Ethnomusicology Internship

Deadline Passed – 2024 Details Coming Soon

World Team has been church planting in Cameroon for decades, and teams are working in five different villages and regions, meeting physical, educational, and spiritual needs. In this ethnomusicology internship, you will partner with our long-term church planting teams and help churches in Cameroon develop culturally relevant worship.

Interns will get to interact with two of the cultures we work amongst, the Baka and the Esimbi. While observing, learning, and being immersed in these cultures, interns will use their gifts and skills to help churches develop authentic worship expression in their own language. This will allow our full-time teammates to continue to disciple and encourage praise and honor to God within these church plants.

World Team Cameroon internships give you maximum hands-on experience in cross-cultural ministry while furthering long-term church-planting efforts. And you’ll experience life-on-life discipleship by a mentor.

Spain Internship

World Team has nearly 40 years of church planting experience in Spain. World Team Spain is committed to maintaining a national vision of church planting and creating an environment that stimulates innovation. Opportunities to reach out to Spaniards are numerous, and our desire is to empower each person to maximize the use of his or her Godgiven gifts to serve. We currently have seven teams using their unique gifts and skills to share the gospel with those around them. Recent years of economic upheaval and increasing secularism have served to dull the Spanish people to their tremendous need for the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s not easy work in Spain, but the need is tremendous!

A fresh wind of faith is needed in Western Europe today. Come to Spain and explore the challenges of sharing the good news of the gospel in a place where secularism reigns and the Bible is seen as a thing of the past. Engage a people who no longer believe that God exists while you learn from missionaries experienced in communicating God’s Word in a post-Christian climate. You’ll get practical experience in teamwork and have the opportunity to see a variety of ways that church planting takes place. Take advantage of your time in Spain and experience the culture, enjoy new foods, and see new places.

DatesMay 24, 2024 — July 6, 2024

Arabic is the fifth most spoken language globally.

Our focus is on serving and sharing the gospel with Arabic-speaking Muslims in South Florida, as well as discipleship and church planting. We desire to meet the spiritual hunger found in Arab peoples across both geographical and religious boundaries.
