James River Church

Pastoral Intern

January 2019 • Springfield, MO

What I liked

I had the opportunity to be fully engaged in the ministry of James River Church. I was given many pastoral-level projects to complete and would receive feedback. It was great to be in an environment of constant growth and belonging. I have become very close to many of the staff and have many references for my resume now.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have set limits on my availability. I went home (to Wisconsin) for only 1 week this summer as I felt I needed to be at the church as much as possible. I also only worked one day a week getting paid which made finances very limited. However, the experience was worth not having very much income.

Advice

If you apply yourself, staff will notice. Being present is also super important. You cant be asked to do anything if you are never around.
