We’re working on two lists right now and you are invited to help. In short the first is if your congregation takes a summer mission trip and is looking for somewhere to go in 2019 or if you need a group to come do a campaign for the area where you are, send us details. We will publish that list shortly. Second, if your congregation is looking for a summer intern send those details and we will share them with potential interns. Send either with any details to TJI@TheJenkinsInstitute.com.
