Literacy and Scripture Engagement Internship

West Africa

Our West Africa Literacy and Scripture Engagement internship offers an opportunity to one intern to view the Bible translation ministry roles of literacy and Scripture engagement (i.e., discipleship) in a cross-cultural setting. The intern will have the opportunity to experience town and village living throughout the summer and actively engage in literacy and Scripture engagement activities, and language learning (depending on current field personnel and intern interest). This intern will have the opportunity to learn about and interact with a local people group of a neighboring faith, participate in language learning, as well as learn how to build relationships and minister within their cultural context.
