Our Mission

“DEVELOPING YOUNG ADULTS THROUGH A STUDY & MINISTRY PROGRAM”

Our Vision

“TO DEVELOP REPRODUCING CHRISTIAN LEADERS”

We follow a 40% ministry, 40% study, 20% personal growth format. Interns will engage with a variety of ministry experiences, while learning through their academic studies and be challenged to grow in faith and character. We strive to provide each intern with the environment to:

  • KNOW & ENGAGE IN GOD’S MISSION

  • TO MATURE AS A DISCIPLE OF CHRIST

  • DEVELOP AS A FUTURE MINISTRY LEADER

  • REPRESENT & SERVE GOD FAITHFULLY & PASSIONATELY WHEREVER HE PLACES THEM

The 4 Year Programme

Interns have the opportunity to be on the programme from anywhere between one year, or the entirety of their bachelors degree. Interns in each year of the programme are rubbing shoulders and doing ministry together as a unit, although each year has its own specific emphasis, pushing interns to grow in a focussed area of ministry.

"I came into the year wanting growth in my spiritual life and I have received that in full. I have experienced spiritual change that has revolutionised my walk with God. The internship has prepared me well as I move onto further endeavours. Next year, I will be studying business at the University of Canterbury, as well as doing an internship with a business called Pathway, which works with reintegrating prisoners. I have learnt so many valuable skills this year through the opportunities Word of Life has given me. I know that all these will come in useful as I move into further study, work and ministry. Despite not being the year I expected, I have still learnt and grown so much."

Jona Cooper, First Year Intern 2020

"I have loved this year! It has been challenging and I have had to deal with things I never saw coming, but I have grown a lot! I have loved having the opportunity to serve God and play just a tiny part in what He is doing through Word of Life. I love the staff and I see how each of them value the Gospel so highly in their lives, which is something that I long to do. I have loved the opportunity to study God’s Word more deeply. Towards the second half of the year, God began to lay ministry and staying on with WOL on my heart. He began to change what I value and view highly in my life. Next year I will be staying on with Word of Life to do a second year internship. I will be studying Biblical Counselling online through Liberty University. I see counselling as something that will really benefit me in ministry. I am really excited to see what God has in store for me next year!"
