SUMMER INTERNSHIP SUMMARY
Interns have a special opportunity to challenge themselves spiritually, physically, and emotionally while at Camp. We want to give you every opportunity possible for you to use your unique spiritual gifts as you minister here in Romania. The following list is a compilation of some of the tasks and responsibilities that the interns do during the summer. We ask you to prayerfully consider which areas you could assist in as you prepare for your trip. Allow the Holy Spirit to stretch you and challenge you through this process and experience.
SUMMER INTERNSHIP EXPECTATIONS
You are a devoted Christ-follower and ready and willing to be pushed out of your comfort zone.
You will serve in Romania at one of our camps for two to ten weeks in the summer.
You are willing to be challenged and stretched by the Holy Spirit.
My internship in Romania was incredible because I learned new skills in communication and also was challenged in my faith and reliance on God. My summer experience was an adventure in trusting the Lord and witnessing Him transform hearts.
I served as a summer intern for 5 years now. My time at LifeRomania has grown me in my faith and as an individual so much more than I would have ever expected. God never fails to take my expectations and blow them out of the water to show me something better.
When Iulian originally asked me to consider interning, I said “no.” Thankfully, God worked in my life and made it clear the answer should be yes. I would not trade my summer in Romania for anything. God used that summer to teach me so much. I 100% recommend summer interning to everyone, it will change your life!
Interning with Life Romania is one of my greatest joys. God has used this ministry to reveal gifts He has given me that I can use for ministry and His glory. I am so thankful for this ministry and its impact it has on so many lives.
