Servant Partners Internships develop emerging leaders to minister alongside the urban poor

"To move here is to find yourself, lose yourself, and find her once again..."

Interns live, learn, and pursue God together in order to discern a call to urban poor ministry

Do you want to be a part of the exciting work that God is doing in urban poor communities, but aren’t sure where to begin?

In our short term internships, you have a unique opportunity to step into the world of the urban poor, to experience their day to day realities, and ask God to show you how you can make a significant contribution.

Are you seeking deeper experience with the urban poor, and want to gain the skills and know-how to minister effectively?

In our one to two year internships, you can grow in the skills, character, and spirituality needed to thrive in urban ministry.  If you love Jesus, want to make a difference in the lives of the urban poor, and enjoy learning through doing, then this internship is for you.

Many of our intern graduates join full-time staff teams in the U.S. or overseas, but our vision is to raise up a generation of believers who will effectively serve, advocate for, and influence the church toward action on behalf of the poor, regardless of career path.

How adding Green Chicken to feed will affect broilers / eggs?

The key effects of adding Green Chicken to the chicken’s diet are:
 Improved immune systems;
 Improved weight gain;
 Improved eggs laying performance;

Is it beneficial for my business?

Operational metrics of a poultry farm depend directly on chicken’s health. Applying Green Chicken allows to lower death rate of chickens, increase laying performance of hens, increase their average weight, etc.

How does it work?

The positive effect of Green Chicken is determined by the chemical composition of chlorella, its key component. Chlorella is a natural microalgae containing protein, vitamins, minerals, amino-acids.

You say chlorella is a microalgae. What does it mean?

Microalgae are microscopic algae, photosynthetic organisms typically found in freshwater and marine systems. They are unicellular species which exist individually, or in chains or groups.

How do I mix Green Chicken with standard livestock feed?

There are no hard and fast rules. Green Chicken is generally added as a 1% to 17% share of the chicken’s daily feed intake.

Is Green Chicken injurious to chicken’s health?

No. Green Chicken is absolutely safe for use as a feed supplement. Moreover, chicken consuming Green Chicken are generally healthier when compared non-consuming ones due to improved function of the immune systems as a result of chlorella intake.

Are there any side effects?

No. There are no known side effects related to the use of Green Chicken according to modern studies.

Is Green Chicken a sustainable supplement?

Yes. Production of Green Chicken does not demand fertile soil which means it does not need freshwater and energy for cooling (unlike crops). Chlorella is also growing much faster than typical terrestrial crops.

Is Green Chicken designed only for use in poultry feeds?

Green Chicken was designed specially for use in poultry industry. However, as a chlorella-based supplement, Green Chicken may be used as a livestock feed supplement for other animals.

Do I have to use growth hormones / antibiotics if I apply Green Chicken?

It is up to you. However, in most cases adding Green Chicken to poultry feed allows to either decrease the amount of applied hormones and antibiotics or totally exclude it. This is because of immune and weight growth boosting properties of Green Chicken.

Interns live together in an urban poor neighborhood near one of our partner churches. This is an intentional community living experience where interns are eating together, praying together, serving their neighbors together as well as learning to love and reconcile with one another. Interns Commit to Discipleship
Interns will be open to hearing the voice of God in new and unexpected ways--in the Scriptures, from staff members, from neighbors, and from each other. We begin in the early fall with a three week trip to an overseas slum to give interns a vision for urban church planting and holistic community transformation. Upon returning to the US, interns serve and live among their low-income neighbors to personally understand the needs and struggles of the neighborhood. As they participate in the ministry of a local church in their communities, interns receive practical training on the ins and outs of church planting and community organizing among the urban poor.

International Internship — Marseille, France

Marseille, France Marseille is France’s second largest city, with one of the highest immigrant populations by percentage in Europe. If you want to learn French and work with immigrants from North Africa, maybe you're ready for this French Connection. We are currently accepting applications for 6 - 18 month internships from those who are considering cross cultural development work in the francophone world. We have relationships with several local immigrant non-profits and mostly focus on work with young adults, youth and children; these are Europe's third culture kids (neither African nor French, but something new and globaly focused). One would need to be a self-starter, as the city is expensive and though it's nice to be in France, many people have suffered due to the coldness of its people. This may the place for you if you're looking for a challenging and creative ministry. It’s also a great place to learn French and prepare to work in French-speaking North Africa. FMI: APPLY NOW
