WCRC internship programme accepting applications

The World Communion of Reformed Churches is pleased to announce that it has an internship opportunity for a highly qualified young person who is interested in gaining valuable experience working with an international ecumenical organization. The internship will be for 12 months in the WCRC offices in Hannover, Germany, beginning in the fall of 2015.

This opportunity is open to English-speaking individuals of WCRC member churches who are aged 30 or younger, including ministers, seminarians in their senior years or Christian professionals with an interest in working for their churches or the ecumenical movement at any level.

The intern will be given a variety of experiences within the WCRC, working with both of the programme offices, as well as the general secretariat. Areas of work in the internship experience include:

  • Theology, Mission, Communion and Ecumenical Engagement
  • Justice and Partnership (including economic, climate, gender and racial justice)
  • Communicating the stories of the World Communion of Reformed Churches

The WCRC internship programme is sponsored by the Evangelische Missionswerk (EWM) and covers almost all costs (including travel, housing, medical insurance and a small stipend). However, it is expected that the intern (or sponsoring church) will share in some costs (based on ability).

Deadline for applying is Friday, 29 August 2015—and all applications must be endorsed by a WCRC member church.

More information can be found on the internship programme page.
