Spend an adventurous year overseas serving with an Epic Movement missional team, as you use your personal life testimony as a bridge to faith and as an expression of God’s glory in your life. You can bring the gospel to those that don’t know Christ and help raise up a movement!
STINT stands for Short Term INTernational. The STINT Internship program lasts about a year (depending on location), typically starting and ending during each summer. We are currently sending STINT teams to the following locations:
- East Asia
- Southeast Asia
- Japan (2017 – 2018 academic year)
A few reasons to go on STINT:
- Changed Lives: God is in the business of changing lives through Jesus. His primary plan – His plan A – for this is to use people just like you.
- The Harvest is (Ridiculously) Plentiful: Jesus said it, “The harvest is plentiful and the workers are few”. There is an overwhelming desire and need students have to know Christ. Who will tell them? Why not you? The best, the most fruitful, way to share the reality of Jesus Christ with students of the world, is to send students to take that message to them.
- Calling: The idea and misunderstanding of this word, calling, is one of the biggest obstacles students face when considering an opportunity like STINT. “How do I know I am called to this? Where exactly is God calling me?” Don’t let this paralyze you. Someone once said that the need institutes calling. Why wouldn’t God want you to prayerfully consider this?
