Detroit Summer Outreach

For two months college age men and women (approx. 18-25yrs.) live and serve in Detroit, while receiving Christian formation to prepare them for a life of mission.

Interns give two months of their summer to intense discipleship through: living a common life together (men and women separate), sacrificing certain luxuries, and receiving training in youth work and urban issues.

While leading, supervising, and mentoring work crews in the StreetTeam Leadership Program, interns play a formative role in the lives of high school age youth from the city. Interns will also have opportunity to serve with Bezalel Project, our academic, arts, and leadership training program for students in grades 3-8.

These two months are about young men and women choosing to radically seek after the fullness of what God has for them and learning to live a life poured out on mission for Christ.
