Experience a truly life changing summer of reconciliation, growth, and building together as you partner with us to rebuild Jackson communities.  You will have the opportunity to get involved in a host of activities to hone and discover your strengths.

In addition, you will experience a familial life at JVMPF.  We believe Christian community is essential to building God’s kingdom.  When we fellowship together, we experience harmony in our work for Christ.  The mission of our summer internship is that you will grow closer to the community of God and experience that little piece of His grace on Earth.

Our program includes adventure and historic trips around Mississippi.  Jump off a waterfall while helping children embrace the goodness of this God-given life or improve your public relations skills by traveling with Dr. Perkins or Deborah as they share our mission and bring more communities together.

As we build our Kine’tik and Widgets programs we are also searching for app developers and programmers to help prepare our students interest in technical fields.

If you love working with children or if you enjoy fighting for a great cause, there are many opportunities with JVMPF!
