Application Process


OM Internships

Join us for your internship. God just might alter your whole outlook on life. That’s kind of what happens when you sign on for the adventure of serving Jesus. So, what do previous interns and their professors say?

If you’re curious about how it works to apply for an internship in the USA or overseas, we understand. It’s a big decision to think about spending 6 – 10 weeks serving whether in the US or abroad. Check our process, or see if we’ve got you covered in our FAQs.

As a part of every International OM internship experience, you will be asked to participate in a training program prior to departure. This program is a great opportunity to participate in a virtual community with fellow OM interns, and to receive training in some of the fundamental aspects of missions from an OM staff coach.  It is our desire that you would feel cared for and equipped both before departure and throughout your OM internship, and that this training time will be a valuable opportunity for both field preparation and spiritual growth

If you browse through our options and you just can’t find a fit, there is an option to find you a customized internship. To find out about custom internships check out our Custom Internship FAQs. Or, if you already know what you are looking for, you can jump straight to the Custom Internship Request Form, to begin the process of hand-crafting an internship just for you.

Read about OM...

For over 50 years, Operation Mobilization has been working around the world with local churches to form deep relationships, extend compassion, and start spiritual conversations while living alongside the people to whom we minister. When this happens, we see communities transformed as Jesus takes a hold of the hearts and lives of the people we encounter.

We are a movement of 6,800 people who don’t fit a mold, who don’t sit still, and who love the adventure of serving Jesus. We live in remote corners and city-centers. We feed the hungry and heal the sick. We are Missionaries. [Visit the OM USA website]

You Should Know...

APPLY RIGHT AWAY to get the best selection of overseas internship options! Your application should be completed at least 4 months before you want to leave for your internship. That leaves time for confirming an internship for you, completing the application process and raising funds. HOWEVER, if you already have funds to cover your costs, your application can be received closer to the date you want to start. Since internship opportunities are limited, the sooner you apply the more likely you will be able to serve in the location/internship of your choice.

A few more things you should know... [Read more...]

  • You will not be going with a group, but as an individual to join our long term workers in their ministry on the field.
  • There may or may not be other Americans on your team, since OM is made up of people from over 95 countries. This is a good thing.
  • Your team will pick you up from the airport, arrange for your accommodation, orientation, and training, and oversee you during your time with them.
  • You will be responsible for either paying for or raising support to cover your costs for international internships. Those who give to your trip will receive a tax receipt.
