Announcing a New Opportunity for College Students interested in Ministry: The First Baptist Church Family Ministry Internship Program!
 
First Baptist Church announces a new program that provides college and graduate students interested in ministry with an opportunity to work with families, children, and youth.  This program, which includes ministry coaching with a professional staff and loving congregation, will partner a student with the various volunteer leadership teams of our youth and children’s ministries.
 
The internship is a 10-month program (August-May), and includes a scholarship and stipend for qualified students.  The program requires 15 hours a week (including Wednesday night and Sunday morning) and an adventurous person who loves the Lord and Christ’s Church.
 
I hope that you will help us get out the word!  We are excited about this internship program, and the details and application packet are available upon request.  We also hope that you may have recommendations of candidates that we can contact on our own.
