Internship opportunity


Dear SCMers,

The Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church has invited WSCF to spread the news about these internship opportunities. They are fully funded. Applications are due February 5, 2012.

There is a letter below from Global Ministries' General Secretary Thomas Kemper about the programs.

WSCF's Geneva office has also applied to be a host site for one of the Mission Interns. so there is even the chance that a SCMer could work at our office in Geneva!

Let me know if I can be of help if you would like to submit an application.

God's blessings,


Dear Partners,

For 60 years, Global Ministries has been sending young people into service. Through the US-2 and mission intern programs, we have enriched the lives of thousands of young men and women, and through their witness touched uncountable youth, adults, and communities. The US-2 and mission intern programs develop church leaders, as young people work in communities that face issues such as poverty, racism, or environmental justice.

US-2s serve two years living out faith through social justice in the United States. They live, work, and make a positive impact working with a United Methodist partner organization, boldly reexamining their role and participation in society to address systemic injustice. Mission interns integrate the global and local by serving for three years, approximately half of the time in an international community and half in their home country. They respond to the prophetic voice of communities and individuals working for systemic change around the world, walking the path of justice, mercy, and love.

The deadline for the 2012 class of mission interns and US-2s is February 5. Please share the application with those in your networks and communities between the ages of 20 and 30 throughout our global connection, who are committed to addressing the root causes of injustice. The application is available here:

Mission interns and US-2s are encouraged to engage in disciplined theological reflection and are equipped to discern God’s calling for their lives. Thank you for partnering with us in shaping ethical, prophetic Christian leaders who are engaged firsthand in God’s mission in a world of injustice and need.

In mission and ministry together,

Thomas Kemper

Thomas G. Kemper
