  • Experience in specific areas of interest.

Other Aspects of the Internship:

  • College interns will be paid at a rate of $12/hour.
  • High School interns will be paid at a rate of $10/hour

For the summer of 2019 Good Shepherd will be hiring college interns in two specific areas of ministry:

  • Program Ministry: One college intern at 40 hours per week will be hired. Their focus will be on day camps, children and youth events, inreach fellowship events, and some special outreach events over the course of the summer. They will also receive First Aid and CPR training if they are not currently certified. [Inreach is anything that is intended to connect existing congregation members with one another.]
  • Communications and Technology: One college intern at 40 hours per week will be hired. Their focus will be on website development, video recording and editing, and electronic communications.

The high school interns will work with the Director of Children’s Ministry and the Director of Youth Ministry in the planning and implementation of Good Shepherd’s Summer Day Camp Programs and middle school youth events.  High School interns will also work under the guidance of a college-age Program Ministry intern.  The focus is placed on serving, leading, teaching and building relationships with the children and families who attend camps and summer events.  This is a 12-20 hour/week position for 8 weeks (June-August). Applicants should currently be a sophomore, junior or senior in the 2018-19 school year.  All applicants must have reliable transportation to Good Shepherd’s Madison and Verona campuses.

Note that applicants are welcome to submit their resume with their application but are not required to do so.
