Gain valuable life skills and experience while taking part in ministry as you work alongside gifted leaders who love teaching others how to do what they do.
Join a strong network of interns who are all trying to find their passion, their place, and the ministry God is calling them to!

For students without family in the area, we can provide a Host Family for you to stay with. Host homes are generous volunteers who want to provide a home away from home for you. They are not expected to provide meals or transportation.
