Transform’s Summer Intern Program exists to equip young adults to use, teach, and train the principles of Inductive Bible Study so that people may know God through His Word. We believe this happens most effectively in mentoring relationships and in the context of small-group Bible studies. Applications are currently being accepted for Summer 2014. Apply today! Application deadline is November 16, 2013.
Costs: Participants are required to raise $3500 support.
Raising Support: We ask that you contact people to partner with you in this opportunity instead of writing a check or having your parents pay for you. This allows others to participate in advancing God’s work and His Kingdom.
Salary: You’ll be paid $2000 for the summer experience; this includes a $1000 stipend for the program as well as $1000 for your work at Boot Camps.
Dates: May 19, 2014-August 1, 2014
Application Guidelines and Notification Information:
Mission: The mission of all Transform Student Ministries events is the same as Precept Ministries International, to establish people in God’s Word.
Lodging: On campus at Precept Ministries International. You’ll be rooming with other interns during the program.
Meals: We’ll provide meals, or money for meals, all summer ($25 per day), including weekends.
Hours: A strict summer schedule is impossible to predict. In addition to working Boot Camps, you should be prepared to work and study from 9am-5pm every weekday. You may also be needed for a couple of Saturdays, some Sunday-night and Wednesday-night obligations in addition to Boot Camps. Night activities could consist of work in local churches and service opportunities.

The following will be expected of all interns during Boot Camps.
TEAM LEADER—Responsible for students on team, team discussions, team study, counseling, mentoring, team sports, and kitchen duties.

Camp 2: June 22 – July 1, 2014
Training: We are working with Precept Ministries International’s training department to ensure that you get the best training possible so you will be equipped to go out and teach others how to do inductive study, as well as lead effective small groups, and ultimately reproduce other Bible Study Leaders.
