Internationally If you are interested in an international internship, our team will work with you to see if your skills and passion fit any of the needs our missionaries have on the field. We do not keep a list of international needs published on our website. Instead, we work directly with you and our missionaries on a case-by-case basis to give you a productive role in our ministry in a place where you’ll be an asset to the work overseas.

Successful candidates display a love for the Word of God, and for making it accessible to people without access to it in the language of their hearts. We also expect students who can demonstrate high quality work and a drive toward excellence. They must be able to demonstrate how their area of expertise relates to increasing direct involvement in the work of Bible translation. Interns must be able to work well in a team—but also need to be self-directed. An ability to thrive in ambiguity will help, too. Interns are fully part of cultural life at LBT, and are included in all company-wide activities. Interns are assigned mentors, who provide guidance and oversight.
