Unique 12-month internship for young people

The World Communion of Reformed Churches is pleased to announce that it has an internship opportunity for a highly qualified young person who is interested in gaining 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 2018.

This opportunity 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.

The intern will be 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:

    Theology and Communion
    Justice and Witness (including economic, climate, gender and racial justice)
    Mission
    Ecumenical Engagement
    Communicating the stories of the WCRC

The WCRC internship programme is sponsored by the Evangelische Missionswerk (EWM) 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 15 October 2017—and all applications must be endorsed by a WCRC member church.
