Ministry InternPosted by: Jesse Briles
Posted date: Apr-14-2016
Location: Spencer, WV
Our church and community is located in the hills of Spencer, WV. We are currently averaging in the 70s in worship and have several new families coming and attending our church. We have seen great growth not only numerically but also spiritually the past couple of years.
We are seeking to hire a summer intern that will help us to do even more in ministry as we help them learn about ministering in general but also in our cultural context.
We are open to interns interested in any one of the various fields/types of ministry (Children, Youth, Worship, Preaching, etc). The senior pastor is the only one on staff currently so if you want to use this as a school approved internship we will work with your school but it may be limited in what they will accept in specialized areas of ministry.
This would be a perfect opportunity for someone in college or seminary seeking internship experience at a church of our size. However, We are open to whoever God may be sending our way that is looking for ministry experience/opportunity.
The senior pastor is a former children's pastor so there may be great opportunities to learn from him if children's ministry is your speciality. Children's ministry is probably our strongest ministry and probably the one that could use an intern the most. However, if you feel the Lord leading you to contact us in regards to spending the summer please do so regardless of your future chosen field.
This position will be compensated by a small stipend, housing, and a scholarship. Any other needs may be discussed.
Please do not hestitate to contact us with any questions you may have!
