PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Joining the ministry team at MCH will immerse you in urban ministry in the fastest growing metropolitan area in the US. You will form friendships with our under-resourced neighbors of all ages through food pantries; clothing closets, clubs for each age, Bible Studies & Evangelistic outreaches.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

You will serve in an inner city setting, leading clubs for children and youth, providing food and clothing, helping with a senior adult ministry, serving the homeless and making home visits. Sorting clothes, unloading food trucks, stocking shelves, and doing yard work are other potential ways to serve our community. You may also lead visiting youth and adult volunteer groups in their mission trips and represent us at partner churches. As you are challenged in numerous ways, you will develop as a leader and a disciple and see your vision, heart, and skills for missions grow exponentially which will equip you for an unending missional lifestyle.

SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

At the beginning of the internships, we will provide several days of orientation, which includes the Scriptural basis for our ministry. Each student will also have a staff mentor who will meet with them weekly to pray and discuss the assigned Biblical passages. Application of the weekly Bible passages will be emphasized each day in their centers. They will also have opportunities to grow spiritually as they meditate on the Scriptural passages they will be teaching in the Bible clubs for the various ages.
