In 2011, MERCYhouse launched a prototype of an internship program (aka Josh and Gregory) and were greatly blessed by their service to our church that came to a close (formally) at the end of May 2012.
We currently have two types of internships available:
Senior Intern - This internship is for graduating seniors who desire to spend their senior year of college spending concentrated time serving in the church and on the mission of reaching students on their campus. It is unpaid but will include training times and regular opportunities for mentorship. Interns will be involved in serving both inside the church and will be involved in reaching and shepherding students. Number of hours per week would be determined based on availability of student but will be at least 10/wk.
Post-Graduate (or non college) Intern - This internship is for those who have graduated from college (or don't plan to attend college). These interns will be serving for a miniumum 0f 20 hours/wk and will also be holding down a part-time (no more than 20 hr/wk) job. Housing and a stipend will also be provided in addition to training and mentorship. Responsibilities will include both ministry inside the church and on area campuses.
