Internship

June 13 – August 20, 2016

At Willamette, we strive to provide young adults with the tools to equip them for future ministry. We understand that young adults need to interact with a healthy, creative, growing, Christ-centered church and staff. As we shepherd over 2,000 people each weekend and countless more throughout the week, we believe our church is the perfect environment for learning.

Willamette Interns have the opportunity to be mentored in the following ministries: Willamette Kids, Willamette Students, Music, Discipleship, Creative, and more. Whether you’re a local young adult considering full-time ministry or a student pursuing a higher-education ministry degree, this internship is for you!

Areas of Focus

The Willamette Internship seeks to take young followers of Christ through a guided experience focusing on four areas of growth: self-discovery, spiritual formation, mentorship in ministry, and community.

Spiritual Formation
Interns will grow in their identity in Christ, belong to intentional discipleship and experience life change as we pursue God together.

Self-Discovery
We understand the importance of how God made us—with both strengths and weaknesses—and we desire to learn how to best steward these gifts and grow in them.

Mentorship in Ministry
We won’t just talk about ministry, we’ll be one-on-one with leaders further along the journey than us, showing us what strong servant leadership looks like in a local church.

Community
We are committed not only to working together, but growing together through the formation of a Christ-centered community.

FAQ

We do not offer any payment for the 10-week intern experience.

No. Housing is to be arranged by each intern.

We’d be happy to help, but cannot promise our program will fulfill all of the requirements for every university in our area.

Not much, however, it depends on your ministry focus. Having a laptop is helpful, but not required. We will supply you with journals, pens, books, and other fun things.
