Placement DETAILS

We aim to match interns with the most appropriate placement for them, based on people groups and areas of interest. 

We have a bank of placements all over the world and in the UKWe are very flexible and can work with your placements or ours.  Maybe you could help your local church to engage the unreached on their doorstep? Maybe you could spend 3 months in 4 different locations? The possibilities are as endless as your imagination, so don’t be afraid to dream. 

If you are a church and would like to host an intern, please see our Placements page, or get in contact with us to discuss options.

Lucy:  After spending many years working cross culturally in one of the poorest states in India, I thought coming back to the UK was just a time to wait. A time to wait for the next trip, a time to wait until I was connected with God again, a time to wait until I could ‘GO’ again.

But, this year, being on the Unreached internship I find that my world is being flipped upside down.

Rebekah:  I came to the city of Plymouth for university in 2017 and have been part of Redeemer Church since then. Reflecting on my time at university, God placed students from different nations in my path – both on my course or through the Christian Union. I found such joy in getting to know and spending time with those students, some of whom have since become great friends. During some Unreached training at the beginning of my internship I learnt that we all have such a great opportunity to take Jesus to the nations by loving, embracing and spending time with those on our doorstep…mission starts at home! 

Jesus has also gently challenged and magnified in my heart the importance of stepping into relationships with people who are not like us – people from different nations, backgrounds, faiths and cultures. I hope that as you consider an Unreached Internship that God will stir a desire within you to take his gospel to those from other nations, those who are on the margins and those who are different.

 Ian:  I agreed to be on the ‘Unreached Internship’ because I was asked to.  It is as simple as that. I am in Greece for 4-5 years as my Wife secured a job here. I wish I could say it was always what I wanted to, that I have a call to the nations and mission is in my blood! Not as far as I am aware. However, I am increasingly grateful that I am here.

Already, I am being reminded of the centrality of the Great Commission and making disciples. It is not that I didn’t believe that before, but my focus was elsewhere. I am sure there are more lessons to learn and there will be. 

The Unreached Internship provides a focus for me as I am involved in disparate elements of work. It will be interesting to see, God willing, where this leads.

Perhaps what I will find is that the opportunity to serve God in a different context changes ‘unreached’ parts of my soul, mind and heart.

We have received excellent teaching via books and teaching videos on how to minister effectively cross-culturally, which I have found insightful and thought provoking. We have considered how we interpret the Bible through our western lens and how we present ourselves and convey the Christian message in contextualised ways. Each month we have an online session which includes devotionals, testimonies and a unique opportunity to hear the authors expand on their teaching and to dialogue with them.

My internship placement is in a new multicultural church plant; as it is in its early stages, there are lots of opportunities for participation. To facilitate the various cultures represented, we worship and pray in various languages and we fellowship together after church with a shared lunch. During the week I help out at a mum’s and toddlers’ group and an English class, which has afforded me opportunities to befriend ladies from various cultures in the surrounding community.
