Female Volunteer Program

The 1Hope Volunteer Program exists to provide godly ladies with an intensive season of service and discipleship, within the context of the local church, for the purpose of God-glorifying, Spirit-wrought conformity to the image of Christ.


Interns must be ladies* who are:

  • committed followers of Jesus Christ
  • progressively growing in Christlikeness/godliness
  • bearing fruit for God’s glory
  • actively serving in their local church, which fully supports their desire to come serve with us
  • servant-hearted
  • mature
  • flexible
  • teachable
  • able to communicate fluently in English (speaking, reading, and writing)
  • at least 18 years old upon arrival in South Africa
  • in possession of all required paperwork upon arrival in South Africa (passport, visa, etc.)
  • able to fully fund their own expenses (to, from, and within South Africa)
  • ideally, able to commit to serving with us for about 3 months


Healthy, hard-working adult saints of any age are welcome to apply. Ladies who come serve with us are singles/widows without children in the home. Since 2012, we’ve enjoyed volunteers from sister churches in Germany, Malawi, South Africa, Switzerland, and the United States.


If you’d like more information, you can view our Prospective Internship Information Lookbook. If you’d like to apply or have questions for the Volunteer Director, please contact her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Soli Deo Gloria!
