College Students


Each year the Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief organization offers an excellent opportunity for students to serve as collegiate interns.  The ten-week paid program will take students from where they are to being proficient in the major areas of disaster relief, develop leadership skills, and grow spiritually.  This collegiate team will serve locally within our state, or possibly go to surrounding states to serve the people who have been affected by the recent tornados, fires, flooding, and other disasters.

2024 internships run from May 27 – August 2.
