Jacksonville is one of the largest cities in the U.S. and is unique in that there is both a downtown business district and lovely Jax Beaches.
TriLife Jacksonville has been developed to help students maintain a lifelong walk with Jesus. Our primary desire is that the participants grow in their relationship with God and fall more in love with Him as they “try life” in the real world for the summer. Nothing is more important than one's relationship with the Lord. We will strive to create an environment on the summer mission that facilitates this growth.
This summer mission is designed to develop you to "win at home, win at work, with the church". You will work a full-time job while on the summer mission, which can either be an internship in your field of study or just a summer beach job. After work, we'll be giving you practical tools and trainings to prepare you for life post-college - from budgeting to figuring out how to to find a Biblically solid church to plug into to being a light at work and even to preparing for marriage and parenting, should God call you to those roles one day. Adult life brings a lot to balance, and our goal is to set you up with some good tools and systems to honor the Lord in all of the areas of life. You will rub shoulders with other students, a local church community, local business people, and Cru staff who spent time in corporate America prior to joining staff with Cru.
Students on the summer mission will live in close community with the staff families, and we will seek to demonstrate how to balance work life and home life, all the while seeking to glorify God… even in conflict (because conflict also comes up in staff families!)
TriLife Jacksonville: "Win at Home, Win at Work, With the Church".
