---Discover Internship 

Two Month Student Missionary Internship

Young adults can explore culturally relevant ministry in the Northwest through our two month DISCOVER experience. This time is used to help young adults understand the culture of Montana, learn how the church effectively reaches the culture and build relationships with the unchurched. Students will serve at Outdoorsmen Church campuses and assist other local church plants and ministries.

 
Each summer students are trained to effectively build relationships with the unchurched through activities such as hiking, archery, camping and kayaking. Through day camps they minister often to children, many who have never heard the Gospel.  They go on missional expeditions with other local church plants as they seek to build bridges with the lost.

For those open to non traditional methods of reaching the lost, DISCOVER is a great program to go DEEP into the heart of Montanan ministry.

Pursue an area of ministry that fits your calling & passions: youth, kids, men, women, worship, small groups, college/career
