Features of Converge

I will be enrolled in the Converge Missional Internships Course, an Extension Studies course of the University of the Nations.

Five phases

Converge guides me through spiritual and practical preparations to serve with my host organization. The five phases of the course include Pre-Departure, Enculturation,  Assessment, Project, and  Debriefing. 

Oversight

I am responsible to choose a Mentor for spiritual and professional support through the entire internship.

When I arrive at the internship site, the Host conducts an orientation, the Enculturation, to introduce me to the organization and the community.

project

I will complete various assignments designed to help me serve as a member of the Host’s organization.

I will conduct Interviews, Observe, Map, and then I Propose a Final Project that addresses a perceived need at the location.
