One Thing Internship

In the One Thing Internship we call a generation to wholeheartedly pursue God, lead consecrated lives of prayer and fasting, and learn to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is searching for a generation who, in loving obedience, will abandon themselves to Jesus as their supreme delight and pursuit—their “one thing” (Ps. 27:4). One Thing Internship challenges and equips spiritually hungry young adults, ages 18–25, to be equipped in a life of prayer and outreach.
