The summer internship program is designed to give young adults hands-on experience in ministering to nationals and serving the ministry as a whole. Our Summer Internship is targeted at young people with prior cross cultural missions experience who desire to go to the next level and see what it is like to live and work here on a more permanent capacity.
Summer interns have incredible opportunities for personal ministry to the nationals through relationship evangelism and service projects, as well as the opportunity to serve behind the scenes on the mission base.
Through our Summer Internship, Thrive Africa endeavors to provide authentic hands-on missions experiences through ministry in rural villages, building relationships with nationals, and discipling local Believers. We coach young leaders to soar to the heights of their potential, propelling them towards God’s heart for the nations of the world to be reached with the life-altering love of Jesus.

Summer Interns also experience awesome adventures: going on a safari through a game reserve, shopping in an African market, hiking in this beautiful country.
Summer interns will be involved in a variety of ministry types. The main form of ministry you will be involved in is relationship evangelism and discipleship: ministering to people in their homes through acts of service and relationship-building. This will be about 1/3 of the time that you are here, the other time is spent in classes and serving the ministry as a whole. You may also have the opportunity to be involved in children’s and hospital ministry.
