- A suitable desk, office space and Internet access.
- Time and assistance to help the intern complete academic studies
- Opportunities for the intern to develop their existing knowledge, skills and abilities.
- A variety of relevant, meaningful and practical ministry experiences and tasks.
- Opportunities to experience Australia and its culture.
Interns will be expected to:
