One of the important parts of the youth ministry at A&M Church
of Christ is our youth interns. Our interns need to be willing to
serve our students at a level that is more involved than just being
a youth ministry volunteer. They serve our students
and families by developing Godly relationships with our students
and encouraging them to grow deeper in their faith in God.
For the 2022-2023 school year we are looking for guy and girl
interns who love God and are willing to work with our students.
We want to help our 7th-12th grade students have connections with college students who will help them grow in their faith and their love for Jesus.
Being an intern is a huge responsibility because you have the ability to help students grow in faith significantly ...but you also have the ability to hurt a student's faith. It is a role we take very seriously. We want any students who work with our students to have a committed relationship with Jesus and a desire ta serve Him in their every day life.
Serve God...by Working with Students as a
School-year Youth Intern
While it is a role that we do not take lightly, we also believe it's a great opportunity because it allows college students to make a huge impact in the lives of our students. It also allows our interns to get to know people from our church who they might otherwise not meet in their years at our church. In other words - you get to be a part of our church in a different way than if you are just connected as an AFC student each week.
School year internships are obviously different than summer internships because of commitments you have with classes...and because of the schedules of our middle and high school students. Depending on your personal schedule, you may went to get very involved in youth ministry or involved at lesser level, yet still work with students as an intern. Regardless, it's a very part-time position which mainly happens during times students are at church. There are a few activities like a retreat or game night which you can come to if your schedule allows.
For our all-in interns, we like involvement in our Sunday morning, Sunday evening and Wednesday night
classes. If your schedule does not allow, then you could be primarily a Sunday intern or a Wednesday intern.
(but you could come other times as your schedule allows) Our intern role is primarily a relational role - rarely
are our interns asked to teach...but we are open to it if teaching is something you are good at.
We understand that travel plans or weekend trips can take you away from B/CS some weekends. That's
completely fine. We try to work with everyone's schedule to make sure we have at least some of our interns
at every class or event, if possible. During the TAMU Christmas break and Spring break, interns are not
expected to work with us.
While this opportunity should be something that you would do only out of love for Gad and a desire to serve Him, our interns do earn a small salary each month.
If this is something you might he interested in, we'll be glad to send you a job description with the details about the internship. We ask that vou pray about this opportunity. Then we can meet together and talk additional details and take the next steps in the selection process.
Thanks for taking time to read this info.
Let Monty or Heather know if you have any questions or if you'd be willing to talk about this opportunity.
