Student Summer Internship

June 24-August 8, Clarksburg Campus

Students in Grades 9-12

Surge is a seven-week summer experience to equip High School students to pursue God, empower them to build the local church and inspire them to engage their sphere of influence for Jesus. Through this internship, students will have an opportunity to sit in Bible, ministry, and life-skills classes, participate in outreaches, create new friendships and truly develop a deeper relationship with Christ.



Equip students to pursue an intimate relationship with God.


Empower students to build the local church.


Inspire students to engage their circles of influence for Jesus Christ.


Led by experienced ministry leaders, Surge will help provide a valuable experience for all High School Students that desire to take their summer to a new level.



The Surge internship falls under the umbrella of Church of the Redeemer. One of the requirements for the Summer is that students would attend one service and
serve another.
