J-Team: Missions Internship

Have you ever thought of spending time on the mission field?


Our Program

HHGlobal officially began their internship program in November of 2008, just one year after the dedication of the Dyer Rural Hospital in Rio Viejo. Under the leadership of Dr. Martin and Wendy Williams the internship program has expanded and developed into two intense missions experiences designed to give interns a glimpse into what full time missions work is really like.

Is an internship right for you?

Do you feel a call into full time missions, but are still attending college or university? Are you interested in learning more about the inner workings of a Christian missions organization located in the Third World? Do you want to know what it is like to be on the receiving side of a short-term mission teams? Are you interested in pursuing a career in full-time missions but want to get your feet wet first? If you have answered “yes” to any one of these questions, then the HHGlobal Missions Internship Program might be right for you!
