The True North program is eight weeks long, beginning in June and ending at the beginning of August. While most of your time will be spent working in your primary department, interns will also meet up for group activities a few times each week throughout the internship. These activities include...
About once a week interns meet in the morning for workshops and discussions with Christian speakers, pastors, and authors. These sessions allow interns to engage in meaningful conversations, ask difficult questions about faith and theology, and hear diverse points of view from speakers both within Northland's community and outside of it.
worship in the arts camp
Worship in the Arts Camp (WITA) is one of the biggest productions at Northland during the summer. This weeklong day camp for children from 4th to 8th grade teaches kids how to use music, singing, and the arts as acts of worship. True North interns serve as camp counselors, worship leaders, and tech team during the week of WITA.
Throughout the summer, interns will travel together with Northland staff on a number of occasions to visit some of Orlando's sites for recreation and ministry. Places True North has visited in the past include Universal Studios, Full Sail University, and Feeding Children Everywhere.
True North follows Northland's model of house churches, which are small groups of believers meeting to develop their faith outside of the typical church walls. During the summer, interns will meet each week at a Northland staff member's house for dinner and discussion. These dinners can include Bible studies, prayer, reflection, games, or just conversation with friends.
