1 Internship, Now with 3 Options:

Campus, International Students and Headquarters

How are the options similar?

  • Growing in your faith and the grace of Jesus as you tackle God-given opportunities to serve others

  • Living life with other student interns and staff

  • Doing a weekly in-depth Bible study & attending campus fellowship events

  • Investing deeply in each other and students while DM Staff pour into you

What's Different?

  • Campus Interns spend most of their time on campus, reaching out to students

  • Headquarters Interns spend about 2/3 of their time in the DM office, using their skills to help the ministry

  • 2019 will add a new component: International Campus Internship. It will follow closely what campus interns do, but with a focus on welcoming the hundreds of international students that arrive in the summer.

Support Raising

You might be thinking, I could see myself doing an internship with DiscipleMakers, but there is no way I'm raising support!"  You are not the first to feel this way.  By God's grace, all past prospective interns met the minimum goal.  If God wants you here, He will meet all your needs.
