2020-2021 Year-Long Missional Intern Application

Thank you very much for your interest in the Young Adult Missional Movement program.

This is a one-year program (from the end of August 2020 to the beginning of August 2021) for 18-30 year olds of mutual mission, transformational experiences between young adults, their living communities, the neighborhoods and the organizations in which they'll serve. The year is designed to be intentionally cross-cultural; purposeful in transformation and renewing for individuals and organizations as well.

Participants will receive housing, groceries, public transportation pass or equivalent allowance for transportation, personal stipend, an orientation retreat with all statewide participants, a winter retreat with local participants, a spring retreat with a cluster of other participants and post-service debriefing.

This is our seventh year of this program and we are excited that you have considered applying for this opportunity to serve, learn and live your faith in Christ together with the family of God in Florida.

Just a reminder, this is a formal application that will be used to secure your placement so please take your time in filling it out. Be mindful of capitalization and punctuation and make sure your answers are clear and professional.

We look forward to reviewing your application and we will be in contact with you regarding our decision.

God bless,

Heidi Aspinwall

Director, Young Adult Missional Movement
