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.
“My name is Darius Holt. I am 15 years old. At the age of 14 years old I started smoking weed and smoking cigarettes, and I got kicked out of my home. I met Andrew Lewis, a leader with Take the City and Occupy. I got saved and now I know who Jesus is. Since Occupy started last month, I have grown closer to God. I have made friends, and I have broken the cultural barrier. Jesus unites, and he has birthed a desire in me to see my city changed.”
