Summer 2017 Ministry Internship
Integral to our mission as a church is our role of being instruments of the Holy Spirit to move through us so others can become disciples of Jesus Christ and explore their calling for pastoral leadership.
God calls us all to ministry but calls some to ministry as a vocation. This summer First Cary is offering young adults an opportunity to discern and explore God’s call on their lives. The Ministry Intern will have the chance to shadow members of our ministry team in different ministry areas of our church. This is an 8-week paid internship at 20 hours per week. The schedule varies and includes Sunday mornings, Wednesday nights, and some Saturdays. Participation is required at weeklong camps such as Mission Week and Vacation Bible School. The internship is designed for students who are exploring God’s call to ministry and who have completed their junior year of high school to those who have completed their freshman year in college.
If you are interested in applying for the Summer Ministry Internship please complete the online registration form and submit an essay that responds to the questions below. The essay should be no more than 500 words. Please submit the essay to Pastor Emily Mills via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by bringing or mailing a hard copy to the church.
You may contact Pastor Emily Mills or Duke Ministry Intern Corey Dao-Forrester at email@example.com with any questions you may have or if you need any more information. The completed registration form and essay are due by 5:00pm on April 30, 2017.
