College Summer Internship

Experience God, Impact Lives, Grow Exponentially

Our summer college internship program offers a life transforming experience for leadership development & spiritual growth. The college interns get an opportunity to do student ministry with our local high schools students in our beautiful Golden Isles Community (St. Simons Island/Brunswick). While serving as an intern, college students will be trained & equipped by Christian leaders that make up our genuine Christ centered community

This full-time paid internship is open to college students and recent college graduates between the ages of 18-25. If you are a local student wanting to apply for the college internship, you must have completed 1 year of college before applying. The duration of the internship will be from May 16th – August 2nd, 2017.

Here is what some former college interns had to say about their experience:

“This summer I was able to grow and practically put what I have been learning God and challenge into play. I now have a much stronger confidence in the constant and powerful nature of God which has lead to my hope really being rooted in Him rather than my knowledge of Him.” Erin, College Intern, Summer 2014 & 2015

“This summer has shown that I can be who God created me to be and be comfortable in knowing that.” – Morgan, College Intern, Summer 2015

As a student ministry in the beautiful Golden Isles area (located an hour between of Savannah and Jacksonville) you can expect the following:

  • TONS of teenagers eager to get to know you and spend time with you.
  • BEAUTIFUL beaches and many great things to do in the area.
  • GREAT community of churches who have come together to support and invest in you!
  • LIFE LONG RELATIONSHIPS TO DEVELOP with the kids you work with, their families, and our really special community down here!
  • LIFE LONG FRIENDSHIPS TO DEVELOP and the other team of college interns you’ll be working with and living with all summer!!!
