Multiply NYC Internship – Summer Term
Location: New York, NY
Cost: $1,714 plus food
Multiply is an internship where you will learn how to be on mission in a city that desperately needs the Gospel by being fully immersed in the culture. You will be placed in a local urban ministry and serve alongside them.
We are looking for all kinds of students. We will match students with churches based on the students’ strengths and the church’s needs.
Must have completed at least 1 year of college.
Along with serving others, you will be trained and equipped as a missionary by hearing from various pastors, missionaries, and church planters who are experienced in urban ministry. You will also grow in learning how to make disciples and be on mission wherever you are in the context of community. As you serve, you will meet the spiritual, physical, and social needs of the people of New York City.
Our goal is to train and equip young leaders to experience ministry in a Global City, and hopefully for their hearts to be broken for ministry either here in NYC, or at the least for them to open their hearts to see what God is calling them to do in their life.
Our plan to mentor student missionaries is to build students during our Friday Development Days. These Development days will consist of a debrief time each week to hear about the good and the bad of the week, and to walk through those. We will also read a book as a group over the summer that will encourage, train, and build them. Also, we will take time on Fridays to have fellowship as a group. Sometimes, these fellowship times are fun group outings like hiking, beach trips, or baseball games. Other times, we visit other churches or ministries in our city where the students can have even more experience seeing the diversity and challenges of doing ministry here in NYC.
Interns will live at our building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. We have dorm-like rooms where they will have up to 3 roommates.
We have a full-service kitchen in our building that is available to interns. Also, we encourage students to eat out some and engage people in the city.
We depend on Public Transit (Subway/Buses) to travel around the city.
Language skills are a huge plus, considering the broad range of cultures here in New York. Churches also often are looking for help with worship ministries and kids ministry, so skills and gifts in that area are also a huge plus.
