Intern Opportunities

Interning for a summer in the Dominican Republic with Manna Global Ministries may be one of the most incredible experiences of your life.



Plug into our ministries, meet people from around the world, experience a new culture, and learn more about how missions work in a foreign country. Our internship is one of the most life-changing experiences you will ever have, and we hope you will consider joining us for a summer of spiritual growth and service in the DR.

MannaDR Interns do personal fundraising for their intern experience. This allows them to get a feel for what fundraising for missions can be like and it encourages a strong support system stateside. Typically interns are asked to raise approximately $2,000 to cover airfare, enroute travel expenses, entry and exit visa fees, food allowances, housing, transportation, souvenirs, and an in-country travel break. This estimate is primarily dependent on airfare costs at the time of being accepted as a MannaDR Intern.


“As humans, our greatest desire is to find those who will love us as wholeheartedly as we love them. My time as an intern for Manna proved to me in the realest of ways that our longing for that kind of love can really only be fulfilled by God. I was given incredible opportunities to serve, laugh, grow, and express my love for others, and God blessed me by putting people in my life that have returned that love, His love, a thousand times over.”

-Jesse Buchanan, Summer 2017

"My time in the DR was far beyond explanation and the internship was an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. It changed my perspective of who God is and how He works through and in His people. Living in Bobita for a summer was so unbelievably transformative that even now I am still realizing the impact it had on my life."

-Travis Mack, Summer 2017

“My experience as an intern was very good. I was able to learn more about the people I worked with and I was able to grow closer to God through my relationships with those people. The DR is a very beautiful place where I always feel close to God. What I liked most about the summer were Community Days because the Dominicans hosting showed us such love. And because I really liked the food!”

-Widson Orelus, Summer 2017
