Light of the World Ministries consists of a thriving community church, a solid Bible school and a quality elementary school. With its diverse ministries, it is an ideal situation for hosting this internship program.
Interns are exposed to a wide variety of mission life experiences. Life skills are taught, including the following topics: vehicle and property maintenance, health and nutrition, agriculture, cooking and sewing, language acquisition, personal finance on the mission field and more.
Practical Ministries are taught through hands-on ministry in the following areas: village ministry, children’s ministry, youth ministry, hospital ministry, planning and participation in local church activities, introduction to administration, community services (including schools, prisons, disabled children institutes, AIDS centers).
Spiritual Growth is encouraged through times of private and corporate worship, Bible studies and personal devotions. Interns attend formal Bible training in a classroom setting. Topics include Marriage and Family, Ministerial Ethics, Church History, Communication Skills, Submission and Authority, and much more.
Interns are housed on a private property, including a 12-bedroom, recreation area, walking trails and a soon coming swimming pool! The dorms are located just 10 minutes from Francistown city center. Interns enjoy everyday life in a modern, African setting.
This program is designed for those who want to have a “taste” of mission life. One month interns join with the one year program for the activities for that period. Special, intensive classes are included to give a general overview of mission life. One month interns may choose, with the input and approval of the directors, the month which they will attend. The one month participant will no doubt desire to come back for more!
The three month program is designed similarly to the one month program. The three month program is a set schedule and runs from June through August each year. Interns experience all that the one year participants experience for that three month period.
Interns who participate in the one year program will be exposed to the most missions experiences, and upon completion of the one year program, will be eligible to receive a certificate of completion. Only those who complete one full, consecutive year will receive a certificate for both the Bible training they have completed as well as for the internship program.
Fees include international travel to Francistown, all transportation within Botswana, and food and accommodation.
