Cambodia: Church Ministry Internship Summer 2023


Cambodia is a land full of hopelessness—people plagued by poverty, corruption, and a sense of fatalism. Jesus is a life-saver and a life-giver! Join us in Cambodia and build relationships that testify to God's saving grace and the hope found in Him alone.


All applicants should have a warm, friendly disposition and good people skills.


Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Length of Service

Mid-term: 6–8 weeks

Ministry Overview

Most of your time as an intern will be spent in Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh. Phnom Penh is rapidly developing with lots of traffic and lots of opportunities. As an intern, you will be sharing a bedroom with the other intern in the missionary’s small church, which also functions as a women’s dorm for six university students. In the dorm, you will be expected to share the role together in leading a weekly devotion or Bible study, as well as building relationships with the girls, learning Cambodian life and culture from them, and sharing Christ’s love.
In addition to the dorm ministry, you will also become involved in the services and other ministries of Church of Hope, a church planted by the Romdenhs in 2020. We would ask you to have some lessons and activities prepared for the kids at church. If you have any musical inclination (such as playing the guitar, piano, or singing), there would be an opening to help lead worship or share a special.
Third, you will be expected to teach English. Your students could be a variety of ages and at a variety of speaking levels (you could be teaching children at a very beginner’s level, or teaching youth or university students at a more advanced or intermediate level). You should have several lessons prepared on a variety of subjects and consider bringing along resources to aid in learning (we recommend children’s books, visual aids such as pictures, and other small objects.)
While the majority of your time will be spent in Phnom Penh, you will have the opportunity to visit at least two other provinces (more rural geographic areas), including Takeo Province and Siem Reap Province. You will spend two to three days in each province, learning the provincial cultures and ministering alongside our ministry partners, Pastor Poleak and Pastor Arun and their families. Ministry on these trips could include teaching English, children’s ministry, visiting house churches or small groups, and more.
While these are the main ministry focuses of the internship position, it may be possible to provide exposure to other areas of interest.
