Interns are a big part of our ministry and help to make a very substantial impact in the work here. We have had many young people intern with us for various lengths of time from a few weeks to several years. All of them have benefited greatly from their time with us, and we are excited about others coming to intern with us. Here is what a few of them have said about their time with us:
“I worked in Northwest Baptist Church over the summer of 2010. Pastor Travis allowed me to get right into the work and to experience, first-hand, a lot of different ministries. I was able to get involved with preaching, leading services, youth work, leaflet design, planning events, outreach, administration and so much more. Pastor Travis has a lot of time for interns and I loved being able to sit down with him to ask questions and listen to his advice for young people. The Snodes are a godly family and they have a real heart for God and for His work here in the UK. My summer there was invaluable and I’m grateful for their continual friendship.” – Alan from Northern Ireland
“My internship with the Snodes in Northern Ireland was actually my second time being there. The first time I was there was just a short missions trip with a small group from my church. That first trip impacted my life greatly. A couple days after being back home, I surrendered my life completely to the Lord. My internship was for two months. It was great to see and experience the everyday lives of the missionaries. I learned much more about the culture; the importance of discipleship; and also a lot from Mrs. Snode, whether it was from a Bible study or from her sharing her own personal experiences.” – Carie from Georgia
“Interning with the Snode family and Northwest Baptist Church is something that is currently changing my life! God is touching my heart to the needs of the mission field and I am learning valuable things that I will need one day when I am on the mission field myself. I’m thankful for the Lord’s leading in bringing me here, and I’m excited about the things He has yet to teach me while I’m here!” – Tiffany from Ohio
We would love to have you come intern with us or other partner ministries/churches in other parts of the UK and Ireland. If you are interested in coming to Northern Ireland or anywhere else in the UK or Ireland, you can apply by downloading the following documents and completely the appropriate application forms and sending in the required documents.
This document has general information about internships as well as a trip covenant and pastoral recommendation form, both of which must be signed and completed before you come.
This document is all about the sponsorship programme that will give you a visa to come into the UK. Since you are coming for longer than a week, you will be classified as a temporary religious worker by the UK Border Agency. Under this category, you will be allowed to come for a maximum of two years.
