AMAA Summer Internship Program July 5-19, 2016
To: All Armenian Evangelical Churches Worldwide
Attention: Pastors and Youth Leaders
From: Rev. Dr. Avedis Boynerian, Pastor Arm. Memorial Church, Watertown, MA
Date: February 5, 2016
Greetings in the name and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I am pleased to announce that the AMAA is organizing an Internship Program (July 5-19, 2016) to Armenia. This Program intends to give young adults from the United States, Canada, Europe and Middle East with an excellent opportunity to serve our people in Armenia with missions and ministries supported by the AMAA. The Program is designed to be a time for spiritual growth, a hands-on, practical ministry experience, as the interns participate in the missional work that the AMAA does in Armenia.
The Program is for young adults entering their senior year of high school to post-college age (mid-twenties). The major work will focus on spending time participating in day camps, summer camps, worship concerts, church programs and visitations. Also, the interns will travel together to significant historical and cultural sites.
I am asking you to help identify young adults, who may be interested in and can benefit from this Program, whose personal faith in Jesus motivates them to serve and work with others, and have a desire to grow in their Armenian heritage.
I will lead and head the Program, and also lead the interns in daily Bible study, discussion and prayer.
The cost of this Program will primarily be transportation costs (airfare), which might be approximately $1400-1600 for those who are traveling from North America, and less for those who are flying from other countries. It also depends on when the interns purchase their tickets. The interns are responsible to raise the funds of their tickets, passport, visa and their pocket money ($200). The AMAA will be responsible of the local expenses (food, housing and transportation in Armenia).
Time is of the essence. So, I kindly ask you to make a special effort to give these materials to prospective participants as soon as you can, announce and publicize the Program in your Sunday services, newsletters and electronic communications. The application deadline is March 11, 2016. I appreciate every assistance you can offer making this Program beneficial and meaningful.
Candidates will be selected on a first come first served basis. Those who are accepted into the Program, will receive notification by March 31, along with further information and instructions that will help prepare for this wonderful experience. Please, keep this Program in your prayers hoping that God will draw our young people closer to Him and inspire them with a lifelong vision and commitment to ministry in Jesus’ name.
