What is The Exchange?
The Exchange is an Internship Programme wherein you give a year of your life to serve in the local church. The Exchange is not a gap year, but rather a year to invest in personal development, leadership development, character development and discover God’s purpose for your life. We believe the best leaders in society should be developed through the local church and The Exchange is an opportunity for this development to take place. On The Exchange, you will be stretched, equipped, and empowered for everyday life, and you will deepen your relationship with God. The Exchange will change how you see your world and your future, and it will help you to become well-equipped, ready to tackle anything that comes your way.
Who is The Exchange for?
The Exchange is for anyone who has just matriculated, finished studying or wants to take a gap year and would like to grow themselves. Whether you know what you want to do career-wise or not, The Exchange is a great next step for anyone wanting to develop, equip, stretch, or challenge themselves, as it is geared towards three key areas: Leadership Development, Theological Development, and Personal Development.
Here are just some of the ways we plan to develop you in these three areas:
– LEADERSHIP – Weekly staff meetings, staff mentors, working through leadership books
– THEOLOGICAL – TheosU subscription, working through Unlocking the Bible, Bible Studies
– PERSONAL – Wholeness Course, Freedom Course, Financial Peace Course
And much much more…
What would my year look like?
The Exchange will begin on 16 January 2023, and it will end on 10 December 2023.
In a normal week, you will work four days of the week and Sunday; and you will have a Saturday, as well as one weekday off. Working hours on weekdays are 8am-4pm.
You will be able to take one Sunday off per term, and you will have one allocated week off in the middle of the year for leave.
You will be allocated to a specific department, and throughout the year you will be given responsibility in that department to help it (and you) flourish.
The different departments you could be involved in are: Schools, Youth, Kids Church, Media & Production, Church Administration, Worship, Events Planning, etc.
What is the cost?
The cost for The Exchange is R1000/month for 10 months (Feb-Nov).
A more detailed cost breakdown will be given at the Open Night – but the cost covers everything an Exchanger might be involved in for the year (Lesotho Mission trip, conferences & events, resources, termly outings, etc.) Essentially, all of the money goes back to you!
