“For even the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
~Mark 10:45

What do we do?

Makanalani Interns work on various jobs around the farm and some local businesses in order to further the mission of Makanalani, which is to provide a free camp experience for kids in order that they may experience God’s love and the beauty of His creation.

What do we learn?

One day each week we gather for devotions and teachings to learn and grow in servant-based leadership skills. We learn how to take the skills we acquire here into future ministry opportunities.

How does it work?

We have 3 Serve Sessions a year, each lasting approximately 3 months. Tuition for a serve session is $1,000. Housing, utilities, meals, and learning materials are included in the cost of tuition, and averages out to only $11 per day! We get 3 days a week to enjoy island life, go to the beach, serve in a local church, and rest!
