The Mounternship

equipping today’s riders to reach riders

We live in one of the most incredible places in the world. A ten minute drive from our church doors gets you to some of the most famous mountain bike trails in the world. Only thirty minutes and you can be strapping on your skis. Jesus’ final command was to “go, and make disciples”, and these North Shore mountains are our mission field. They are unique, and our discipleship training should be unique.

The Mounternship is a different kind of internship. We will combine the passion we have for our mountain sports with learning how to follow Jesus well, and how to help others do the same. We will ride together, eat together, and build trails together. We’ll learn how to read and study our bibles better, and how to share our faith in our mountain-riding culture.

Whether it is mountain biking or skiing, we want to disciple you, while teaching you to disciple others.


WHO SHOULD APPLY?
You should apply if you want to learn how to follow Jesus better, while riding bikes and snowboarding/skiing with us. It’s our hope that this model of small group discipleship will radically affect your spiritual life and bring you into closer relationship with Jesus!


SCHEDULE
The Mounternship will run from October till February. We’ll meet up on Tuesdays at the Hub from 9-3, Thursdays we’ll meet on the mountains in the late afternoon for riding and community. We’ll also ride or dig on some Saturday mornings together. Some weekends we’ll TIME travel (TALK, INVEST, MENTOR, ENCOURAGE) together to take our learning and our riding somewhere else!


COST
Mounterns will be expected to purchase their own season pass at Seymour (approx. $400), a 2019 NSMBA membership and trail boost ($55), as well as chip in for any travel expenses incurred by weekend trips we decide to take. There is no tuition cost or book cost for the Mounternship!
