We have had a number of Bethel students participate in this program and have found it very beneficial. Contact Dave Broza in Career Services for more information.
: OPIN Apprentice Program
MAP apprenticeships/internships are geared for well qualified college juniors, seniors, and recent graduates who have a strong Christian faith and are headed into career fields such as (but not limited to) Business, Marketing, Sales, Finance, Graphic Design, Film Production, Web, IT/IS, and Software Development. Though some of these highly sought-after internships may be unpaid, most opportunities available through MAP are paid. 

As a MAP apprentice/intern, you spend four days per week engaged in meaningful projects at your workplace, and one day involved in our marketplace ministry training and activities. You work in a position directly related to your field, gaining relevant experience that gives you an edge in your career and helps build your résumé. Because a core value of the program is that work is worship, the labor you do should be highly productive, honoring to God by adding tangible value to the organization and to those with whom you work.

MAP apprentices meet together for weekly training and activities, which comprise the heart of the program. These build on your personal relationship with Jesus Christ, with a focus on marketplace ministry and fulfilling God’s calling on your life. While this includes practical training for business and for life, the marketplace ministry core involves themes of prayer evangelism, servant leadership, a Biblical approach to work, and systemic poverty.

As an MAP apprentice, you will meet face to face with successful professionals from various industries who share from the example of their own lives and teach you in their areas of expertise. You will be exposed to numerous examples of how God is using His people in the marketplace. You can expect to benefit from valuable training, activities, and experiences that will help launch you into your future more prepared, with a greater sense of purpose, and hopefully with a greater vision for impacting the world.

MAP apprenticeships are full-time through the summer, with the possibility of continuing beyond that if mutually desired by both the apprentice and the company. Returning to work for a second summer may be an option as well.

Visit www.MarketplaceApprentice.org or contact map@opin.com for more information. The application deadline is May 7, but earlier application significantly increases your chances since many positions may already be filled.
