The Great Plains United Methodist Micah Corps program is based on Micah 6:8: "Do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God."

This summer intern program is designed to give young adults opportunities to:

  • grow in their spiritual walk with God
  • link faith with social justice action
  • learn from social justice experts in Nebraska, Kansas and Washington, D.C.
  • strengthen leadership skills, and
  • connect with Great Plains United Methodists across Nebraska and Kansas

Wholistic discipleship includes direct service (charity), education and justice work. Interns do all three with a special emphasis on justice work. Shane Claiborne helps with this image: “We give people fish. We teach them to fish. We tear down the walls that have been built up around the fish pond. And we figure out who polluted it.”  

- Shane ClaiborneThe Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical 

Most of the summer's experiences are framed around tearing down the walls (of poverty, environmental degradation, violence, nativism and food scarcity) that have been built up around the fish pond and figuring out who polluted it.


The internship includes going in-depth in five social justice issues: 

Restoration &
Environment Immigration Antiracism Food Insecurity

Social justice activities for youth groups

The 2015 Micah Corps interns created activities for youth groups that offer a series of discussions, videos and activities which will teach youth how the issues connect to their faith and challenge and inspire the youth to use their power to change the world. These activities are formatted under five four-part units where through the activities, Scripture and discussion students will learn concrete ways to be accepting, be aware and create change in their society.
