What is Solid Ground?
The Solid Ground internship program was born out of a need to have effective training for young people wanting to continue their post school education. The training period takes about three months to complete, and the program runs for a year. The lighthouse on our logo signifies the team’s desire to be a shining light in the world.
It is the intention of the Solid Ground program to disciple young people to be well grounded individuals, spiritually as well as in other aspects of their lives.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” Matthew 5:16
