- IF I'M INTERESTED WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
No. Acceptance into the program is at the discretion of Grenada 24-7 leadership. The purpose of the interview
process is to assess whether we feel there is a fit and match. That said, acceptance is not based on "mad awesome"
skills or a supposed "lifetime" of experience... but rather an open heart and willing spirit-- and of course availability.
#1... Fill out the initial application.
We will then contact you and have an introductory interview. Afterwards we will ask you to fill out
a more detailed application and then also have at least one more interview.
Simple answer: EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING!
Our goal is give you the experiences and teaching that you can draw from later, to succeed in the mission God calls you to.
Therefore, we want you to be a student in everything you do... whether you're leading worship, teaching a lesson, organizing
programs, hanging out with people in the village, helping a mission team or just having coffee with us in our kitchen.
No! Absolutely not! An internship is NOT a mission trip (just longer).
Most mission trips are non-stop, activity-heavy and you-focused. Your host wants to make sure you have an
awesome experience while also taking full advantage of your help while there. There's nothing necessarily wrong
with that, except that is NOT what your internship will be. This program is designed to equip you for success in
future ministry, along with having you experience what living full-time on the mission field is actually like. That said,
the dynamics of your stay will be very different than that of a short-term mission trip.
Ask Yourself: Do I want to live with a missionary family to learn what life on the mission field is really like? Do I have a
teachable humble spirit and want to have an experience that will prepare and equip me for future success in ministry?
If so, then you probably make a fit and match. However...
* WARNING *
If you're looking for your next spiritual adventure... If you expect non-stop outdoor activity... If you're expecting just to
hang out, chill and hit the beach under the pretense of "relational evangelism"-- this internship probably isn't for you.
There is no one set cost... however, you will need to raise money for the following areas:
Airfare: $900 -- $1200
Ground/Program Costs: $500/mth for (but not limited to) trip hosting and organization, curriculum and materials, ground
transportation, food and lodging, travel insurance... Estimate: Summer= $1000 -- $1500... Full Program= $3500 -- $4000
Personal Money: $??... It's up to you how much money you want to bring for souvenirs, snacks, gifts, extra bug spray, etc...
We determine success by judging 5 factors:
#1... Have you learned and acquired the skills to assimilate into a foreign culture?
#2... Have you learned and acquired the skills to live in unity and work in unity within our community and with other
pastors, churches, missionaries and organizations inter-denominationally?
#3... Have you cultivated a servant's heart? In other words, do you appreciate and pursue sacrificing for others?
#4... Generally speaking, are you in a better place spiritually (in your walk with God) than when you arrived?
#5... Has there been physical proof of the impartation of the Holy Spirit?
We're not focused on one specific spiritual gift, but we need assurance that you minister with more than just
your own strength and passion. We want to send you out filled with the power and gifting of the Holy Spirit.
** If at the end of the internship we can affirm these five areas... then we'd say you've successfully completed our program. **
