EMBARK Internship

EMBARK Internship

Encounter. Equip. Empower.

EMBARK is a 12-week internship hosted by Gateway House of Prayer from February to April. Each year, we invite anyone who is seeking a deeper relationship with God to take a journey with us in being encountered by God, equipped by the Word, and empowered by the Spirit.

Malachi Track // Led by Jonathan and Becky Pickett

The Malachi track is geared toward the 50+ age group. The teaching is taken from Malachi 4:5-6, “See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.” God has a unique plan for every season of life. Learn how you can prepare your heart to disciple the next generation. Join us as we “mobilize the mature,” because this is not a time to retire, but to REFIRE!

Individual Track // Led by Matt Swords       

Youth (Juniors and Seniors) Track // Led by Tim Ornelas

The Individual Track and Youth Track will focus on understanding identity from the place of sonship. We will spend our time discovering the voice of the Father and finding His heart. In a world that is constantly trying to define and label us, we want to go back to the One Who created us. As we embark on this journey of understanding who we are, we will find that prayer and worship flow naturally. Come and join the sound of the next generation of Jesus lovers! There won’t be a dull moment!

Nightwatch Track // Led by Caleb Nolt

The Nightwatch Track will prioritize honoring Jesus and giving him a pure offering during the watches of the night. While the world is mostly sleeping, we will keep the the fire burning on the altar with a strong team to bring worship, adoration, and intercession before the King. We will specifically cry out for revival, transformation, and the harvest in Lancaster County and the nations. The Nightwatch commitment will be 10+ hours in the night (anytime from midnight – 4am).

E-Town Track // Led by Peter and Sharon Ogilvie

This Track is in partnership with the Park Street Chapel and the Well Downtown.
