Intern Housing Renovation

1 Peter 4:10  Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.

Thanks Be to God and to His Faithful Servants

God continually blesses the ministry of The Gathering Place. We give thanks to Him and to the hundreds of faithful servants who shared His grace with us by praying, volunteering, and contributing funding and donated items to renovate and furnish two homes to house our college interns. These homes, available for a four-year period through a gift arrangement from the Stroud family, will help us generate savings on housing costs allowing The GP to reallocate these funds back into direct ministry services. 

191 individuals contributed 1,732 volunteer hours

$105,288 donated in labor, building supplies, & furnishings

How Do the Interns Serve? 

The Gathering Place College Internship program offers a unique professional development experience providing full-time paid internships open to college students and recent college graduates between the ages of 18-25.  The summer internship program is implemented over a 10-week period (approximately May 20th-August 2nd) with 13 students and 10 students during the rest of the year. The college interns living in these two renovated homes will primarily focus on expanding the Converge program on the campus of College of Coastal GA. The summer interns will also support the Main Events serving approximately 1000 high school students per week during the summer months. 

Housing Opportunities Available: Help Us Spread the Word!

Housing is available for college students at our newly renovated houses. For more information and applications, please contact Madhur Dey, Director of College Ministry, at madhur@thegp.org, 912-264-3474, or apply online http://thegp.org/internships/resident-internship-direct/
