Mission: The Christian, non-denominational, discipleship training program is our primary
objective at Casa de Maná campus. The completed campus accommodates 16-20
selected interns and will include a structured syllabus of Biblical teaching and prayer.
On-the-job training will happen both on-site, as well as with our partnering ministries
in the area. The setting is intimate, and the experience will be team-oriented.
Program Timelines: Programs will be offered for summer sessions, semesters, and full
year. Interns can expect to be placed in positions that best accommodate the individual’s
skills and desires.
Serving Opportunities: Some of the opportunities will include serving at orphanages,
children’s ministry, medical ministry, poverty ministry, home-build ministry, migrant ministry,
food and guest services, maintenance, and many others. Interns will split
their time serving off campus at other ministries and then returning to share with the
other Casa de Maná residents. Interaction with numerous ministries and members of
the community provides a healthy mix to better build each other up as everyone deals
with the many challenges, struggles, and blessings of serving in ministry.
Teaching: Teaching will be provided primarily by elders, but the interns will also be given
opportunities to teach and build leadership skills. Missionaries and spiritual leaders from
around the world will be invited to teach and share their experiences to provide more
awareness to our interns of what opportunities are available and what those positions
Accommodations: Accommodations are similar to college dormitories with a single
building housing four individuals, divided in two with two people to a bathroom. Meals
are served at the central lodge and eaten together.
Regular Schedule: A routine week will include five days of full-time service, with
Saturday as a personal day and Sunday for worship. There are numerous churches to
attend on Sundays.
Holidays: Dates for varying holidays will be determined at the beginning of the program.
Although there are no set rules related to receiving time off for travel or contingencies,
the leadership will prioritize ensuring that the commitments each individual makes to
their respective ministry are fulfilled.
Excursions: Interns can expect a number of excursions to be scheduled during their time
at Casa de Maná. These many short trips are intended to allow the individuals the
opportunity to get to know one another better and to take breaks from the routine of
serving. Some of the opportunities will include kayaking, surfing, hiking, off-road vehicle
riding, whale watching, and cultural trips.
Costs: Individual’s who are accepted into the internship program should normally expect
to receive full funding for living expenses. This includes lodging, utilities, and food.
Transportation is covered by the individual.
Post-Graduation Opportunities: The programs are intended to build up and equip the
next generation of disciples. Regardless of where the Lord leads you upon completion of
our programs, the experience and training will better prepare you in your next
endeavor. Some will choose to stay on in northern Baja, some will return home, and
others will go off to more distant locations. It is our hope that our interns will dedicate
themselves to a life of service with a desire to fulfill the great commission regardless of
where that may be.
Opportunities to serve long-term will be available at Casa de Maná. Long-term residents
can serve roles on site such as project director and caretaker. Long-term residents can
also be engaged in full-time service with other ministries. Regardless of where each
long-term resident serves, they will be a part of the family and be able to participate in
the community-based areas of fellowship, prayer, teaching and breaking bread. Living at
Casa de Maná is an intimate experience designed for those who wish to share their lives
with other believers as they serve. Please contact us for more details.
