The weekly schedule evolves from internship to internship, so we can give you general information that is less detailed but is certain for all the internship semesters in the foreseeable future. We can also give you more specific information, which is more detailed; however, this more specific information is highly subject to change in the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018.
Generally speaking, we are committed to providing three things1 for all part-time internships in the foreseeable future. You will be immersed in:
1) Prayer and Worship
2) The Word of God
Specifically, you can look at our Spring 2017 internship schedule on the tab called “Tentative Spring ’17 Weekly Schedule.” We hesitate to post this schedule because it will be altered for the Fall ’17 and Spring ’18 internships.2 That being said, we post it to show you what the schedule generally looks like so that you will have an idea of what we will be working with. Here is an explanation of each of the elements on that schedule, though the individual elements are subject to change as well:
Prayer Room (Prayer & Worship)- The core of the Intensive is the prayer room. Here, you will engage in vibrant worship, learn to commune with God, deepen your love for Scripture, and shape history through prayers for justice.
Prayer Room Lab (Prayer & Worship)- This is where we will learn how to engage in the prayer room. This is an opportunity to practice a method of engaging in the prayer room. The time will go like this. We will begin without about 15 minutes of instruction on how to do an activity in the side room. Then, we will spend about 45 minutes to an hour you in the prayer room completing that activity. After you spend your time in the prayer room, we will spend a few minutes in the classroom debriefing on the activity.
Practical Lifestyle of Devotion Class (The Word of God)- During class time, we will discuss the practicals of engaging the prayer room. The first unit will be on how to study the Bible. The second unit will be on how to pray and intercede. The third will be on how to worship.
All Intern Fellowship Night (The Word of God & Community)- This is an opportunity to fellowship over a meal while we learn more about the vision of night and day prayer in the Bible.
