The-Why
How would the time be spent?
OUTREACH: A large percentage of time initially would go towards building relationships at refugee centers or on campus to start meeting contacts by fulfilling physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

DISCIPLESHIP: After some relationships are established, ministry efforts will begin to blend into starting and coaching Discovery Bible Studies among international contacts.

TEAM: Interns will contribute towards occasional Forefront events, team and staff meetings and assist in other areas of specific interest.

LEARNING: Interns will work with their supervisor to make an individual development plan to ensure optimal personal growth.

Support Raising
All internships are support-raised positions determined by the cost of living in each location and duration of the internship. Forefront trains and coaches interns through the fundraising process. A small percentage of the intern’s support will go towards operational expenses of the internship.
