DAY 39 (52 Days)

ENHANCING OUR INTERNSHIP DEPT! One of the best ways to get more involved with GTD and serve in a ministry for an extended period of time is to become a GTD Intern. Interns represent the values and mission of GTD while assisting in the work of planning, preparing, and providing the actual events for our participants. Within every GTD event are countless to-do's and work projects that have to be accomplished together as a team in order to provide a God-awesome experience. Tasks may be as simple as washing dishes, unpacking & repacking gear, or as complex as setting up rock climbing routes and leading group devotions. When possible we try to match up an intern's giftedness with actual tasks that correspond with their talents, passions, interest, temperament and spiritual gift. But there are also numerous menial "mundane" jobs that we all have to do as well. Part of our 52 Days campaign is enhancing our Internship Department so that we maximize the opportunity to work with fantastic young people while also offering leadership development and experiential learning that produces management maturation. On top of all of that, it's just plain fun to be an intern in an outdoor adventure ministry! Keep your eyes on our Internship Department as it blooms into its full potential. And prayerfully consider interning with this ministry. It's an exciting time to be a part of GTD!
