Vancouver – 9 months internshipUrban Ministry, Multicultural
ANTICIPATED STARTSeptember to May
Participants6 (min) to 8 (max)
COST PER PERSON$900 CAD
The multi-ethnic character of Vancouver allows leaders to learn how to cross cultures sensitively in order to build friendship and share the good news concerning Jesus. More than half of the population of Vancouver consider English as their second language. How do we partner with other thriving faith communities who worship Jesus in such cultural diversity?
Teams, Interns and apprentices will be placed in environments where passion for God, spiritual growth, and empowerment can be cultivated. How do you become spiritually vibrant and alive when the Church and its people are at the margins of society? You will have opportunity to explore the foundations of their identity in Christ as it relates to their unique personalities, insecurities, and ability to work in a team.
