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.
While in the program, the students took a trip to Washington D.C. to participate in an event called Together 2016. The movement’s goal was to gather 1 million Christians at the mall of D.C. for prayer and worship to see our nation turn back to Christ. Here is a testimony from one of our students named Jennifer:
“Together 2016 was an awesome event. Even though the officials decided to close the event early because of the weather, I had a great time. My favorite part was during the last song of the event, they stopped all instruments and the whole crowd was singing. The voices of thousands of people filled the whole field. It was beautiful. Honestly it brought me to tears seeing so many people worshipping God. This trip is an experience that I will remember forever.”
