At CRISTA Ministries we have a passion to develop young leaders. Our desire is to help you fulfill God's calling in your life, whether that is full time camping ministry, or some other vocational calling. Our Internship Department has two full time staff that are specifically devoted to your vocational development and spiritual growth.

As part of your professional development, we will take you to the regional CHA conference to help you make ministry connections for possible future employment. We help with resume writing, interviewing tips, and social media presence. Our goal is to not "use you" for 12 months and then say goodbye, but we desire to walk alone side of you for the long haul. Our Internship Department will continue to be a resource for you long after your time here at CRISTA Camps is over.

The 12 month paid CRISTA Camps intern program is designed for people who are deeply committed to Jesus Christ and desire to learn about creating and providing an environment where staff, volunteers, and guests can experience Christ.

2020/2021 Applications are now being accepted for our Aug 25th start date!

We believe this will be a life-changing experience where each intern will grow spiritually, personally, relationally, and professionally! You will come away more energized, trained and prepared for a lifetime of service. This is an action-oriented Vocational Internship, providing opportunities to develop servant leadership skills that will transfer to any future business, leadership or ministry opportunity.

Horse Interns will be involved in Bible studies, small groups, worship, sharing and fellowship, all while living and practicing servant leadership at our two camp properties. Interns must be willing to commit to all aspects of the program which will focus on Christ, discipleship, community and career.
