Summer Internship at Corhaven: Interning with Coracle is an opportunity to delve deeply into a life of Christian witness and ministry with Bill and Tara Haley in the unique setting of Corhaven, the Haley’s “retreat home” in the Shenandoah Valley. Living at Corhaven gives the intern first-hand ministry experience in the area of Christian hospitality, an opportunity to learn more about the theology and practice of spiritual formation, and a place to explore questions surrounding care for the earth and environment as he or she learns the practical skills of organic gardening and animal care. In all, the internship is an opportunity to “go deep” into the abundant life as you learn to care for others and the land. Learn more here.
