Philpott Memorial Church is an evangelical church, belonging to the Associated Gospel Churches, situated in downtown Hamilton.  We are a historic church of 125+ years in the urban core of the city.  Our staff team is made up of both paid and volunteer positions covering:  worship arts, urban ministry, inter-generational family ministry from children to young adults, prayer and spiritual direction, and seniors visitation.  We currently have an interim senior pastor.

PMC is looking for a theological student to complete a 4-month summer internship focused in family ministry.  We want to offer a seminary student the opportunity to develop church ministry skills while gaining an understanding of an inter-generational model of discipleship.  This is a paid position.


  1. Plan and lead a mission week of intentionally inter-generational service experiences in July and August.  This will be done in collaboration between Family Life and Urban Ministries.

  2. Prepare for and lead Kids Worship segments in Sunday morning services and support the Summer Sunday School Leader.

  3. Contribute to the further development of our family ministry strategy through things like:  youth leadership planning; faith family partners; resource development for parents and grandparents; volunteer training development, etc.

  4. Additional areas of ministry involvement will be considered based on the interests of the student.

The Family Life Pastor will provide supervision to the successful candidate, with input from other staff members.


The successful student should be enrolled in or have just completed training in a Christian seminary.

Duration:  16 weeks – beginning Monday, May 6 to Friday, August 23, 2019.  40 hours per week.
