All families with children are encouraged to connect with our partnering childcare facility, Building Blocks Child Care Centre, for an additional fee. Children 6 and under may attend Building Blocks, but for children 6 and above, it is at the parents discretion what they would like to choose as their method of child care; some options would be enrolling them in a local school, sending them to a child care facility of your choice, and if discussed and approved with the School Leader, some children (depending on age and needs) will be welcome to join portions of the Internship.
As interns prepare for the Pursuit Internship, many will need to fundraise in big and/or small ways. One of the biggest questions that is asked is about tax receipts. For all of our interns who are fundraising and talking to potential donors, this is an important question to know the answer to.
If an intern has a donor who wants a tax receipt, that intern will have to set up an account with a separate church and/or non-profit organization. Global Prayer House cannot issue a tax receipt for any funds that are designated for a specific individual. Global Prayer House can only process funds and issue tax receipts that are donated without any verbal or written communication in regard to the designation of the funds.
We recommend that any interns who are looking to raise funds talk with their local church about the possibility of setting up an account for this purpose. If your church is not able, the second option is to contact YWAM Vancouver and they will give you further instructions. Their contact information is as follows:
For the duration of the Pursuit Internship, we ask single interns to refrain from any and all forms of “exclusive relationships”, this also includes same gender relationships and attraction, which are not condoned by our ministry. This is to be a time set aside unto the Lord and not to another person. We strongly advocate that you keep these five months set apart unto the Lord and Him alone. The only exceptions would be married couples or formally engaged couples. If any single intern has a visitor of the opposite gender visiting from out of town, we ask that the visitor not stay with you. They would need to find somewhere else to stay while visiting. These five months is to be a time of consecration unto the Lord, but we encourage fellowship with all interns, staff, and guests.
