Love the Hill Summer Internship

Love the Hill Summer Internship

Do you believe that our light can outshine the darkness? Would you love to be part of a community of people transforming their neighborhood through picking up trash, serving, and loving on the people in the poorest neighborhood in Harrisburg? Would you love to live in a mansion full of people who passionately walk out the 1st commandment along with the 2nd through practical expressions of love and extravagant times of worship? The heart of the Love the Hill program is to learn to live out the Kingdom through serving, working and living in community.  This is two months full of lots of work and lots of fun. This is a practical approach to evangelism in the context of serving and living right in the midst of those you are reaching out to. It is also a chance to grow in your own personal life while intentionally training and developing leadership skills to further impact the neighborhood of Allison Hill. This program includes multiple opportunities to serve, grow and be discipled under the leadership of our ministry. The objectives of the Love the Hill Summer program are to experience and demonstrate:

  • Intimacy with God in the context of life and ministry
  • A lifestyle of prayer and worship 
  • The values of a culture of honor inside a community
  • The second commandment through practicing vulnerability, conflict resolution, self-leadership and responsibility
  • A lifestyle of the great commission and city transformation through local outreach opportunities
  • A supernatural lifestyle in the context of daily life
  • Discipleship and growth in the values of our culture

Program Requirements: The basic schedule for the internship will be working and leading volunteer teams out in the neighborhood from 9am-4pm Monday-Thursday and Saturday. Each evening we'll end with a time of worship and prayer out in the yard or going out on the streets to evangelize. You'll be expected to be a part of at least 3 of these evenings a week. Friday will be a free day and Sunday will be free until family dinner around 6 pm where we will regroup for the following week. The basic work day will include leading teams, working with them on the specific block for the week, and getting to know the neighbors.

*The cost ($1,000) will cover lodging, supplies, and food for lunch and dinner Monday-Thursday and Saturday, as well as Sunday night. The rest of the meals (all breakfasts, all day Friday, and lunch Sunday) will be on your own.
