Homeschool Tutor

World Team has been working among the Baka people for nearly 30 years. The Baka people live in remote villages near the rainforests in Eastern Cameroon. Currently, there are two church planting teams in different Baka villages. A variety of ministry focuses include construction support, agriculture, medical, fitness, youth, translation & literacy work. The teams are also supporting and developing leaders for the local Baka churches that have begun. Leaving the Baka with scripture in their own language is a huge priority as they seek to develop and release local leaders in these churches.

The Hanson family moved to Cameroon in September 2021. Their ministry focuses on translation and literacy work among the Baka people. To minister to the Baka people, they must first learn to communicate effectively in the Baka language. They are currently working full-time on language learning which is very hard to balance with three kids at home. A tutor allows them to focus on language learning and preparing for Bible Translation. Because of the village’s remote nature, it does not have all of the comforts of a more developed area. Wifi and cell service are limited.

Fitness Center Internship

This ministry uses many different avenues to accomplish the proclamation of God’s Word. We use chronological oral Bible storying as a training tool for raising up leaders in this oral society and focus on small groups of men, women, youth, and children. It is also a high value that we raise up leaders from among the Baka people to lead the churches that are being planted. The Baka are often passed over for more educated people, but the Baka should know that they are also highly loved and are able to be equipped through God’s strength to lead others to the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

You will serve on the field with seasoned church planters dedicated to raising up church leaders from the local population. Interns will partner in a ministry focused on leading classes of primarily non-English speaking athletes of various ages. It is expected that the intern is able to properly demonstrate athletic movements and assist others in achieving the proper movements as well. Many of the students that initially participated in this program are now regular attendees of the local youth ministry. The goal is to provide a gospel presence as we interact with the participants. God’s Word is shared with athletes and spectators at every class and during competitions.

Cambodia Internship

World Team has been serving in Cambodia for 25 years. In Battambang, 6 WT missionaries and 37 Cambodian staff are facilitating and leading the many different ministries. The ministry Roots of Grace was founded in 2015 with the vision to: “Introduce Jesus into broken situations with the hope of changing generations.” There are now 25 unique sites/ministries taking different approaches with that goal in mind. Ministries include caring for and supporting the education of pre-school, elementary, and high school students, empowering women through literacy, vocational training, adult Bible studies, and dorm ministry. In all of these areas, the goal is to love our community and introduce them to Jesus.

All interns will be immersed in Cambodian culture and get to see what full-time ministry in this context looks like. You will also have some basic language learning while in the country. There are many opportunities to be involved in ministry. Regular activities while on the trip will include participation in daily devotions, daily interactions with our Khmer staff, and gathering with the church.

Europe Area Internship

Each World Team field has its own approach to ministry, but the desires are the same: introduce people to Jesus, disciple them, and release them into ministry. Visiting multiple mission fields will give you a taste of how in different countries a variety of strategies are used, but the same Gospel is proclaimed. France is shaped by humanism, Italy by the Catholic Church, and Moldova by its communist past. Rather than seeing Europe as all the same, you’ll see how different histories and cultures lead to different ways of doing ministry. The Gospel first came to this continent almost two thousand years ago, but Europe is in need of people and churches that can once again make known the Good News of God’s love offered freely in Jesus.

Interns will begin in the 15th District of Paris. There you will learn about the spiritual climate of France, visit different church plants, and meet French pastors and church planters. Interns will then travel to Milan, Italy and continue to assist with different ministries. You will also have the chance to connect with a local church plant and spend time with Italian believers. Finally, in Moldova interns will plan for & teach in an English camp which will help build relationships with local families and give opportunities to show the love of Christ.
