Summer Internships for Disciples Seminarians: Deadline extended to April 15

Summer Internships for Disciples Seminarians: Deadline extended to April 15

Dear Friends:

The Division of Overseas Ministries/Global Ministries is offering another unique experience for Disciples seminarians to be engaged in a ministry of Critical Presence, that is timely and appropriately meeting God’s people and creation at the point of deepest need: spiritually, physically, emotionally, and/or economically. This year, DOM/Global Ministries is providing 2 internships for Disciples seminarians. 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 dates of the internships are June 6 through August 12, 2011.  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 a combination of two programs DOM/Global Ministries has sponsored in the past, which consisted of the Seminarians People-to-People Pilgrimage and the Internship Program and 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.

Global Ministries would like you to nominate candidates for these 2 positions or you may choose to post the positions within your network. Applications must be completed and returned by April 15, 2011 to Julia Brown Karimu, Vice President, Division of Overseas Ministries.  The address is P.O. Box 1986, Indianapolis, IN 46206 or To request an application, contact Onea Winkle or 317-713-2567
