In many churches, youth ministry is focused on the teaching and training the children of church members. This internship will be focused on meeting unchurched teens in an effort to share the love and message of Jesus with them.
The goal is to see students saved, to see them integrated into the church, and to see whole families following Christ.
The means is through appropriate outreach, meeting felt needs, relationship building, unconditional love, gospel-centered conversations, and a commitment to prayer.
Many of the families who live in the Crossings820 Apartments are unchurched. Many have experienced hardships, broken family relationships, and other life transitions. Some are refugees who are persecuted Christians who come from Burma or D.R. Congo. Others are Muslims who come from Iraq, Sudan, Somolia, or Afghanistan.
Teamwork is an important part of this experience. You will work with a team of interns, volunteers, and others in order to engage youth in valuable ministry experiences.
Candidates that are interested in recreation ministry will also have the potential for valuable ministry. Southcliff has a gym that can be used for ministry. We also have used soccer as an avenue for ministry.
The main prerequisites are a love for teens, a love for God, and a willingness to take risks for the sake of the Kingdom.
Mission6 is a minimum 6-month internship focused on ministry families living in a local apartment complex. It is considered a paid internship, but the payment will be “non-cash compensation” of housing and utilities (including electricity, water, and internet) at the Crossings820 Apartments. Interns will commit to 12 hours of ministry per week in exchange for their furnished room, utilities, and internet. The minimum commitment is 6 months, some have served for 1-2 years.
