Internships (2017-2018)

2017-2018 Internship Program

Growing leaders. Together. In the heart of the city.

We are hiring a cohort of four interns to begin working at First Baptist Church August 1st, 2017. Each internship position is paid, and designed to help develop new leaders and advance the way we engage in ministry. We want to provide an excellent training opportunity, as we do excellent work together.

The internships will operate as a cohort and will include a weekly meeting together for prayer, training, and development. The overall internship program will be directed by Jeremy Adelman, the Adult Ministries Pastor, with specific ministry oversight by the pastor responsible for the intern’s ministry area.

Throughout the year, each intern will have the opportunity to grow as they work alongside one another, the pastoral staff, lay leaders and members of the First Baptist Church community. We are excited for you to consider applying for one of our four positions. The positions are as follows:

  • Serve Local Intern
  • Worship Ministry Intern
  • Children’s Ministry Intern
  • Missions Intern

Position specific job postings can be found on the following pages. Resumes and cover letters are due to Pastor Jeremy Adelman at by June 11th, 2017.
