all-year round internships

"By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples." - John 15:8

As an intern/staff we hope to educate you about international missions and ministry, expose you to what God is doing in Ecuador, and teach you a little more of how you can be involved in God's Global Kingdom.

We believe that an internship allows you to serve an established ministry and "try ministry on" to see about the possibility of pursuing it in the future. We want to not only see God work through you, but in you as well. If you come and intern with us, you will be stretched, changed, and have a different view of the world. Our desire is that during this process, God will continue to conform you to the image of His Son for His glory and for the joy of all peoples in Jesus Christ.
