We are looking for Christian host home families who are willing to host 1 or 2 Piercing Word IGNITE Interns for the duration of their internship. We also ask our host homes to provide food for the intern(s) they host throughout the internship. Host homes must be able to provide their intern with a bedroom. Providing a private bathroom is preferred but not necessary. A shared bathroom is acceptable.
Length of Internships:
Internships vary in length from 1 full year, to 9 months, to 3 months. All of our interns start their internships in either June or September.
3 month interns start in June and end in August.
9 month interns start in September and end in May of the following year.
12 month interns start in June and end in May of the following year.
About our Interns:
Most of our interns are college age, but our past interns have ranged in age from 16 years old to 25 years old. We only bring on interns who profess to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and are wanting to be discipled deeper in their faith through this program. Many of our interns are actors, which can be very lively personality types, but even actors come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities.
Our interns hold a semi-regular office schedule that gets interrupted and altered week to week with rehearsals and performances. Our interns are in the Piercing Word office Tuesday through Friday 9am-5pm. They have Thursday night Bible study from 6pm-9pm. The will sometimes have rehearsals on Sunday afternoons, Tuesday evenings, and Wednesday evenings. They will sometimes have performances on Sunday mornings or other times during the week.
