Student Internship

2 Months
Dates needed
June-July 2020
$3,800 (Approx.)
The Position

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, ABWE has canceled most international travel originating from the U.S. until the State Department drops the Global Health Advisory to a Level 2 or lower. However, please email our Mobilization team at go@abwe.org to discuss service opportunities and exceptions. We would love to talk with you!​

Through this internship, you will be mentored by and experience missionary life alongside ABWE missionaries serving in Madrid and other locations in central Spain. You will have the opportunity to learn and serve in a variety of ministries such as:

  • ESL
  • Sports Ministry
  • Community Bible Studies
  • Children's Ministry
  • Youth Ministry

This internship does require an intermediate knowledge of Spanish.

The Need

While Spain has been an outwardly religious country for centuries and many Spaniards know of Jesus, few know Him intimately. Less than 1 percent of the population in Spain claim to be evangelicals, and it has less evangelical Christians than some Muslim countries.

Since 1970, ABWE has been planting churches in Spain. While our missionaries are actively involved in some public ministries, the most effective approach seems to be “living-room evangelism” — using loving, persistent, person-to-person confrontation with the Word of God. Our desire is for Spaniards to meet Jesus in a personal way — so that they might find new life in Him.

The Impact

Use your passion for evangelism and discipleship to make an eternal impact on the mission field. Every ministry we begin, every project we undertake, and every relationship we develop is geared toward sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. However, we know that simply sharing the gospel with someone is only part of our calling as missionaries: we’re also called to walk alongside them and make disciples. If you love Jesus and have a heart for the lost and hurting, then we have a place for you.
