COME AND SERVE WITH US!
SERVE Nazareth is a volunteer ministry based in Nazareth, Israel. We connect Christian volunteers with local ministries in Jesus' hometown.
Mark 10: 45 “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
The 3 month internship has a dual focus: first to grow the Kingdom of God in Nazareth through your service and our second focus is to grow the Kingdom of God within you. Our hope is that interns leave Nazareth not only having made a difference in the community, but also impassioned to serve the Lord with all they have.
The SERVE Nazareth Associate programme is a flexible 1 - 6 month prorgamme designed to fit into any schedule. Associates are similar to interns with the exception that they will be primarily self guided. This programme is ideal for retirees or married couples.
Group SERVE is the branch of our ministry that focuses on facilitating Christian groups to come and serve in Nazareth. SERVE Nazareth can assist you in whatever type of ministry project your group wants. Whether it is building projects, children's camps, prayer walking or relational ministry we can help your group come and serve.
SERVE NAZARETH VISION
The vision of the SERVE Nazareth programme is to glorify God by bringing Christians from around the world together in service, to encourage the body of Christ in Nazareth and equip people for future ministry.
WHO IS SERVE NAZARETH FOR?
The aim of SERVE Nazareth is to grow our interns into mighty men and women of God.
All prospective interns should be devoted followers of Christ who are over age 18. They should have a desire to SERVE abroad and a servant heart.
The SERVE Nazareth Associate programme is for devoted Christians beyond college age, who have hearts for service. It is preferred that applicants have previous cross cultural ministry experience, but it is not essential.
With our internship, associate and group opportunities, we have something for everyone!
Our internship is available three times each year, during the summer (June to August), winter (January to March) and autumn (September to November).
Associates can choose their time from 1 - 6 months, year round and groups should contact us for booking availability.
Internship applications close 2 months before arrival in Nazareth, so on 25th March, 1 November and 1 July.
Associate applications must also be submitted at least 2 months before the intended arrival.
Groups need to send in their applications at least 3 months before their intended arrival. Early applications are always welcome!
If you have any questions to ask please contact SERVE Nazareth Administration at [email protected] We look forward to hearing from you!
Your schedule is based around 2 placements, each for two days per week. In addition to this, we have chapel services and assign each volunteer to a church placement one evening a week.
The last day is spent in teaching and spiritual development for our volunteers, pouring into them as they give out to others in service.
You will live on the Nazareth Hospital campus. Our apartments are split for male and female participants, and are spacious with common rooms available.
The Hospital is a few minutes walk from the town centre of Nazareth and the historic old city. You will soon become integrated into the local culture as part of your SERVE Nazareth experience!
