Metro New York/ North Jersey Central Asian Outreach Summer Internship


Global migration is not a random event of history, but a movement of people that God has ordained. Acts 17:26-27 declares: 

“From one man he has made every nationality to live over the whole earth and has determined their appointed times and the boundaries of where they live. He did this so that they might seek God, and perhaps they might reach out and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.” 

Even as God moves people, or allows people to move, around the globe, He prepares the heart of His Church to welcome them and share the Good News of Jesus – the Gospel – with them in their new home. This Summer Internship will teach you skills that are practiced by cross cultural missionaries around the world. You will live out these skills with your new neighbors.

  • Clothing: Please dress very modestly- NO shorts, no tight or revealing clothing, and no sleeveless shirts. The way you are dressed will impact people’s ability to hear our message. We are interacting primarily with Muslims, and they will be dressed modestly (not in shorts/tanks).
  • To Bring: Make sure to bring comfortable shoes, a backpack, a water bottle, sunscreen, a clipboard or notebook, and a writing utensil for when you are out.

A local church has a missionary home that will be available for interns to stay for the duration of the internship at a very low cost. More details about this will be shared during the interview. 


There is public transportation in our area, but for the purposes of this trip, we highly suggest having your own vehicle. Using services like Uber and Lyft would also work and is easy to do, but will most likely be more expensive in the end, depending on where you are staying. 


We strongly encourage lunch/dinner to be eaten at local ethnic restaurants. Plan for a high estimate of $30-$50/day per person for food.
