Summer Staff - Closed for 2017! 

Each year young adults come to Detroit to  develop leadership skills, engage in spiritual discernment, and live in community with one another, and create lifelong friendships.

  • Paid Summer Internship - room + board are provided, in addition to receiving a stipend of $3000 and returning staff earn more each year they serve.
  • Spiritual Discernment - staff meet with local religious leaders to learn about different roles in ministry (Elders, Deacons, lay staff, camping staff, missionaries, and more)
  • On-Site and Off-Site Training - staff will train for two weeks and will explore the city of Detroit while doing so. Then we'll meet up with another Michigan Area young adult internship program at a camp up north to gain some professional development that will pay off far beyond Motown Mission (volunteer management, business etiquette, discovering spiritual gifts, etc).  
  • Intentional Living - staffers live together in intentional Christian community
