Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.

SOS ACADEMY

C901_SOS_DetailBarIf you truly want to make a change, most of the time you have to get right into the situation. That is exactly what Service Over Self does in Memphis’ Binghampton community. 
SOS is a leading piece of Memphis’ Christian Community Development strategy as they help repair homes and lives in the heart of our city. 

For those wanting to learn more about this and be a part of this work: SOS Academy is a one-year internship that trains and equips 19-26 year-olds to choose and do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly in an urban context.
SOS Interns will learn and grow as they:
  • live incarnationally in community in an urban poor neighborhood
  • grow spiritually as they are discipled and trained by SOS staff and community leaders
  • have their perspectives broadened as they are exposed to others living out the gospel in the urban context and through an international mission trip
  • gain practical, real-life experience working among the urban poor by partnering with organizations working in the inner city.

The SOS Academy runs from August 27, 2016 – July 31, 2017. Deadline to apply for next year is June 15, 2016.
