El Paso, Texas
Border Fellows is a ten month intensive work and service internship on the U.S./Mexico border that challenges recent college graduates to integrate their vocation with God's heart for outreach, justice and reconciliation. Interns will not only gain experience in their field of study, but will be challenged to realize their God-given gifts and utilize them to serve a wide range of people, including the poor and marginalized in downtown El Paso, the staff at Ciudad Nueva and the community at St. Clements Church. The suburban-urban partnership, combined with the cross-cultural element, makes this a unique opportunity!
Interns will work in their professional field sixteen hours a week and will spend their remaining time serving with Ciudad Nueva Community Outreach and St. Clement's Church. They will also engage in educational training focused on integrating faith and vocation with ministry outreach aimed at the specific needs of the border region.
Interns will become rich in experience, but more importantly, rich in heart knowledge of God's desires. They will be better equipped to further God's kingdom in their future mission fields.
