Don't just want to land a job, but to change the world through the work you do? Want to be part of something bigger? You're not alone.

At the intersection of passion, knowledge, vocation and faith, many young people hope to continue learning,to experience life in the context of Christian community,with opportunities to serve and to share who they are. Mission Indy's Intentional Formation Initiative (IFI) is exactly this sort of experience! IFI is a fellowship program in Indianapolis that couples living in community with learning about the Kingdom, and an opportunity to work (and be paid) in an area you are passionate about.

  • Engage in the life of a local church. At Mission Indy, we think the local church is kind of a big deal. We’re firm believers that it’s the best way for people to live out the ways of Jesus and live into the Kingdom of God. That’s why one of our favorite parts will be diving into the life (not just Sunday mornings) of a local church.
  • Study and talk about the Kingdom one day a week. This one’s hard to sum up. In short, we’ll be talking with one another about what we see, hear, and experience from some formational books, several Kingdom practitioners, and many of Indy’s movers and shakers.
  • Live in a community house in the inner-city. This will truly be sharing life together with all its messiness and beauty. Fellows will eat together, pray together, do the dishes together, celebrate birthdays together, and (probably) even get the flu together.
  • Work in an area of interest four days a week. Mission Indy has many partners around the city who are interested in hiring our Fellows. We are committed to providing Fellows paid work in areas they are interested in. Part of this pay will go toward living expenses and program costs. The rest will go to you, the Fellows.
  • “When I participated in Mission Indy’s summer intern program I didn’t really know what I was getting into. I knew I’d be working and serving in the inner city, developing relationships with other interns, and learning more about God and how I fit into His plan, but what I didn’t realize was how challenging and complex those things really are and how much of it would drastically change my thoughts, my actions, and my faith... The following summer I decided to come back to Mission Indy as an intern coordinator, not only because I was thirsty for more, but because I was desperate to help others find that thirst for Jesus in themselves... I can’t begin to express how excited I am about the IFI (Fellowship Program). So many interns have been transformed by the short time they spent with Mission Indy and I know that those who participate in this fellowship will leave thirsty for more." -Ashley Haack, Intern Coordinator '15
