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 Nic Chavers:
“Together 2016 was very impactful and a great declaratory act of Jesus for our nation. Throughout our trip, we had a great time as a community of believers by going on outreach and touring the national monuments. One of my favorite moments during our trip was praying and worshiping with Dick Simmons, the founder of Men for All Nations. I enjoyed spending time with such a great Christian leader for our generation. This trip really made our internship one I will never forget.” – Nic
