As an EXIT band intern, you will be involved in a unique opportunity to put together a band for the summer. During the first month you will be involved in a week of training before concentrating on preparing as a band for a six week tour! You will be touring Josiah Venture summer camps that are a vital tool in bringing the gospel to the youth of central and eastern Europe in a relevant and relaxed environment.
You will also have two sessions of LIPS (Local Investment Programs), where you get to invest time and energy into two different local youth ministries in two different places. This is an incredible opportunity to pour into the lives of young people and be a part of the discipleship process.
This will be an amazing opportunity to share your faith and God’s hope-filled gospel message with young people using your gifting as a musician. You will also experience life on the road, playing, and performing. Be prepared for a very busy and stretching schedule that will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!
It will also be a chance for some of you experience Josiah Venture, living overseas, Exit Tour, and band life. You may consider coming over and serving for two years as an EBM (Exit Band Member) full-time sometime in the future!
