Description

One Mission Society unites in partnership with more than 180 organizations and denominations for one purpose: to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ spread throughout the world, with the greatest number of disciples made, and to see God glorified in all that we say and do — to help fulfill the Great Commission. This has been, is and always will be our One Mission.

Here's a look at One Mission Society by the numbers:
-Every 31 seconds, on average, someone comes to know the Lord through the ministries of One Mission Society.
-OMS-related ministries are carried out in more than 45 languages around the world.
-OMS ministry includes more than 14,000 indigenous coworkers.
-OMS plants more than 6,000 churches every year.
-OMS in an evangelical, interdenominational faith mission that has 30+ denominations represented within its missionary membership.

Our mission is succinctly defined by our mission statement:

By God's grace, One Mission Society unites, inspires and equips Christians to make disciples of Jesus Christ, multiplying dynamic communities of believers around the world.

Responsibilities

Do you have interest in counseling and the desire to apply that in a missions context? Come serve as part of the Missionary Care team at OMS. Shadow the Director of Missionary Care and take part off proactive care and planning to help missionaries transition to life overseas. Shadow debrief conversations with missionaries who have finished their term or are back in the USA while raising additional funds. Assist with scheduling and other administrative functions. Help with a three-week cross-cultural training for missionaries about to be deployed overseas. This internship may meet requirements for a counseling practicum.

This internship reports to the Director of Missionary Care and is for approximately 10 weeks.

At One Mission Society, our internship program is carefully designed to be a catalyst toward a deeper understanding of God’s heart for the world and how we can make an impact on that world through Him. Because of the design of the internship, we are searching for Christ-centered individuals, especially those who are praying and giving serious consideration toward future cross-cultural ministry.

NOTE:
One Mission Society is a faith-based mission so our staff (including interns) raises 100% of their financial support to cover their salary and ministry expenses. Internships can be unpaid (volunteered) or paid (raise support, like for a mission trip). Free housing may be available for interns.
