Ministry Support Intern

May - August 2018 • Diamond, IL

What I liked

I loved working in a ministry environment. This was my second ministry internship, but I have volunteered in various other ministries. Ministry is such a messy environment to work it, but, oh, how it's so worth it. Ministry careers are so much more than just jobs. It's an all encompassing experience. You're coworkers walk alongside you in your life journey, not just your academic and professional career. This also takes some real vulnerability, which takes some time to get used to

What I wish was different

I am graduating this December, so I honestly wish the pay was a little more. I'm having to work three jobs and going to school full time this semester to make up for it. I also wish the environment was a bit more structured.


A piece of advice that I would share is that if you're at all drawn to a career in ministry, do an internship. Just give it a shot. It's an environment like no other. You won't regret it. Even if it's not for you, you'll come out with so much growth.
