Grow your global outlook with an International Needs (NZ) Internship
In 2015 there is an opportunity for students to complete an internship with International Needs (IN), based in Tauranga. This is a great opportunity to be trained, equipped and empowered in a role that will include the learning and development of robust office procedures, disaster and aid management, cross cultural evangelism, child sponsorship and in the process you will gain a NZQA qualification in Christian Ministry (through Pathways College of Bible and Mission, www.pathways.ac.nz). This internship offers you a fusion of academic study, ministry experience, quality mentoring and personal growth opportunities while making a positive impact in the lives of people in NZ and around the world. For more details about this potentially life changing opportunity please email John Elen.
