Internships
Vision

The Serge Uganda team seeks to live as vessels of the gospel restoring communities to bring worshippers to Jesus. We value prayer and partnership, investing in emerging Ugandan leadership. We work together to show the compassion of Jesus to the poorest or the poor.

Overview of our ministry in Uganda

The Serge Uganda internship program contributes to the larger team purpose of testifying–by word and deed—to the gospel of God’s grace to Ugandans in the Fort Portal and Bundibugyo regions of Western Uganda.

We do this through discipleship and training in the local church and community. We are engaged in health outreach, medical care, clean water initiatives, nutrition programs, education and mobilizing laborers for the harvest.

We look for interns who are flexible, enthusiastic, and willing to be uncomfortable. Interns that thrive in our context have a team mentality, relational focus, heart to share Jesus in word and deed, sense of humor, adventurous spirit, and don’t mind a few creepy crawlies and outside bathrooms!

Uganda Interns will experience:
  • relational ministry through interaction with Ugandans and team members
  • fellowship with Jesus as you serve Him among the poor
  • shared cooking responsibilities
  • sharing the love of Jesus in story and action
  • “real” football with students
  • praying with the team and the sick and struggling
  • discipling youth
  • teaching

Engage the culture:

  • learn to greet in Lubwisi
  • enjoy long church services filled with dancing and singing
  • learn about Ugandan health and nutritional needs
  • eat Ugandan favorites like g-nut sauce with rice and goat

Serve the community in one or more of the following areas:

  • engineering/construction
  • youth discipleship
