Instructions for Mission Interact College Intern Application:
This is a paid position. But the pay is nominal and fleeting. What you take away from Mission Interact is huge and permanent. If you want to be part of Mission Interact and see lives changed through Christ, then yours will be also. For all the love and sweat and leadership, we’ll make a donation to your college fund in amount of $230.
These are first come, first/best qualified positions. Understand that not everyone who submits will be chosen and there are a limited number of positions.
If you are unable to attend the mandatory training on Saturday, July 15, then please do not apply.
Hey, realize that this application is the first step. We will respond with instructions on how to submit references and additional information we'll need to consider your application.
Mission Interact doesn't happen anywhere else! By design, it's a local opportunity for young Christians from many different denominations to come together to become friends, love on their own community, and become aware of those around them who are fellow Believers in the salvation that Jesus Christ alone offers to us all. ... all in hopes that Ecclesiastes 4:12 can be born out in their lives. Those involved in MI stand behind Christ's prayer in John 17:21 for this generation "... that they may be one... that the world may know that you sent Me." MI is not directed or driven by a single church, though many different churches share the vision and partner through leading worship, offering their facilities and vehicles, and encouraging their students and parents.
Since 2008, MI has been organized and lead by a few dedicated families who pour two weeks of their vacation each year into making these opportunities for Christian students a possibility. It is no small task. On average each year, 18 home recipe meals are prepared for 200+ students and 100 adults; 7 buses and vans are on the road four times daily to service projects and worship; equipment and donated materials are delivered and used up every day; hot lunches are delivered to 15 different sites each day; 25 community projects and a vbs camp are solicited and organized; 7 different church worship teams collaborate and 7 different pastors speak; college students complete applications and provide references and testimonies with the hope to become mentors for middle and high students; background screenings are conducted on volunteers and leaders; insurances are paid; monthly planning meetings held; and prayers and hope undergird it all. Students from 20 different churches and 35 different schools live together on mission in their own Jerusalem.
We are excited that the Spirit is moving you towards working with Mission Interact. To start the application process, please register here and then follow the instructions on the email you will receive after completing your online application. Also, be aware that we perform a background screening on all our leaders.
The following is just a sample of the mission you will engage in 24/7 for 7 days!
OVERNIGHTCOUNSELORS (affectionately dubbed 'zombies' that govern Evening Flow & Fun): Each night we'll return to Base Camp with up to 300 wound up students for games, wind down, and crash time. We need shepherds to get them corralled to the showers, pointed to dinner, and packaged out to the evening worship. After worship, we'll have some recreation and hang time. Sunday through Friday nights. OVERNIGHT - Boys and girls will be separate and we need steady adult influence to make sure they catch their zzzzzz's and the doors stay closed. Need help from 7pm-7am, or variations thereof.
SERVE TRACKS: The meat of the mission where we need adult leaders for up to 30 groups of students. Hand to Hand (food bank, care packages, etc); Shoulder to Shoulder (paint, yard, construction, sport camp); Heart to Heart (loving them at orphanages, assisted living, vbs); Spirit to Spirit (prayer warriors on the road); Soul to Soul (share how much Jesus loves 'em). Need help Sunday night through Friday. Any or all days. Skills and talents a plus to help the kids have more impact.
SPOTLIGHT! - Everyone will be watching how you represent Christ. You will be the adult leadership face of MI, at an age that you will be uniquely able to mentor and model for younger students. It's a big responsibility! We all want to point to Christ, not ourselves.
