The Journey Leadership Experience is not your average internship! It is an exciting new short-term mission opportunity in New York City that provides flexible and customized ministry experiences at one of the fastest growing churches in America. Hear what some of our alumni have to say….
“My summer as a JLE intern was, by far, the best summer of my life. Not only did I get to see all the amazing sights of NYC and make amazing friendships and memories that will last forever, but I got to see God work in ways I never imagined. I learned so much as an intern and grew in every area of my life. I was challenged physically, spiritually, and emotionally, and it changed my life. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but it was SO worth it! I am so glad that I did this internship and if I could, I would do it every summer!” – Laura M.
“My experience in New York City was life-changing. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but also one of the best. I learned things that I’ll be able to carry with me always in my every day ministry and in my career one day. The people at The Journey also made it an amazing experience. The staff has such a heart for the city, God’s church, and the people they interact with. You can’t help but love what God is doing there while working with such great servants.” – Ashley A.
“The summer I spent in New York City with The Journey Church was the best time of my life! Looking back, I never could have guessed that one summer would reveal to me so much about myself, about life, and about ministry. Working in New York City means being in the center of the world — fashion, business, entertainment, etc. Working with The Journey Church means being in the center of what God is doing in our world! I will never forget the people I met or the experiences I had in New York, especially since God is still using those people and those experiences to teach me things every day. The Journey Leadership Experience truly is one of the highlights of my life!” – Krystal G.
“My summer in NYC is something I will definitely never forget! I was exhausted a lot of the time but the fun I had, the people I met, the tasks I did, and the wonders of the city made it the most rewarding thing I have ever done. The mission teams and staff I worked with made it a time I will always remember and helped me learn a lot about myself. My team members helped me grow closer to the Lord, challenge me, and were there when I needed them. We were one body in different parts. They became my family and my best friends. I have worked in many places and I have never experienced what I experienced during my JLE internship. I did not want to leave and would do it over and over again if I had the chance. It makes you grow and your favorite day will be Sundays, or (“game day”), because of the way you see people and God during those days. I highly recommend this JLE experience.” – Niki M.
“The summer experience at The Journey Church was one that was unforgettable. Not only did I make lasting friendships, but I also learned about how to be a better Christian. I thought I knew everything there was to know, but this internship taught me that I can always learn new things and God can always open my eyes to see a bigger picture. This past summer was one that I will remember for the rest of my life. I encourage any and everyone to step out in faith and leap into the unknown to see what God can do with you, after all we are the clay and He is the molder. Let Him do his work.” – Megan K.
