Are you ready for a life-changing challenge?
In The Gap is looking for dedicated Christian young adults who are aged fifteen through mid-twenties, have a heart to know God, and desire to minister to children. We are not looking for your existing public speaking abilities, people skills, or teaching proficiencies. Rather, we are looking at where your heart is, and whether or not you are willing to submit yourself to an environment designed to help you grow—spiritually, personally, and professionally. Are you ready for a life-changing challenge? Are you willing to lay aside your personal interests? Are you wanting to become the best communicator possible in order to influence this next generation for good? Are you willing to put everything on the line? If you answered “yes” to all of the above, then click here for more information >>
The purpose of In The Gap’s Leadership Academy is to challenge young adults to grow in their relationship with the Lord, become grounded in a biblical worldview, and live as salt and light in the world. We offer effective tools and hands-on experience in order to communicate truth in both Christian and secular settings in Oklahoma City, at home, and around the world.
“I don’t think I’ve made a better, more life-changing choice than the decision to go to In The Gap, other than my salvation prayer. Looking back, God has taught me so much through this program. Not just practical skills such as public speaking, planning effectively for classes, and tutoring children, but also in skills that I can use to further the kingdom of God such as presenting the Wordless Book, being a leader, and having the awareness that God is always there for us. I have never relied on God SO MUCH in my whole life.”~ Jeriah (California)
“How exciting to be part of a program God is using to turn America back to Him! It was such a joy to encourage hundreds of children at school to base life’s decisions on what is right as well as explain Biblical concepts and lead children to Christ at Bible Club. There were situations where I didn’t know what to do, but I saw God’s faithfulness first-hand as He taught me to rely on Him. I wouldn’t trade the training and experience I received there for anything.”~ Esther (West Virginia)
“The Lord has used my time here to completely change my life. My view of the world was small, so naturally, my view of God was also small. While serving in Oklahoma, I saw kids who were broken and needy. I saw God working in real and measurable ways, and I met people who knew God for themselves. I gained a hunger for a vibrant relationship with God and a desire to see Him work in my life.”~ Katherine (North Carolina)
