Harvest USA Paid Internship – Women’s Ministry

Harvest USA is a community of people who are passionate about the gospel of Jesus Christ and believe that it is good news for those struggling with sexual sin. We are dedicated to helping men, women, and families impacted by sexual sin and to providing resources that equip churches to be places of hope and healing for sexual strugglers.

Brief Overview 

The Harvest USA internship is a paid, in-person, 9-month long program (September – May) designed to further equip a person for ministry to those who have been impacted by sexual sin. The internship will require approximately 3-6 hours each week. Each intern will have the opportunity to engage in targeted discipleship with ministry recipients as well as help facilitate a biblical support group. In addition, each intern will participate in other training opportunities noted below.
