INTERNSHIP KIT: RESOURCES
If you've read through our conceptual overview (the basics), then how these resources are organized should make sense. This page is meant to be a sort of quick guide to the resources for easy downloading. Basically, feel free to use these documents as is. Of course, you should probably tailor them to your church and to your church context. If you have questions, remember, you can always contact us.
