Summer Internship Program

The E.S.M. Summer Internship Program is an opportunity for students to peek behind the curtain of ministry, serve God through Encounter Church in a greater capacity, develop their relationship with God, and develops both a leader and person.  

Interns will participate in dedicated prayer and Bible study times, assist in various church tasks, have focused ministry and leadership training, and will regularly participate in outreach opportunities.  During orientation, Interns will work with Pastor Rylan to develop a growth plan to help them develop in areas of hard skills, character, and spiritual disciplines.

  • The concept is simple: we give so others can speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness. This is accomplished by providing the "essential transportation and creative communication" equipment for missionary evangelism. Through modern transportation, radio, television, print, audio, and digital equipment, our missionaries can help make Jesus known.

    Speed the Light is the student-initiated, volunteer, charitable program that provides much-needed equipment to missionaries across the nation and in over 180 countries around the world.
