Internship Program

Journey Church has multiple Intern positions available for graduating high school, or college-age, young adults who desire to serve Jesus Christ through working in church-based ministry. Both summer and year-long options.

Our Interns work in partnership with the Journey Ministry Team and under the direct supervision of their specific ministry area Pastor or Director. Some of these internship roles have the potential to be paid opportunities depending on ministry need.

This is a great opportunity to participate in the lives of people by building relationships, mentoring, nurturing them in their faith and facilitating discipleship programs. Interns will have the opportunity to contribute and develop leadership skills by designing, implementing and evaluating programs such as Bible study, Vacation Bible School, weekly small groups, worship services, church administration, etc., in addition to a wide variety of church ministry areas.

This hands-on approach to ministry offers college-aged young adults a season to explore a call to ministry.

Interns will also participate in the life of the Ministry Team of Journey Church and learn ‘generalist’ skills for church ministry. Additionally, they will be included in weekly Ministry Team meetings and by working in conjunction with other all ministry team members at the church.
