The following is an outline of the basics of what JMM Summer Interns will be involved
*serving as a small group Bible study leader
*evangelism with the 9-16 year-olds
*playing games (especially basketball) with the kids
*serving on the summer leadership team
*leading VBS-type activities with elementary and middle school-aged kids
*hanging out with the kids as they play various games at the ROC center. This provides opportunities to get to know the kids and hopefully share the gospel with them.
*distribution of humanitarian aid and literature to orphanages, hospitals, homes for abused kids and kids with alcoholic parents, prisons, summer camps
*serving alongside local churches and existing ministries
*sharing the gospel with the children and their caregivers through interpreters, especially using his life story and gospel bead bracelets
Personal Growth and Training:
All of the students will have wonderful opportunities to:
All interns will have a place of service within the Josh McDowell Ministry headquarters. Their arenas of service will, as much as possible, be good fits for the students so they can use existing skills and develop new ones. There will be oversight by senior staff in their departments. This service will be 3 days a week, approx. 8:00-5:00
The students generally get Saturdays and Sundays off. The project leadership will schedule periodic fun times, like Texas Ranger baseball games, meals out, special events for the men or women.
The JMM Summer Project Internship team hopes this is helpful in understanding more of what we are trying to do for the students. Our main goal for them is to help prepare them for the next phase of life/ministry God has for them.
