- are looking for a next step to push you toward long-term service;
- are looking for a way to better understand the challenges of working in a Muslim context; or
- need an internship for your university or seminary program,
then we invite you to consider Launch Intensive, a two-week accelerated learning experience, happening June 11–23, 2021.
Set in a North African city, Launch Intensive uses cultural immersion to amplify the learning process. You’ll live with host families from the target culture and engage in everyday events (daily meals, family activities, etc.) to help you dive into the language and culture.
Launch Intensive is not only a short-term missions opportunity but also an educational opportunity for the growth of your mind and heart! You’ll study the local Arabic dialect through daily class time with native teachers. You’ll also have daily cultural sessions to learn methods for better understanding and engaging with the local culture.
Explore what long-term opportunities exist in this part of the world. You will learn about what work is being done among North Africans both in France and in North Africa, and you will be encouraged to think about how you might be a part of what God is doing there.
Just because Launch Intensive is a short-term program does not mean it will only have a short-term impact. Daily language and cultural instruction will build on top of the immersion experience in order to create greater learning potential. Get ready to be pushed toward greater cultural engagement and understanding.
