in cross-cultural evangelism and discipleship while working side-by-side with Moldovan church planters. A missionary mentor will help you process what you're learning along the way.
Tucked between Romania and Ukraine, Moldova is little known to much of the world. Moldova has a turbulent history, having been repeatedly fought over and dominated by its neighbors. The fall of the Soviet empire in 1991 brought independence, but power struggles and economic trouble continue to plague the country. Ranked as the poorest European country, life is hard for most Moldovans. Communism and Orthodox Christianity offer little relief for people’s daily needs or hope for their future. And yet, Moldovans are spiritually open and we have opportunities to help grow the church by investing in its leaders.
What You'll Do:
- Learn about Moldovan history and culture with a visit to the capital city of Chisinau. Meet the team and learn about the long-term ministry vision you'll support.
- Help Moldovan church planters reach rural communities through evangelism (VBS, English language learning, sports programs) and discipleship.
- Use your gifts in the areas of English language, singles ministry, or youth Bible programs as part of a camp run for national church planters.
- Spend time with people.
- Deepen your relationship with God as your team studies what it means to live out the gospel daily.
