MAPS Volunteer (1-11 months)
MA (1-2 years)
Type: Children's Ministry, Church and Outreach, and Drama/Arts
A typical day would involve preparation for the Sunday service, using creative arts for performance for the main service and activities in the park, meeting with the children at their homes or refugee camp, staying in touch with them using social media. This opportunity could be suitable for a university internship for a school year. We are very open to new ideas and dreams in ministry to the children.

There is a possibility of housing being available as we currently are using a Bible school facility for our church-a monthly rent would still be needed but at a greatly reduced rate. A monthly budget would probably be about $3000/month but possibly less.
