The Forma Project runs from mid-January to late-August,
in which up to six students will grow in their personal walk with Jesus.
Camp ministry, Christian education, Bible study, hands-on personal ministry, tangible work, and interpersonal development are all components that will foster an environment of maturing.
We've identified five aspects of the internship that will contribute to that growth:
While it may seem obvious due to the context of this internship, we are making this an intentional element of the Forma Project. Students will receive introduction, training, and experience in several disciplines, gaining insight into the work (often behind-the-scenes) that goes into being a year-round missionary in camp ministry. This may include areas of Program, Administration, Facilities, and Kitchen.
Becoming more like Jesus means being intentional with your time, investing in ways that will grow your faith and give direction for your future. In this internship the main focus is to develop your relationship with Jesus and your identity in Him. This happens when we engage each other and face hard circumstances and hard questions together.
Whenever a diverse group of individuals come to do life together in the name of Jesus, there are incredible blessings and opportunities for growth. Students will be stretched as they face joys and challenges, and even conflict, and work toward godly solutions together.
We all have so much to learn from Scripture, from teachers, and from each other. With a mix of in-class study, independent study, and streamed modules, students will engage with material on Christian worldview, Biblical studies, leadership, and theology. Topics and content will be taught by the Forma leadership, and occasionally supplemented by guest teachers, streamed workshops, sermons, etc.
Ministry to others is where the rubber meets the road in our lives of personal growth. Students will invest in lives at a local youth group and occasional guest groups, in tangible maintenance and janitorial work at Camp, in addition to unique leadership in the summer program.
