Intern Program

Transform Student Ministries’ Intern Program exists to train college-age students and young adults to ENGAGE in God’s Word through the inductive Bible study method. Our goal is for interns to return home and seek to build discipleship relationships with others that are centered on God’s Word. Our summer intern program reaches this goal by engaging in transformational discipleship while living in community with others.

In a span of 10 weeks, interns gain experience in the inductive study method using different Precept materials including, but not limited to:

  • • 40 Minute Studies
       These focused, self-contained studies guide you into God’s Word one topic at a time, 6 weeks at a time, with no homework.
  • • New Inductive Study Series
       These studies give a big picture perspective of a book of the Bible with only 15 minutes of homework a day.
  • • Precept Upon Precept
       These studies are an in-depth inductive study in which one studies chapter by chapter and verse by verse.

Along with these Precept materials, interns read and engage in discussion about discipleship, biblical community, and small group ministry.

Goals

During the 10 weeks of ENGAGE, interns will encounter time for reflection, living life in biblical community/fellowship, and a time to delight in the study and application of God’s Word. In addition to these, interns will be challenged by God’s Word and encouraged to grow deeper in their walk with the Lord and others. Each will return home with a greater confidence in their obedience to Christ, eager to serve the Church and desire to impact on others for the glory of God’s kingdom. Once interns return home, we commit to resource them to serve their churches faithfully and make disciples intentionally in the power of the Holy Spirit.

COST

We ask that interns raise $3500 in support much like a mission trip. This process gives others a chance to invest in their life and in God’s kingdom. We will come alongside each intern, and provide a personal online giving page as well as other advice, ideas and tips.

The $3500 interns raise covers the cost of lodging, study materials, meals and their pay.

PAYMENT

Interns will receive $2000 stipend for their work at our summer camps and for the program.
