The Serge Internship Experience
Share the Gospel
Alongside Serge Missionaries
Live in deep community with Serge missionaries and learn how to develop relationships with local believers and non-believers, while sharing the gospel cross-culturally.
Experience gospel renewal, discipleship and equipping, so you can grow in your personal walk with Jesus as well as to be more effective in your personal ministry.
Explore Your Gifts
in a Cross-Cultural Context
Discover how God can use you, your unique gifts—even your brokenness—as a vessel to pour out His grace to others in cross-cultural ministry.
Spend a weekend in Philadelphia with Serge staff and your summer intern class intentionally preparing your heart, mind, and spirit for a brand new way to encounter the Gospel overseas.

“Going in, I was afraid I would get overseas and not do well at whatever job they had for me. But one of the things I love about Serge is that they care for people really well. I always had support, whether it was in the work, emotionally, or just being there in general. They provided a really solid environment to succeed in every way.”
– Olivia, a Serge summer intern
Steps to the Field
You’ve explored field options for next summer,
you’ve prayed, and you’re ready to apply. What happens next?
Applications are now open for Summer 2022 Missions Internships. Your first step is to fill out the internship application. This is how we get to know you! (It typically takes about 1-2 hours to complete.)
Final Application Deadline: January 14, 2022
Once your application is submitted, our Internship Coordinator will email you a Personal Page. This confidential document is used to help us consider all your needs and vulnerabilities in order to determine the best care practices for both you and the Serge team you’ll be serving on.
Then, you will meet with our internship coordinator for about 45 minutes to an hour for a phone interview. This helps us put a personality to your paperwork, which is a crucial step in the discernment process.
It’s also a chance for you to get to know us! Any questions or curiosities you have about Serge are welcomed and encouraged. Perhaps the most important part of the interview, though, is our chance to pray with and for you in this process.
Once a decision has been made, the Intern Coordinator will be in touch with you.
This is where your ministry starts!
When you are accepted into the program, the Internship Coordinator will guide you step-by-step through the entire support-raising process – with weekly calls for check-ins and prayer. We know it can be daunting, but we also believe there’s no better way that the Lord prepares us for the mission field.
You can expect challenges and growth in this journey, but you can also expect a dedicated mentor along the way. You will never be walking it alone.
You will then be invited to our Summer Intern Training Weekend – a retreat-style program that happens in Philadelphia every February.
This mandatory weekend experience is for all of our interns to gather together and learn more about our missions organization, the cross-cultural ministry experience in general, and all that the Lord may be calling you to through this opportunity. It’s also a time to worship and pray alongside one another. Strangers quickly become friends at ITW!
