Thoughts From
Past Interns

Jimmy C.

     I can best describe my internship in one word: growth. First off, Grenada is nothing like the United States so it was a time for me to engage, learn and serve in a different culture. But ultimately my time in Grenada was a time of growth with the Lord. It was a time the Holy Spirit used for me to begin to understand His wonderful goodness and amazing love and power.

     I can't begin to explain just how awesome this internship was, and how important it was for me to answer this call to go. This internship was more than just "an experience"... it was a surrender to God. Through this internship I began the long journey of what it actually means to serve and be used by the Holy Spirit. A letting go of things that didn't belong in the void in my heart, and replacing them with Jesus Christ.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I guaranteed to be accepted?

No. Acceptance into the program is at the discretion of our leadership. The purpose of the interview process is to assess whether we feel there's a fit and match. That said, acceptance is not based on "mad awesome skills" or a supposed "ton of experience" but rather an open heart and willing spirit-- and of course availability.

 

How do I know if I'm a 'fit and match'?

Ask Yourself: Do I want to live with missionaries to learn what life on the mission field is really like? Do I have a teachable humble spirit and want to have an experience that will prepare me for future success in ministry? If so, then you probably make a fit and match. 

 

* WARNING *

If you're looking for your next spiritual adventure... or expect non-stop outdoor activity... or just want to hang out, chill and hit the beach under the pretense of "relational evangelism"... this internship probably isn't for you.

 

Will this be like a really long mission trip?

No! Absolutely not! An internship is NOT a mission trip (just longer). Most mission trips are non-stop, activity-heavy and you-focused. Your host wants to make sure you have an awesome experience while also taking full advantage of your help while there. There's nothing necessarily wrong with that, except that is NOT what your internship will be. This program is designed to equip you for success in future ministry, along with having you experience what living full-time on the mission field is actually like. That said, the dynamics of your stay will be very different than that of a short-term mission trip.

 

What's considered a successful internship?

We determine success by judging 5 factors:

#1... Have you learned and acquired the skills to assimilate into a foreign culture?

#2... Have you learned and acquired the skills to live in unity and work in unity within our community and with other pastors, churches, missionaries and organizations inter-denominationally?

#3... Have you cultivated a servant's heart? In other words, do you appreciate and pursue sacrificing for and serving others?

#4... Generally speaking, are you in a better place spiritually (in your walk with God) than when you arrived?

#5... Have you learned to rely on the Holy Spirit to equip you for ministry, instead of just your own natural strength and gifting?

 

If at the end of the internship we can affirm these five areas... then we'd say you've successfully completed our program.

 

What will I be doing? What will my role be?

Simple answer: EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING! Our goal is to give you the experiences and teaching you can draw from later so you succeed in the mission God calls you to. Therefore, we want you to be a student in everything you do whether you're leading worship, teaching a lesson, organizing programs, helping a local pastor, hanging out with people in the village, assisting a mission team or just having coffee with us in our kitchen.

Is Grenada Safe?

Absolutely yes! The island is known for being one of the most safe places for visitors in the world. In fact, Grenada is more safe than any state in the United States. Grenada has also had a stable, continuous and democratic government for over 40 years.

Does Grenada have modern technology?

Have no fear... the wifi is working! 😆

Joking aside, there are aspects of living overseas in a foreign culture that you'll have to adjust to. But your internship is not going to involve you living in "primitive conditions". We have reliable utilities just like back in the States with clean running water and dependable electricity, internet and cell service.

If I'm interested, what do I do next?

Fill out the application. We will then contact you and have an interview. Afterwards we'll ask you to fill out a more detailed application and then also have at least one more interview.
