Disciples Volunteering seeks applicants for summer internships, to serve with mission partners across the country. With a primary focus on Leadership Development, interns may host volunteer groups in mission settings, face cross-cultural issues, engage diverse groups of people, serve in hands-on mission experiences through the church, provide leadership within a congregational setting, and help church groups make justice connections between the mission site and their home churches.
Each intern can expect individual supervision and opportunities for reflection on personal, spiritual, and social justice issues. Some interns may also earn college or seminary Field Education credit.
Preference will be given to members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) or the United Church of Christ.
Applicants must be age 20 to 27 (as of Memorial Day) and be available for placement without interruption from late May to mid-August.
Each intern earns a stipend of $2,500, sponsored through DHM and Week of Compassion. Travel is also provided. Lodging is made available through the local partner.
For additional information contact: Brenda Tyler at (317) 713-2642.
Applications will be received until all positions are filled.
