SAUP summer is almost here! Do you want to see your life, your campus, and the city of San Antonio transformed through the hope of the Gospel? Join with likeminded Christians in following Jesus into the inner-city this summer, deepening your own discipleship as a leader while seeking justice and being a witness for Christ to the urban poor.
WHEN: May 28th-July 5th
WHAT IS SAUP SUMMER?
*SAUP summer is a 6-week internship experience, partnering with between 5-10 non-profit ministries and churches in the city. You'll spend over 140 hours (9-5, Monday-Thursday) serving in your ministry.
*You'll live life together with other SAUPers in the inner-city during the internship.
*You'll explore the Gospel, spiritual formation in community, and topics concerning injustice (poverty, education, stewardship, immigration, etc.) in depth. Aspects of the program include:
---> Weekly gatherings for teaching and training
---> Weekly Bible studies
---> Regular movie nights
---> Topical immersion weekends
---> You'll receive vocational and leadership training to integrate into your college/post-grad experience
