We invite you to engage in a community that challenges you to wrestle with your faith by discovering your core values, beliefs and passions, in order to advance and invigorate your lifelong journey with God. (Gen. 32:22-32) You will confront poverty and cultivate justice with a widened worldview and an understanding of your role as a reconciler (Isaiah 1:17; 2 Cor. 5:18-19) and explore the sending nature of God, creating a desire for lifelong mission involvement. (Acts 1:8)
Every young adult goes through a period of self discovery, where they learn to identify who they are and what they believe as individuals. Often the process is messy and hard to navigate. When Jacob wrestled with God, he was struggling through feelings of fear, mixed with a desire to trust in the promises God made to him. Our goal at TTW is to create a safe space for that wrestling to happen. We want interns to ask the hard questions that will develop a biblical worldview and bring them to a deeper understanding of God’s design on their life. We believe that these moments of self-discovery occur best when being exposed to a new culture and when coming face-to-face with poverty. Therefore, the Venture Project intentionally includes service in local and global ministries, personal development opportunities, and spiritual formation.
What People Are Saying
TTW has not only made a temporary impact on my life and where I want to be in the future, but also an eternal impact. This organization has stirred my affection for Jesus, challenged me outside of my comfort zone, taught me life-long skills, and even equipped me with knowledge that has helped me in my college courses!- Bethany
I took a gap year between high school and college and was really just trying to discover who I was, and what God's plan for my life was. I became an intern with TTW and the Lord used that time to transform me in ways I wouldn't have imagined. Those I have met through TTW and my internship have been a main source of guidance for me as I seek to pursue full-time ministry after college.- Jackson
The Venture Project was one of the most incredible growing experiences of my life. Everyday I had the privilege of working alongside genuinely caring individuals who encouraged me to claim my faith as my own. Living on mission is an everyday choice that clicked all the more in my heart as well as in my mind with the help of this life-changing internship.- Julia
This was more than an internship for me, it was a transformational experience. I grew spiritually by recognizing spiritual strongholds, intellectually by being equipped with the knowledge to help without hurting, and personally by being bold and going out of my comfort zone. I have a renewed sense of who I am, God's purpose for me, and how I am a direct part of God's plan.- Kaitlyn
Being a part of the Venture Project gave me the opportunity to engage with community locally and globally. It was encouraging to work alongside the passionate and dedicated staff, who truly wanted to invest in the lives of myself and others. The whole summer was a process of discovering more of who I am in Christ and gave me a clearer vision for what God has for me in the future!- Becky
