IL: Patrick Odum, Northwest Church of Christ
As our summer intern, your primary focus would be to win teens in grades 6-12 to Christ, connect them with other Christians, and to help them grow in their faith. You would serve, lead, teach, mentor, and encourage our teens in their walk with God in the context of service projects, activities, classes, and just hanging out. We’re confident that God will use the student we select to create something in our teens that will last long after the summer is over.
The ministry intern will be supervised by the ministers. Specific responsibilities include:
Teaching or co-teaching at least one, and preferably two, teen Bible classes per week.
Preparation for and leadership in Vacation Bible School.
Coordinating and leading service opportunities.
Planning and leading outreach efforts, retreats, devotionals, etc.
Bible studies, prayer, and informal counseling as needed.
Because we are a small congregation and our ministers do not specialize, other opportunities for ministry will likely include:
Leading in worship (singing, prayer, etc.)
Preaching on occasion
Working in our food pantry, nursing home ministry, etc.
When not involved in ministry-related activities, our intern maintains daily office hours from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. The day typically begins with a devotional. Office hours are used for planning, coordination with adult youth volunteers, class and activity preparation, and administrative duties. The intern will be provided with office space, phone, computer, and other necessary equipment. Normal days off will be Monday and Saturday when youth functions are not scheduled for those days. Other time off will be addressed as necessary.
Interns will receive a salary of $250-$300 a week.
Meals will be provided.
All ministry - related expenses will be paid or reimbursed.
Housing will be provided.
It will be very helpful for the intern to have his own vehicle. (Gas will be reimbursed.)
Applications should be professional, typed, and include a resume and other appropriate supporting data.
