Join us in the San Francisco Bay Area as we seek to facilitate church planting movements among Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, and Buddhist people groups! Join a team that is working strategically to plant the gospel among unreached people groups. You will be mentored by an experienced missionary as part of your internship. You must be a self-starter, self-motivated person!
- Housing: $500/month (for a single, a family would be more, host families could be found for 2-3 months for shorter term interns)
- Transportation: $100/month
- Food/Misc.: $600/month
- Total: $1200/month (approx.)
Transportation: Bringing your own car would be best since public transit doesn’t run as frequently once you’re in the Greater Bay Area out of the city of San Francisco.
You will be doing a lot of walking, so you must be in good physical shape.
The Bay Area is one of the most influential urban centers in the world. People are coming in droves! One example is the tri-city area of Fremont, Newark, and Union City in Alameda County which is home to more than 40,000 first-generation Afghan immigrants and refugees. It is by far the largest concentration of Afghans in the United States. In Fremont there is a three-block area known as Little Kabul. It consists of Afghan restaurants, a Muslim bookstore and several Afghan markets. Various language groups are represented here, including Pashtu, Dari, Urdu, Farsi, and Hazaragi. The two primary languages are Pashto and Dari. Dari is very similar to Persian Farsi. Concord also has many Pashto speaking Afghans and a place of worship. Almost all Afghans are Muslim. We have a great opportunity to share Christ with them. Truly, the world is coming to us!
Our ministry exists to see an ever-expanding network of churches being planted among and through unreached people groups in the Bay Area. We will accomplish this by facilitating training for church Planting Movements among near-culture Christians, raising prayer efforts for the Bay Area, and modeling evangelism among unreached groups.
