The World Communion of Reformed Churches is accepting applications for its 2020 internship programme. The programme gives highly qualified young people an opportunity to gain valuable experience working with an international ecumenical organization. The internship will be for 12 months in the WCRC offices in Hannover, Germany, beginning in January 2020.
The programme is open to English-speaking individuals of WCRC member churches who are aged 30 or younger, including ministers, seminarians or Christian professionals with an interest in working for their churches or the ecumenical movement at any level. Women and individuals from the Global South are particularly encouraged to apply.
Interns are 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:
The WCRC internship programme is sponsored by the Evangelische Missionswerk (EMW) and covers almost all costs (including travel, housing, medical insurance and a small stipend). However, it is asked that the intern (or sponsoring church) share in some costs (based on ability).
Deadline for applying is 27 October 2019—and all applications must be endorsed by a WCRC member church.
