Are you looking for an opportunity to grow in faith?
People with a Mission Ministries (PWAMM) is at an exciting stage in its journey.
We are a Christian ministry based at the National Christian Outreach Centre in the beautiful historic city of Perth in the very heart of Scotland.
We have a gifted, creative and committed multi-generational team who love to serve Jesus. We have a strong commitment to base our lives on the teaching and authority of the Bible, to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and an openness to the renewing work of the Holy Spirit.
Our purpose is to
“take God’s power and presence back to the communities of Scotland.”
We are looking for interns age 18 and above to come and join our team, to give a year to God serving Jesus.
Throughout the week you will be based in one of PWAMM’s working departments, dividing your time between serving, training, leadership development and mission.
As part of a busy team you could help keep our operation at the National Christian Outreach Centre rolling, from first contact at reception to co-ordinating conferences and events, learning skills in personnel, finance and programme planning.
You could learn practical skills, e.g. painting and decorating, carpentry, plumbing. Or you could be helping in our vehicle workshop to keep our fleet of exhibition buses and transport vehicles on the road taking teams out on mission.
You could learn how to co-ordinate and run conference bookings, dealing with groups using our premises, or you could train to work in a professional kitchen. You might learn the running of a successful on site restaurant and book/gift shop.
You could help at our Drop-In centre for those struggling with addictions and substance abuse or those in refuge. Or you could be part of teams in our Community Safe Bus in the city centre every weekend from 10pm-2am
As part of our Burning Issues Drama Group you could work with professionally trained actors, you could design and build theatre sets. Or you might learn the art of being a puppeteer with the Puppets with a Mission Team.
Do you want to discover your gifts and acquire new skills?
Do you want to grow as a leader and as a disciple of Jesus Christ?
You will be encouraged to grow through serving and learning in your working department.
You will be challenged and inspired as part of our frontline mission and ministry teams taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ across the country, from the Borders throughout the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
You will be part of our worshipping community, Perth Christian Fellowship with regular Sunday and weekday Services and also be given the opportunity to attend weekly teaching sessions on a wide range of specialised subjects as part of the ACTS Discipleship Course, and the New Year Bible School.
Mentoring and Personal Development
You will be assigned a mentor to help support your development.
He or she will meet with you regularly, to pray with you and help you to work through any challenges you may be facing.
Throughout the year you will have the opportunity to join teams taking the good news of the Gospel around the nation, using neoplan exhibition buses with onboard cinema for Christian films and presentations and separate coffee lounge.
Our on-site restaurant is a wonderful outreach opportunity, regularly catering for 400 customers per day and our Book and Gift Shop offers Christian books, Bibles, gifts, music and greetings cards for all occasions.
How much will it cost?
As an intern you are a volunteer, not an employee. We won’t charge you anything; in fact food, accommodation and a subsistence allowance will be provided. You may need to have additional income or savings to support yourself for the year, for personal expenses.
Where will I live?
You will live with other interns in Potter’s House, a property owned by PWAMM in the city of Perth, within walking distance of our base at the National Christian Outreach Centre.
Will I be able to do extra work?
No, not really – you won’t have time! Service at PWAMM is a calling on our lives and to get the most out of your year’s internship, you need to be committed full-time to the ministry.
