This summer, we offered an internship program called Occupy for high school and college students. Occupy is a 6-week program that is geared toward helping students grow in their identity and intimacy with God by going deeper in the Word of God, prayer, and evangelism.
The internship offers the opportunity for students to learn the backbones of ministry by working closely with Take the City staff in administration, social media, and videography. The following is a testimony of what God did in one of our interns while in the program.
Testimony from internship:
“I am a sophomore at Columbus State University. I was so excited when I found out that I was accepted into the Occupy Internship. Over the past weeks, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and wisdom about Christ and the authority we have in him through my leaders and our guest speakers.
I have developed an understanding of my identity in Christ and have learned the importance of intimacy with him. Occupy has given me an awesome foundation for doing ministry, and I want to maintain a close walk with Jesus each day here after.
As an Occupy group, it has been great to see the fellowship that we have developed among ourselves. I look forward to seeing myself and the rest of the Occupy Interns develop more in their walk with Christ. May God be glorified as he uses us to advance his kingdom.”-Nic Chavers
