Looking for Interns
We are excited to tell you about the internship program at West Michigan Youth for Christ. Each year we select multiple candidates to join our team for a 9 month long internship. The program has encouraged individuals by providing excellent training and experience. Interns work on local campuses with a staff member and volunteers to reach out to lost kids and learn what it takes to be a ministry director.
Check out this Intern Video to learn more!
We are currently accepting applications until May and need your help! Would you be willing to share this with your ministry contacts or students/volunteers who might be interested? By spreading the word, we can be sure that everyone has the opportunity to hear about this great ministry!

Prayer and Praise
- Several WMYFC staff members just returned from a week-long training at the YFC Headquarters in Denver. Please pray they will be able to apply what they learned to their ministry sites.
- Praise God for two new staff members, Barry Dykstra (Byron Center Campus Life) and Teddy Davis (East Kentwood Campus Life)! Pray for them as they build ministry on each of their campuses.
- We hope to take 175 students/leaders to YFC Camp this summer. Please pray for kids as they begin to sign up and for the funds needed to come in. To provide a scholarship for kids to attend who cannot afford Camp, click here.
- Please pray for this time of year as students begin to turn the corner spiritually. Pray for our leaders as they engage in deeper conversations with students, both in one on one and group settings.
- Pray for "Ben" as he continues to peel back the layers of hurt and pain he is experiencing. Praise God with us that he took the first step!
- Pray for those God calls to be interns with WMYFC for the 2015-16 program
