Ministry Details

Africa Trek (AT) Interns can join the internship in January and will complete a 3-month Trek as a regular participant. For the following 5 months, the Intern will participate in the leadership development program that will be tailored by the AT Ministry Leaders to their specific needs, gifts and skills.
Potential activities may be to complete a course such as the Leadership Matters Course, or the Mentoring Clinic, and Interns will be given assignments to do, and books to read by the AT Ministry Leaders. The Internship will conclude with a 3-month Trek that the intern will co-lead with another AT Leader at the discretion of the AT Ministry Leaders. If the AT Ministry Leaders do not deem the Intern ready to co-lead a Trek, they will engage in an alternative leadership experience for the final 3 months to culminate the Internship.
