Event Description

Year of Your Life (YOYL) is a one-year internship dedicated primarily to serving Living Hope Church. The YOYL programme is aimed at students ages 18 years and older who are fully on board with the vision and heart of Living Hope. The applicants will need to be able to cover the costs of their air ticket and visa (but visa supporting documents will be supplied by Living Hope). The internship is a full-time commitment requiring at least 35 hours from Tuesday to Sunday. All interns will have a role that requires them to serve at weekend services and special events. Your individual role will be attached to a specific Living Hope congregation and this role will be managed by that congregation’s eldership team. The internship is a volunteer position and unpaid. However, accommodation and food are included via a host family to which you will be assigned. There are some expenses you will incur which are reclaimable. Interns must seek once-off sponsorship and/or monthly sponsorship for personal finances during the YOYL internship.

Currently the YOYL internship is open to international applications from members of Four12 partnering churches. We have a January and September intake. Applications are currently open until 22 April 2019.

Email YOYL at yoyl@livinghope.im to ask for an application form.
