OneWay is looking for young adults to serve this summer
OneWay is looking for dozens of young adults to use their gifts and talents in Kingdom-advancing work with us this summer.
“If you place a single piece of wood on a fire, it will go out quickly,” said Hannah Thompson, director of OneWay’s Young Adult ministry, “But if you put multiple pieces together that are on fire, all of a sudden you’ve got a bonfire. That's what the summer feels like.”
Thompson hopes that this fire will inspire and activate young people for a greater purpose. OneWay’s summer internships are designed to help students and young adults grow in their professional skills, fall more deeply in love with Jesus, and discover how He longs to use their lives for His glory.
“My internship with OneWay has pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me grow in my confidence in my identity in Christ as well as my professional skills,” said Claire Nyberg, a social media resident who started last summer. “The community of staff and young adults have encouraged, challenged and cheered me on.”
Last summer, 25 young people joined OneWay for 10 weeks of work experience, community, and discipleship. The interns spent their days developing their skills in video editing, audio production, communications, administration and more. As a result of their hard work, Prayercast was able to update 100 videos that rally prayer for the lost all over the world.
This summer, OneWay is looking to expand its reach to even more interns to serve the Kingdom of God. This includes a modified version of the internship program for high-school students. Students and young adults of all skills and abilities are encouraged to apply.
“We need people for all sorts of things creative but also anybody who has a willingness and a desire to serve and expand their skills,” Thompson said. “Anyone who wants to learn and grow in a Christian community is qualified for the job.”
However, professional experience is just one aspect of a OneWay internship. Thompson shared that one of her favorite aspects of the summer is the intense energy and zeal the interns bring into the OneWay ministry center. This energy not only encourages the interns but the staff and OneWay community as well.
“During my time at OneWay, I have seen and felt a restoration in my love and passion for Jesus,” says Anna Rodman, a 2023 studio intern. “I am so much more joy-filled, compassionate, and excited about life because this community encourages me to prioritize the most important and fulfilling things in life — a relationship with God, his people and his Word.”
Please pray for the Young Adult team and our incoming interns as they seek to follow God’s will and serve Him this summer.
