Pastoral Intern - Summer 2018
Contact Person: Jan Mutter, Family Life Pastor
Philpott Memorial Church is an evangelical church, belonging to the Associated Gospel Churches, situated in downtown Hamilton. We are looking for a theological student to complete a 4-month summer internship at our church. We want to offer a seminary student the opportunity to develop church ministry skills, based on their area(s) of interest. We believe that our church is situated in a unique place to offer a variety of experiences.
With the exception of vacation coverage in youth ministry, we are prepared to design this job based around the student’s interests. Our church staff will provide supervision to the successful candidate in the areas of: urban ministry, worship arts, pastoral care, teaching/preaching, and/or intergenerational family ministry.
1. Vacation Coverage: Prepare and lead Friday evening youth events and youth Sunday School for 6 weeks when our youth pastor is away in May and June. This will be done with the help of volunteers.
2. In conjunction with pastoral staff, determine areas of ministry the successful candidate wishes to develop in over the summer.
[Note: Our Family Life Ministry is developing catechism tools for use with children and youth. This project is available for a student who would like to develop curriculum.]
3. Based on the agreed plan, work in these areas of ministry with supervision from pastoral staff.
The successful student should be enrolled in or have just completed training in a Christian seminary.
DATES: 16 weeks – beginning Monday May 14 – Friday August 31st
Please submit a resume and cover letter to Jan Mutter, Family Life Pastor by March 30th, 2018
