Discovery Ministries- Summer Internship

Discovery Ministries exists to enable individuals and groups to grow to be like Jesus through challenge and recreation.

Interns become teachers here, and teachers must practice what they teach by enduring their own intense experiences. Since they are instructors-in-training, interns will be charged with pushing themselves and participants towards spiritual, mental and physical growth. 

Our internships are rich learning experiences, full of variety. Interns will develop hard skills related to outdoor leadership including (rock climbing, canoeing, caving, challenge course facilitation, group initiatives, etc.) and soft skills related to group dynamics. In addition, interns will join the staff in promoting DM's mission and physical maintenance. This includes cleaning bathrooms, repairing buildings, public-relations projects and more. Our foremost aim is for interns to become dynamic, Christian leaders in their future endeavors.

Summer Internship Dates: May 20, 2018 – August 11, 2018

Application Deadline: April 1, 2018
