Long Term Mission Opportunities

Become an Intern at New Beginnings!

If you are over 18 and have a desire to learn more about living in a foreign culture in remote Africa or if you are considering becoming a full-time missionary but wonder what this would involve, our intern program is for you.

You can serve in various ways through teaching, management, bookkeeping, grounds keeping, repair work, leading Bible studies, work with short term teams, etc. All of these positions will work closely with our full-time staff in Kenya and any full-time missionaries who keep New Beginnings running smoothly.

Intern opportunities are available for 1 to 6 months length. We will work with you to decide the best time for your arrival and departure and provide you with all necessary training.

You will reside on the beautiful, secure grounds of New Beginnings Children's Center. Interns live in our mission housing with private/semi private rooms and a shared kitchen. Interns may choose to cook their own food or they can eat from the main kitchen with the children.

Cost:  1st month $1,000, each month after that $500 each. Your first month includes ground travel to and from New Beginnings from Nairobi Airport. Price also includes your food and lodging at New Beginnings Children's Center. No other transportation or expenses are covered in this cost, anything else is your responsibility. This cost does not include airfare or your visa.

How to get started?

Step One:  Fill out our Intern Application - please contact us for an application.

Step Two:  Consider how you will raise your funding, if needed. Once your application is approved, you will be given an account number for donations to be made to. Most interns and missionaries have a support base here in the USA who regularly pray for them and contribute to their accounts to cover their living expenses.

Step Three:  Get ready to GO!!

Long-term Mission Opportunities

We have openings for those who are called to serve the Lord for an extended time at New Beginnings Children's Center. As a full-time missionary you will work side-by-side with our staff in Kenya. Often you will work to help train the staff to better equip them to do their job at New Beginnings. There are many job opportunities available for people of many different gifts and talents. Full-time missionaries stay for 3 months or longer, often on a rotating basis.

Cost:  Full-time missionaries are expected to have $500 per month per person to cover their living expenses. This amount will cover your room and board plus living expenses for you at the center. You will be responsible for handling your own food and any transportation in Kenya. Missionaries live in our missionary housing on the beautiful, secure compound of New Beginnings. Cost does not include airfare or transportation within Kenya. It does not include the cost of your visa.  If couples or families are going the cost per person would be less.

If you want more information to go as a full-time missionary, contact our office. This just might be your opportunity to GO out and serve in the world.
