15-month Internship

Do you have a heart for the church and a desire to serve through camping ministry? Do you desire a deeper understanding of full-time Christian ministry? Would you like to grow in your leadership abilities and gain professional experience? If so, Tadmor may be the right fit for you.

Program Description

Tadmor's internship program is designed to train individuals to be leaders in the church. We use the education of real-life experiences mixed with classroom discussion to connect your unique gifting with ministry application.

The Internship Experience

Tadmor's internship is structured to provide you the best opportunity to minister and lead in the highest capacity. Our camp works closely with churches and pastors so that experience is gained not only in camp ministry but also in church ministry. This camping and church environment will focus on numerous aspects of Christian leadership for you to grow in. The internship covers 15 months from June - Sept (the following year). Each summer you will be assigned a role to serve within the Summer Ministry Team. We will do this based on what we assess to be your area of strength. The first summer you will learn much about how camp operates, how our values are lived out in what we do, and what it means to be a servant leader. During the non-summer months, you will learn to serve in a variety of ways specific to camp, in addition to receiving church leadership training. The next summer will be your opportunity to apply all that you learned during the first summer coupled with your off-season experience. At this point we expect great things and give great responsibility to our interns.
