LIVE BOLD Internship
Spend 1 year with us. . . be changed forever
In Acts 4, Peter and John are proclaiming the good news, “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”(v. 12) They are arrested, threatened, and warned but their response is, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” (v. 19-20) Peter and John prayed for boldness (v. 29) in the face of threats, spoke the word of God with boldness (v. 31), and others recognized their boldness (v. 13). Others “were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.” (v. 13)
We want to raise up a generation that looks like Jesus. We need believers like Peter and John, proclaiming the Way, the Truth and the Life: sharing the love of Jesus. This will take boldness. Living out the Christian faith and proclaiming Christ in our culture in the face of persecution will take boldness. Our intern program is designed for this.
We want people to truly live and embrace the abundant life God offers - even in the face of suffering.
We will train our interns on the importance of living intentionally. We will train them to think, plan, prepare, organize, set goals and write a mission statement for their life - all while remaining flexible.
We will reinforce their value and the value of others based on being created in the image of God. To grasp their value, brings personal encouragement and peace. Valuing others moves us to treat everyone with love, honor, dignity and respect and keeps us from self-centered living.
We will reinforce the importance of keeping the "longview" of eternity forefront in all that we do. We want our lives, words and actions to touch eternity. This is done through focus on the gospel and its implications.
We will go to God’s word to address questions of faith and life, model personal devotions & prayer, study books of the Bible & read/discuss books on theology, the church, holiness, ethics, culture, and more.
All things outdoor to include some or all of the following: backpacking, hiking, rafting, snow skiing, horse riding, canoeing, tubing, wilderness exploration, and rock climbing.
Classes and hands on training in servant leadership, leading self/others/teams/organizations, communication, finance, hospitality, work ethic, hospitality, business, marketable skill, PR, and giving.
The interns will live and work together at Longview, work and/or take classes 20-30 hours in the local community or at Longview, be involved in a local church, serve in local and international mission projects, host guests of LV and connect with a family in a mentor relationship.
