Program director Danielle Rebman explained that "internships help students explore their passions, gifts, and vocations while they serve cross-culturally in a missions context. The program this past spring and summer was very successful, and we're excited about the plans for Acts Project 2011."
"We anticipate that 15-20 students will make up this spring's Missions 420 class that will include an overview of missions history, theology, and current trends. Students will also get a vision for what's happening around the globe through field trips to a missions agency and a nationwide prayer gathering."
In May, the field component will begin as students depart for overseas placements in Europe, Africa, and Asia. The internships will end in August with a group debrief near Venice, Italy.
"This year," Rebman explained, "we are adding new ventures in arts and communications internships around the Mediterranean region. We are also incorporating a new partnership with the Education department. Throughout the summer, several staff and faculty connected to the missions class will visit interns and deepen partnerships."
