Applications for summer 2018 are currently closed. Check back in August for information about serving with us in summer 2019.
This internship is specifically geared towards European interns. You will be organizing and leading evangelistic “European camps" for high school and university-age students. Summer camps are a vital tool in bringing the gospel to the youth in a relevant and relaxed environment.
The first month of the internship includes: a week of training in Czech Republic, visiting schools and traveling to different youth groups in Ukraine to promote and prepare for camps. In addition, you will participate in a variety of local youth ministry activities. At camp you will work with European short-term teams and Ukrainian leaders in various aspects. For example: workshops, relationship building, evening program, giving testimonies and connecting youth to the local church.
Throughout the summer you will experience a balance of evangelism, discipleship and leadership training of Ukrainian students and youth leaders. This is a high-energy ministry that requires a love for students. Be prepared for a busy and stretching schedule that will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!
