Internships & Residencies

htIMG_3867.jpeg

So many young people have hearts full of love for Christ, passion for the Great Commission, and unique dreams about how to use their specific gifts in the Kingdom. Too often, though, they have no practical idea where to start. Far too many passionate and skilled young people are sitting on the sidelines simply waiting to be activated, even though Jesus himself said, "the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few."

 

 That's why we're here. Our heart is for you: the wide-eyed & full-hearted, those longing to know and fall more deeply in love with Jesus and discover how He longs to use your whole life for His glory here and among the nations.

 

“The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it,” (1 Thes. 5:24).

 

We just want to be a part of it.

TESTIMONIALS

"Honestly, the most meaningful interactions have been outside of normal hours, staying late to talk with someone... laughing, getting to know people on a deeper level."
