God is using bike trips, youth retreats, creative art workshops, day camps, hiking, Bible Studies, and much more in Northern Ontario to see the message of wholistic discipleship to be lived out and taught among Indigenous people. We are excited about what Jesus has for this next year and who He will bring to partner with us in helping see First Nations people get to know Jesus on beautiful Manitoulin Island and further north,
If you have a heart for Native Americans or are looking for a unique cross-cultural ministry opportunity close to home, then this internship is for you. The DayStar Internship program is primarily got college-age students, but if you have a couple months and a heart to serve, please contact us for more information. Teams are mobilized to work with children and youth to provide programs and relationships that will be healthful, fun, and Christ-centered. Through this, team members journey with Christ and long term staff, and leadership skills are strengthened.
What you can anticipate
During your internship, you can expect to be trained in and experience cross-cultural protocol specifically regarding Native culture. You will see the power of prayer more fully and be challenged to grow deeper in your relationship with God, as we can do nothing without Him.
Gaining curriculum development, creative problem solving, and classroom management skills also comes with the territory of being a DayStar intern. You will be part of the adventure of being stretched and challenged as part of a team with various giftings, personalities, and perspectives. You will see how God is bringing fruit in the lives of many Native people.
Most interns will also contribute in weekly activities of The Wikwemikong Fellowship, a Native church on the reserve.
A Story to Tell
Every intern has a story to tell. Three interns were asked if they could use one or two words to describe their internship with DayStar, what would they say? "Awesomely exhausting", "Adventure", "Challenging and rewarding" were their responses. Behind these words are faces of children, youth, and adults that they journeyed with the last months. Each person that they invested time with was touched by the love of God in and through them. So if you're interested please consider and pray about taking the next step towards a DayStar Internship.
