The Serge Uganda team seeks to live as vessels of the gospel restoring communities to bring worshippers to Jesus. We value prayer and partnership, investing in emerging Ugandan leadership. We work together to show the compassion of Jesus to the poorest.
OVERVIEW OF OUR MINISTRY IN UGANDA
The Serge Uganda internship program contributes to the larger team purpose of testifying–by word and deed—to the gospel of God’s grace to Ugandans in the Bundibugyo district of Western Uganda. We do this through discipleship and training in the local church and community. We are engaged in health outreach, medical care, clean water initiatives, nutrition programs, education, and mobilizing laborers for the harvest.
We look for interns who are flexible, enthusiastic, and willing to be uncomfortable. Interns that thrive in our context have a team mentality, relational focus, heart to share Jesus in word and deed, sense of humor, adventurous spirit, and don’t mind a few creepy crawlies and outside bathrooms!
