Community Living The "intentional Christian community element" makes this program distinct and effective. Interns share a common food allowance, transportation funds and spiritual growth insights. Participants live in community with each other and with their hosts in their temporary city.
Leadership Development In the UCC and Alliance of Baptists diversity is a big piece of our identity. The churches socially progressive statements and advocates politically from a faith perspective. These diverse, community-service-integrated ministries are the church showing interns, congregations and the wider church and world where this is happening in our midst. The projects help interns develop commitment to engage in this kind of ministry long-term.
