2022 Missionary Internship Program

June 3rd-August 12th in Houston, TX

The missionary internship program is the best way to get a taste of domestic missionary life! If you have a call for serving others and God has placed a desire in you for living radically for the Gospel, this internship is something you should discern. We believe that when God calls people to mission, it’s because He seeks to transform their hearts and lives in a way only mission can accomplish. Over the course of this summer internship, missionaries will be formed, challenged, and pushed beyond their perceived limits to do great things for teens on the margins.
