*** Internship Cancelled for 2016 ***
April 19, 2016:
This internship program has been cancelled for the summer of 2016, but stay tuned next year for updates on this unique opportunity to receive missionary training!
Are you desiring an intense cross-cultural missions internship that will personally mentor you through your calling, identity in Christ, and role in God’s world mission?
Would you like to gain hands-on experience with mercy ministry, university student ministry, and children’s ministry, in a safe church planting community?
Then the Leopolis Green Internship, offered by our L’viv Church Planting Team in beautiful L’viv, Ukraine, may be right for you!
- Leo-polis means “Lion City” and is the medieval Latin name for L’viv
- Green stands for “The Greenhouse”
This two-month summer internship program is a “greenhouse” for new missionaries to be mentored and trained in a personal church planting community.
It is designed for seminary students, upper class college students, and young families from American PCA churches, other reformed churches (such as the OPC), or the Reformed University Fellowship (RUF).
Others know they are in need of more experience before launching into a longer-term commitment in cross-cultural missions abroad or at home.
This program provides a safe community where interns are mentored, trained, and taught about the workings of cross-cultural missions, with the goal in mind that this will affect their understanding, not only of missions and of themselves, but also of their place in the kingdom of God.
From Mission to the World (MTW) Website:
“Leopolis Green is an intensive missionary training internship in a community where you will be engaged in university, mercy, and children’s ministry in the afternoons and trained through lecture/discussions in the morning.”
From Team L’viv Website:
“Leopolis Green is looking for teachable, mature people with leadership ability who have an interest in foreign ministry, who are up for intense training, and who have an adventuresome attitude for two months. You must have completed at least two years of university or be 20 years of age.”
