    Internship Location & Culture

    As a Converge Volunteer, you will use your gifts, talents, and abilities to help connect students who are ready to go into ALL the world, including EVERY area of influence. (Mt. 28:18-20) Be a Volunteer with us if you too are dedicated to the spiritual formation of individuals and the transformation of nations. We created Converge internships, our primary ministry program, to develop missions-minded leaders for every sphere of influence. We also develop curriculum and resources, conduct retreats/short-courses, and various social media and print media communications. YWAM Converge is developing a team of certified UofN internship coordinators, YWAMers who will serve as members of an international roundtable for the purpose of overseeing, managing, and expanding the Converge program. Undergirding all our ministries is the generous work of volunteers who lend their skills and abilities, their prayers and their training, to develop this international network. No matter what your skills or abilities, there are many volunteer opportunities for you with YWAM Converge.

    This volunteer opportunity is virtual and remote. Even if you live in South Jersey, your volunteer tasks will be to engage with students and campus ministries, host and partner organizations, YWAM ministries and leaders, and other volunteers virtually from your own home. You will connect with people who share your passion for Jesus Christ and with projects to help them make a difference. Our vision for the next wave of world missions is a convergence of short term with long term missions, a convergence of passionate prayer and worship with academics and practical projects. So, your work as a Volunteer with Converge will be to join a ministry that truly seeks to disciple all nations through every sphere of influence. To do that, we believe there must be a convergence of the sacred calling with the secular (so-called) career.

    When the Coronavirus crisis caused governments to declare health emergencies and businesses closed all over the world, those businesses, as well as schools, NGOs, and even churches all went virtual. Because many organizations can no longer host interns, we have pivoted to accept virtual internships. Now the challenge is to help hosts and students learn about Converge. Partnership is something we long for but often have a difficult time defining. Churches and organizations are seeking to partner with the global community in ever increasing degrees, yet partnership is often a broad elusive term that can be defined very differently depending on the context. YWAM Converge is about Partnerships and Networks within and outside YWAM, including leaders of missional organizations, students, and members of their communities. Every Converge student and his/her mentor and donor community is in a micro-partnership with the host and their missional organization. As a Volunteer, you help make those partnerships possible.

    At YWAM Converge, we help you make a difference with missional organizations. We have added virtual remote internships—that is, an internship that you can do from anywhere, which can take place over the summer, over the course of a semester, or throughout the year. Virtual Remote Internships are no longer only for internet-friendly companies. Everyone has been forced to adjust to a new normal. Virtual Remote opportunities include: Prayer Mobilization Worship Leadership for Non-formal gatherings (No agenda-Just Jesus) Support Evangelist (Responding to Inquiries in Salesforce) YWAM Evangelist & Liaison (Connecting with YWAMers) Campus Evangelist & Liaison (Connecting with Students and Faculty) Host Evangelist & Liaison (Connecting with Organizations to Host Internships) Social Media Evangelist & Community Advocate (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) Writer (Blog Posts, Emails, LinkedIn, Social Media, PR Announcements) House Parties (Small group presentations of the Converge vision) Videographer Online Meetings Coordination & Engineering Online Course Designer Google Ads Management CRM Database Administrator or Developer (Salesforce) Website Optimization (Speed, SEO, Photos) Ruby on Rails Software Developer Just like any Converge internship, Converge Volunteers will need strong communication and time-management skills. Virtual Remote Volunteers will get training for use of collaborative platforms, such as Slack, Trello, and Google Suite.

    You will be responsible for your own housing and meals. There are no fees, so you are responsible for all your own expenses during this volunteer experience. You can define your hours and duration of service.
