The Journey 1:8 Experience is all about discipleship, living in community, evangelism, leadership, and global missions. Based on the missions mandate found in Acts 1:8, the Journey 1:8 program is an exciting internship program for college students focused on discipleship and missions in the local church context. Learn what it means to live on mission in your community as you encounter people who desperately need the love of Christ.
