Cause 4 Life MMA Interns

This week, students from around the world are arriving at the Joni and Friends International Disability Center to attend the Cause 4 Life: Ministry & Missions Academy. This internship program is designed to educate and activate the next generation of Christian leaders for work in ministry, social justice and advocacy for individuals and families affected by disability all over the world. During their 8 week internship they’ll attend classes with disability experts and get hands-on ministry service at Joni and Friends as well as by serving alongside disability ministry leaders at local churches. They’ll also have the opportunity to minister to families affected by disability as short-term missionaries at a Joni and Friends Family Retreat before flying to Haiti to serve children with special needs at a Haitian orphanage. Join us in praying for our interns during all aspects of their training and outreach – you can even let them know that you're praying by leaving them a comment below! And check back this month to meet the interns and see how God is raising up the next generation to defend the cause of the weak and minister His heart to people affected by disability!
