Serve short-term with Wycliffe Singapore
...looking to take a gap year?
...looking to take a sabbatical or a career break?
Experience greater dependence on the Lord as you rely on him to provide for you as he takes you out of your comfort zone.
Experience life in a new culture and make a start on learning a new language.
Learn and grow as you interact with current missionaries.
Be challenged as you see the faith, passion and determination of workers on the field to finish translating the Bible into their own language
Up to 4 weeks:
1-2 week trips can be arranged to visit a current project, interact with both Wycliffe missionaries and mother-tongue translators themselves and to observe translation and consultant checking processes in real life.
1 month to 1 year:
Consider investing a longer period of time into a project. This will also give you a greater opportunity to really immerse yourself into another culture, begin to learn a new language and make a contribution through becoming part of a team.
You may not be a linguist or a translator, but there are many ways that your skills can be put to use in support of a translation project. A translation project requires managers, administrators, IT specialists, educators and many more people. You can support the work of Bible translation by:
Providing English tuition or workshops in basic computer skills to translators
Assisting with homeschooling of long-term members' children
Providing educational workshops on basic healthcare
Providing administrative support and managerial support to understaffed projects
Editing video and audio media
INTERNSHIP & VOLUNTEERING
If you’re looking for some work experience or just want to give time to serve the Lord in a mission agency, we welcome you to join us!
You can serve as an intern from one month to a year. Whether as a support worker or in the field, we’re sure that God will speak to you through that experience. Or you could do voluntary service on a regular or ad hoc basis.
Here’s what some of our past and current interns and volunteers have to say:
I’ve gained better insight into God’s work through the missionaries. I respect them for their selfless dedication. It’s my honour to share in a tiny part of their work!
Using my God-given gifts to serve people groups that do not have God's Word in their mother tongue is a rewarding experience in my faith journey.
My time at Wycliffe has made me realise how much time Bible translators take to translate God's Word into a language that has no Bible. I hope more people will respond to God's call and take up Bible translation.
