Kingdom Summer Internship for teens ages 14-17
7 weeks: June 18, 2017- August 3, 2018
Have you ever thought about what loving God and loving your neighbors actually mean? Or the even more mysterious question – what would these really look like in your life? Jesus pretty much said that loving God and loving people are the most important things we can do in our lives, but… what does it look like? And how do we find out our part in it?
This will be our sixth year of offering teens from local congregations an opportunity to explore these questions and discover their unique gifts through service, scripture, and community. We call it the Kingdom Internship.
The focus of the Kingdom Internship is service and spiritual growth. Interns will serve with other Good Works staff and college-aged interns in five distinct contexts: Neighbors Helping Neighbors, the Timothy House, the Summer Lunch, projects on the Good Works Luhrig Road property, and Friday Night Life. Interns will also be immersed in reading and interacting with Scripture pertaining to justice, mercy, and God’s identification with people who the world calls “poor.” Every week interns will participate in times of reflection and discussion about their experiences and relationships, what they’re seeing in Scripture, and what God is showing them through all of this.
The internship meets three days a week (Tuesday and Thursday’s from 8:00am-4:00pm and Friday’s from 1:00pm-8:00pm) for seven weeks this summer: June 18 to August 3, 2018.
Teens who complete all seven weeks will receive a $300 stipend at the end of the internship.
Part of the application process includes a recommendation from the pastor/leader of the teen’s home church. In some cases, a pastor may be the connecting point between the teen and Good Works, but this is not specifically required.
If you are 14-17 years old and are interested in applying or learning more, or know someone who is, then please contact Andrea Horsch by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (740-594-3339).
