The 180 Student Ministry intern position will be a chance for an individual to learn about Student Ministries with hands on experience. High School interns do not necessarily need to feel called to vocational ministry, but will be gaining skill training in a ministry setting. Through this internship the individual will assist the Student Pastor and be challenged to grow in their Spiritual goals, personal goals, as well as their professional goals through the entire process as they serve the Student Ministry department at Ephesus Baptist Church.
The Intern will work directly with the Student Pastor in planning, setting up, participating in and in some cases leading some activities in the Student Ministry.
Intern may be asked to help in making contacts with students who have visited recently in attempts to make them feel welcome and encourage them to get plugged in to Wednesday night worship and a LifeGroup.
Intern will need to be a model student at school as well as on any and all student ministry events, trips, and activities.
Intern will help out with other general responsibilities, such as: activity and event preparation, participation in “on-stage” activities, correspondences, phone contacts, and other methods of follow up with students.
Intern will be assisting in a number of other activities in regards to everyday activities within the ministry. This may include organizing, cleaning, and preparing student ministry areas for use.
Intern will take part in creating at least 1 event or project that they are responsible for planning and then presenting to the student pastor.
