    Real Interns With real stories!

    Here is some motivation and just a few testimonies of thousands wewanted to share these with you and you make your decision on being an Intern to America!


    Victoria Simmons

    My time as an Intern to America was spectacular. I was always able to meet Jesus on a personal level rather than a social level and not see him as my parents savior, but as my own savior. I made so many friends that I couldn't even remember all their names. Being able to serve the vision of Pastor Tommy and Rachel Burchfield is truly an honor. Here at interns to America, we are radical for Jesus. I encourage you to come and give it your all, because you never know what God has for you until you press into it! "God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them." -Hebrews 6:10


    Christian Sladcik

    I participated in Interns To America in the Summer of 2013. As a young man who has spent most of his life in church leaning about all God has done for us, I can say from experience that ITA made a huge impact on my life. Going into Interns To America I was struggling with my faith life and personal issues with my family, but coming here and learning under Pastors Tommy and Rachel helped me learn to trust in God through the good....and the bad. Interns To America helped me to be the servant God wants us to be and to trust in Him. I am proud to say that I now have an excellent relationship with my family, and God proves Himself in everyday of my life.


    Becky Van Buren

    I was an intern for 3 years. I had always gone to Discovery camp And always wanted to be an intern so finally when I was old enough I started interning in 2011 and it was a little scary at first cause I had never been on my own before where I didn't know anyone but I made friends very quickly and throughout my time as an intern i learned how to serve with a willing heart and learned how to respect Leaders not only did I learn things in the earthly realm but spiritually also I saw who Jesus was to me in a new way and I got to experience the love that he has for me. Interns to America is a great program for young people wanting to do something great with their summer.


    Anna Quinn

    I've been coming to Discovery Camp for a really long time. One year I came as a camper, and I was expectant, ready to receive whatever God had for me. I remember coming and having some problems with the girls rom my church. One night, I was up at the altar. I asked Jesus to send somebody to pray for me. Before I could say amen, my ITA angel came up behind me and prayed for me. She spent the next 2 days ministering to me, pouring out love to me, and showing me what it looked like to faithfully serve Jesus. When I was finally old enough, I signed to intern, and it taught me how to serve but even more than that. Jesus changed my life when I interned, and he took a heart hardened with sin and He made it a heart towards Him.


    Blake Medders

    My experience as an Intern to America was amazing. I was able to serve the ministry and God and in doing so was extremely blessed. I learned so much about who God is and became a stronger and more chivalrous man of God. If I could say one thing to all Interns it would be give it your all and never think it goes unnoticed because all the work I did has saved many lives and that is the most rewarding thing one can experience is seeing a person's destiny changed.


    Haley Porterfield

    How does one simply talk about the place where they encountered the love of Jesus for the first time, learned how to serve others selflessly, the importance of a good work ethic, how to pray the effective prayer over others (the WORD), made great bonding friendships, learned how to work well on a team as a team, character development 101, and with hands on leadership training for the past nine years? Well that is what the Interns To America program is all about. This ministry program has so marked me to love Jesus and to be leader by serving others above myself. As someone who has gone through the program, I can not recommend it highly enough for any young person who wants make a difference in this world for Jesus, or if you just want to have fun and make some awesome friends!

    • ...the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,
      and give His life a ransom for many.

      Matthew 20:28
    • Interns To America supports the local church by discipling young believers through relationships and Biblical Principles, teaching them that serving people is the ultimate demonstration of love and will be challenged to return home ready to change their generation.

    • The Interns To America program is a home missions opportunity created to supplement the Discovery Camp staff and introduce young believers to the joy of serving.
