Interested in being an apprentice?

 

apprenticeship ad sept 2015

If the advertisement above excites you rather than putting you off, then you will be pleased to know that every year iServe Africa recruits a group of apprentices and places them in apprenticeship opportunities in local churches, Christian schools or other Christian community organisations. The dream of iServe Africa is that many gifted and godly men and women would be identified, recruited, trained and sent out to handle the gospel of Jesus Christ faithfully, confidently, clearly and relevantly in Africa and beyond.

Basic requirements:

  • Single man or woman between 21 and 28 years of age.
  • Christian with living faith.
  • Graduating from university with a degree in any subject.
  • Keen to serve and grow.

There are two apprenticeship intakes in the year:

  1. Interviews in May/June, induction in June, training at the end of August ready for start at the beginning of September, finishing the following August.
  2. Interviews in October/November, induction in November, training in December ready for start at the beginning of January for a calendar year of service.

When you are ready to make an application, please download the relevant form:

Applications will only be accepted in soft format (Microsoft Word by email). Please remember to enclose in your email all the necessary attachments indicated at the end of the application form. If you need more information or help filling the form, please contact us.

    • Thank you for this Phinehas. Indeed the iServe Africa apprenticeship programme is for single fresh graduates. For a number of reasons it is not so appropriate for married people (e.g. it involves placing people all over Kenya, accommodation is often small, stipend is small, the programme requires dedicated focus). A married person is already busy serving (e.g. their wife) and of course married couples can be involved with gospel ministry and mission in various ways. In relation to iServe Africa, we have church training courses (e.g. Utumishi Course) which are very much open to all and also regular prayer meetings (e.g. First Priority on the first Sunday afternoon of each month) to which families are very welcome. If you would like to meet with us and talk about other ways to be involved you would be very welcome.

    • Thanks for your interest Helen. Why not come along to the First Priority prayer meeting this Sunday (3rd) at the iServe Africa offices, Zambezi, from 3.30pm if you can make it. Would be a good opportunity to find out more about iServe.

    • As it says at the bottom of the application form we would desire that you attach scans of your academic certificates, ID card and a passport size photo. But the key things to send us are a) the application form and b) the testimony of your faith journey. You can bring the certificates with you when you are invited to interview.
