Messenger Internship

No matter what your assignment is, whether it is your school, your community, your city, your state, America, or the world, this internship will equip you with effective strategies and tools to prepare you to be part of All America in this hour.

The Messenger Internship is a one-year internship and it begins with the student choosing one of two focus tracks that will train the student in specific skill sets and strategies that we are using to advance the Great Commission.

Internship Tracks

The start of the Messenger Internship involves the student choosing a specific focus track.  There are three, 3-6 week focus tracks to choose from, each highlighting different elements of Great Commission activity.  The Messenger Internship Tracks are centered around the themes of finish lines of the Great Commission.

The Messenger Internship Focus Tracks are:

  • Proclamation Evangelism Track – Coordinators, Proclaimers
  • Media & Communication Track – Essential for all aspects of the All America Campaign

Proclamation Evangelism

This training is for those who desire to see transformation take place through the public proclamation of the Gospel, either as a proclaimer or a gatherer and promoter.

There are two focuses in this training: one for proclaimers and one for gatherer/promoters, with certain lectures being combined.  Proclaimers will be trained to present the gospel in a dynamic way, and gatherer/promoters will learn how to build and organize large scale evangelistic campaigns in cities around the United States, and internationally.

In both focuses, these skills will be taught and practiced as the interns engage in our ongoing campaigns to proclaim the gospel to every person.


Media & Communication

Communication is at the heart of everything, and media plays a role in everyone’s lives.  These are at the core of the campaign to reengage America.  The Media and Communication Track will emphasize the importance and role of mapping, technology and media in completing the great commission.
