To raise up Jesus' disciples to the mission field for the end-time harvest.
Who We Are
The Harvest Internship is a 10-month, full immersion, evangelistic training in the wild African frontiers. A powerful launchpad to soul-winning ministry! Not for the faint-at-heart, but for those passionate about soul-winning and have a unique yearning to leave the ordinary, civilian-life behind and make Jesus's great commission, their mission! Our purpose is simple: To equip and launch Jesus disciples to the mission field for the end-time harvest.
You will bunk at our dorms and live among the Massai and Gussi peoples at the SOS base in Kilgoris Kenya, right on the border of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Our interns will cross many borders traveling from nation to nation with our festival team, mobilizing cities for the Gospel, learning in makeshift classrooms, working side-by-side with our leaders, and preaching in every venue imaginable. You don't need to have much experience, we will give you that. We do need to know that you are called to be an evangelist.
From foundational classroom time to powerful hands-on training in a multicultural context, interns have a unique opportunity to walk into the nucleus of God's purpose for their lives. It will be an adventure of a lifetime that will add thousands to the Book of Life.
Jesus asked us to pray in Matthew 9, "Ask the Lord of the Harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." The question is: Are you the worker? The harvest field is waiting for you and The Harvest Internship might be your bridge to the field!
RELEVANT BIBLICAL CLASSESDuring the SOS Mission Bible School season of your internship, you will receive a powerful mix of sound biblical teaching to build a firm foundation and a strong inner life where you can be led by the Holy Spirit.
During the 10 months you will have over 100 hours of evangelism-focused training. Evangelists, ministry leaders, department heads, missionaries, and the like will take time to invest in you, answer questions, and lead hands-on training experiences.
IN-ACTION MINISTRY EXPERIENCE
You will cross many African frontiers with our evangelistic convoy, rub shoulders with every department head, preach in many different spaces. You will learn by doing the work of an evangelist and be coached in the entire process.
Now that you are fully immersed in evangelism, in the mission field, and you have a vast amounts of knowledge and experience, where do you go from here? We will facilitate and equip you for your next move by giving you the training as well as open doors in many departments in SOS. If that's not enough, you can graduate being credentialed as an official minister of the Gospel, recognized in every continent.
Our SOS Africa Headquarters is in Kilgoris, Kenya. Kilgoris is where our Apostolic Center is located as well as the leadership academy, the SOS Kilgoris Church, and The Harvest Internship base, where you will bunk with like-minded people.
The apostolic base leader in Kilgoris is Evangelist Samuel Strandberg with his wife Gabrielle and two children. Everything in Kilgoris is under Samuel's leadership. The SOS Kilgoris Church pastor, Joseph Kiptek, is an old Massai tribe leader who gave his life to Jesus over 20 years ago after hearing Evangelist Johannes preach in his village.
You will learn, live, eat, laugh, pray, preach, work, and worship with them and their families as well as other missionaries from our team living in Kilgoris. You will live in our Africa standard dorms, eat well, and have hot showers when you return home. You will have classroom time and in-action training while traveling across African countries, reaching unreached people groups, preaching from a variety of platforms, rubbing-shoulders with those doing the work you dream about, and live-out your dream with them. Oh, your backyard is Massai Mara, one of the wildest game reserves on the planet. It will be an adventure of a lifetime that will give eternal life to thousands.
