Communications in Hungary

Job Overview:

Use your passion for media and communications for God’s glory! If you have a couple spare weeks or a few months in the summer, you can fill a vital need for our OM team in Hungary: Sharing the stories of what God is doing and helping more people hear the Gospel while also building your portfolio and experiencing cross-cultural missions. Whether you love video and film, journalistic writing, graphic design in print or web, photography, or social media, we can customize an internship with specific projects that allow you to use your gifts for a greater purpose. You might cover a Christian rock band’s tour around Hungary or a youth English or sports camp through written and visual content and social media. Or maybe you can help us redesign a website for our baseball ministry or design a print newsletter. Whatever your specific gifts and passions, we can work with you to fill a special need and make a meaningful difference.

Responsibilities and Duties:

  • Depending upon your specific gifts and projects, you might be traveling with an outreach, or you might be working in our team office regularly. In the latter case, you could expect to spend weekday mornings working on projects in our office (while enjoying a constant supply of coffee) and taking part in our weekly prayer meeting and team devotions. You might have a few hours off in the afternoons for lunch, and then in the evenings possibly cover or help out with a ministry activity.

Learning Outcomes:

  • You will receive orientation and cultural training upon arrival in Hungary and work closely with our field communications facilitator as a guide.

  • Depending on your commitment time, you can also expect a regular meeting with a mentor to continue helping you adjust to the culture and invest in you spiritually.
