2015 Summer Internship for Disciples Seminarians

2015 Summer Internship for Disciples Seminarians

The Division of Overseas Ministries/Global Ministries offers a unique experience for Disciples seminarians to be engaged in a ministry of Critical Presence:  timely and appropriately meeting God’s people and creation at the point of deepest need – spiritually, physically, emotionally, or economically.

DOM/Global Ministries is providing two internships for Disciples seminarians over the summer of 2015.  The seminarians will have an opportunity to engage with a variety of programs within Global Ministries:  Africa and Latin America partnerships, mission personnel and communications.

The tentative dates of the internships are June 1 through August 7, 2015.  The intern must be a candidate for ordained ministry in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and must have completed 2 years of full-time study.  The Division of Overseas Ministries/Global Ministries will provide each intern with a weekly stipend, and as applicable, round-trip transportation and housing.  In addition, all expenses related to a pilgrimage to visit one of Global Ministries’ overseas partners will be provided.

This program is an on-going response to the current imperatives of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  It is an opportunity for seminarians to work in an area of global mission and to visit with overseas church partners and agencies.  The objective of this program is to help nurture and develop leaders who have a commitment to God’s mission in the world and a passion for justice.

Applications must be completed and returned by March 31, 2015 to Dr. Catherine Nichols.  The address is P. O. Box 1986, Indianapolis, IN 46206 or cnichols@dom.disciples.org.
