LIA Summer Internship 2019


Opportunity Overview


The LIA Summer Internship is a culturally immersive missions experience created to equip and empower young adults to explore the intricacies of sustainable community transformation in both rural and urban contexts. At LIA, we long to raise up the next generation of Christian leaders by mobilizing young adults into the mission field and equipping them to serve local communities using our “wholistic” model. Our transformational development model serves alongside local churches within each community to target four main areas of need:

  1. Economic Empowerment
  2. Community Health
  3. Social Engagement
  4. Education

The LIA Summer Internship provides an opportunity to participate within the various programs and projects implemented within specific communities we currently serve. Our hope is to give our interns the same heart for church-centered community transformation as God has given us!
