Serve as a Baby Home Intern:

Baby Home interns serve full-time as assistant caregivers in Muphamuzi Baby Home. They are not paid, and must raise ministry support in order to serve in this role (this is a huge help in reducing the running costs of the Baby Home!). Interns are immersed in the life of Living Hope Church during their time serving with the Baby Home, and discipleship is a key component of the internship. If you would like more information about these internships, please contact the Director of Interns, Claire Scheideman, at
