Our Program

The Summer Internship program with Christian Students on Campus began in 2005 for the purpose of equipping students to serve the Lord Jesus. Interns labor side-by-side with staff members on campus and in the community during the summer, learning valuable hands-on lessons in outreach and shepherding.

You will experience the joy of serving with the team week by week in a variety of activities that will equip you and build you up together with your fellow team members. We pray that Christ be glorified and His Body built up this summer through our service.

Goals

Our primary goal in this internship is to help freshmen transition into college life with Christ as their center and Christians as their community. The duration of this program includes the entire UT freshman orientation, which spans over six sessions in the summer.

The internship has further set commitment to mentor junior high and high school students in a summer Bible camp, sponsored by local Christians. Interns have the opportunity to lead, facilitate, and set themselves as examples for these younger believers.

We also extend our internship outreach by participating in regional mission trips.
