Internship Opportunities

Restoration Outreach Programs (ROP) offers a variety of internship opportunities for undergraduate/graduate students and recent college graduates interested in a career in missions. ROP internships are designed to inspire students with a life-long appreciation and commitment to relational ministry and asset based community development (ABCD) by providing unique, hands-on opportunities to interact with urban, immigrant, & refugee communities.  Internships provide a multi-ministry focus with a full missionary experience, training, or support services under the mentorship of ROP’s missionary staff, lead volunteers, and other professionals. The experience gained through ROP internships should provide both the knowledge and experience base to prepare the intern for entry level employment within related fields.
