Internship Connection Program

Internships can be a great way to gain hands-on experiential learning within missions. Rather than have our own internship program, we have recognized it is wise to partner with those who have the resources and understanding to best equip and train you. We see our role as one to help bring discernment to your call, connect you with trusted organizations and to walk with you throughout the process.  Click on the links below to learn more about our partners' internship program, then contact us and let's talk more about them!
