  • The project is designed to take place at the intern’s home church

  • It is for a unique individual who desires a deeper look into ministry at a young age

The Conference envisions one to two individuals each year in the Samuel Project. The Samuel Project is another building block in creating a culture of call throughout the Dakotas Conference.
