Summer Intern Applications

We are currently accepting applications for a two-month internship during the summer of 2014.  As a faith community, this will be our first experience sponsoring an intern, and in so doing we hope to craft a meaningful experience by providing an intern with helpful interaction regarding their work and partnering them with both a support team and a mentor.

Covenant describes itself as a contemplative Christian community, and we are indeed on that journey. We are a small church with one pastor, Kyndall Rothaus, and we are looking for someone to sojourn alongside us this summer.

Applicants should be either in seminary or nearing their undergraduate graduation and preparing to enter seminary.  The internship will involve assisting the pastor in a variety of ministry related activities, such as worship planning, children’s programming, providing creative input, and completing administrative tasks, but the role will also be shaped to fit some of the intern’s own ministry interests.  A modest stipend and housing will be provided. Applicants should send a résumé with a cover letter to info@covenantbaptist.org by April 5, 2014.
