Tops Internship

Developing leaders within a unique ministry environment


The heartbeat of The Tops Internship is to disciple and champion young, outstanding, Christ-centered leaders, to explore and discover their personal gifting and passions. Interns are invited into a live-in, two-year spiritually formative adventure of servant leadership, vocational study, and professional exposure in a Christian Camping community.

 

The two year process is designed to place interns into different environments, facilitating spaces for growth, character development, discipleship and gaining valuable life skills.

 

For the remainder of each week you’ll undertake a Diploma of Christian Studies facilitated by Australian College of Ministry (ACOM) and expand your understanding and critical thinking about faith in Jesus. This also includes a two-year, spiritual formation journey with trained facilitators and a personal spiritual mentor. If you choose, you’ll also have the opportunity to complete a Cert III in Outdoor Leadership with our training team.
 

Each year students will also be taken on one exposure trip either nationally or internationally to visit and serve other camping ministries, so they can grasp a broader understanding of the dynamic nature of Christian Camping.

 

Some Feedback from Past Tops Internship Graduates:


Andrew
“This isn’t just a training program to learn how to do a job. It’s an opportunity to make your faith practical, and discover how God teaches us through community, adventure, risk and saying yes. No matter where you end up after these two years, you’ll have learnt what it means to say yes to what God has for you next.”
 

Georgia
“The internship provided me a space where I was able to discover more of who I am and who God is. I was embraced by the community of the Tops who became my intern family as I was a part of day to day camp life. Through experiences and having people believe in me over the two years of the internship, I developed my leadership skills, confidence and love for camping. So many incredible memories and two years of my life that are definitely some of the best!!”
 

Monique

“The internship has been two big formative years in my life. I could never have anticipated the adventure I experienced, the friendships that have been created and the personal formation journey I have gone on. It has exposed me to passionate people who love what they do, both at The Tops and in the wider Christian camping community.”
