Ever considered how God might use your creative skills and gifts to build His Kingdom? Through the Impact Summer Internship Program (S.I.P.) you will sharpen your skill set and personal passions while growing personally and spiritually. Use your media, writing, photography, and design skills for the production of promotional and ministry materials for The Impact Movement!
Unlike most skill-focused internships, you will experience authentic community in a work-environment, challenging you to grow as a leader of integrity and capability.
For the internship, we are taking college students who have training and interest in the following areas:
- Graphic and Web Design
- Video Production
- Writing and Journalism
- Photo Journalism
- Conference and Event Planning
- Desktop Services
- Database Management
- Network Design and Maintenance
- Research and Development
The materials you produce during the Impact Summer Internship Program, such as ministry brochures, evangelistic articles, ministry materials, videos and event set-ups, will be a significant contribution to help leaders of African descent take the truth of Jesus Christ to their campus, community and the world!
You will experience great fun, relationships, spiritual mentoring and ministry training. During the day you will work on priority projects with collaborative teams, utilizing your specialized skills while also acquiring new skill sets. You’ll benefit from our unique and engaging professional development series, The Well, plus learn how to share your faith creatively through social media outreach. One day a week you will be able to minister within the Orlando African American community through service and also share your faith on the campus of the University of Central Florida.
In the evenings and weekends you will engage in Inductive Bible Study methods, share lifemaps, have family dinners, enjoy hang out times and benefit from weekly Men’s and Women’s Times. We’ll also check out local spots like Kelly Park natural springs, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice, plus opportunities to enjoy the Orlando tourist attractions like the Disney Theme Parks, Universal Studios Orlando/CityWalk, Daytona Beach and much more!
The cost of this mission covers housing, materials, events and per-diem for meals. Doesn’t cover travel costs. But we will provide training to help you develop a team of ministry partners to cover your total summer internship cost including travel.
Check with your university. They may give you credits for this summer internship!

Quotes & Testimonies from Past SIPPERS:
Sabrina Bellamy (2012 S.I.P. Intern)
“God’s Kingdom: Working on these projects and on S.I.P. helped me to see how media, arts, etc., can be helpful and very useful in ministry.
Me: I feel I was definitely challenged to stand up for my creative vision and voice. I was also challenged to be open to others’ creative vision.”
Joey Gentzler (2012 S.I.P. Intern)
“The experience that I did gain with outreach, though I still have a ways to go, will no doubt help whenever we do evangelistic activities (back on campus). Hopefully I can make it work to present my Inductive Bible Study to a group of students and I definitely feel more confident when speaking in front of a group now.
Men’s Time: Definitely going through “Kingdom Man” with Grover was impactful. It’s such a great book because Tony Evans does an amazing job of relating real life stories about sports or other “manly” things metaphorically to the different aspects of what it means to be a kingdom man. It’s also a timeless book because there are things that apply to boys, to teens, to college aged guys, to husbands, and to older gentlemen. It will be on my shelf for a lonngg time.”
Sharion Scott (2010 S.I.P. Intern)
“I don’t feel like I’ve ever been challenged like this before. I have to lead projects, create new material, and become a person who takes initiative and lives out God’s principles in the office environment.”
Keisha Okafor (2010 S.I.P. Intern)
“This experience has been full of work, sweat and tears, but it’s been the most I’ve grown in my walk so far.”
