Internship in Older Adult Ministry
First United Church of Christ, Marion, OH

The congregation of First UCC (mission: to grow in Christian love through mission, education, service and celebration) and United Church Homes (mission: to transform Aging by building a culture of community, wholeness and peace) are collaborating to sponsor an energetic intern to plan, facilitate, travel with and create opportunities for a parish based ministry for older adults to learn, explore, serve and grow in their faith.

We want to offer workshop and retreat options to explore and discover diverse and interesting topics. These topics might be in spiritual seeking, service to others locally and hands on learning to expand understanding and build compassion. This intern will also encourage participants to become involved in community projects (and beyond). The scope of this project does depend somewhat on the interest and experience of the intern, as well as the participants. A major goal is to raise awareness of older adult ministry and connect the church to other organizations in a variety of fields that bring quality of life to the whole person and contribute to the community as a whole.

The intern will work with both UCH and First UCC identifying our target audience and how best to cultivate this population for this project.  Both organizations will work together to develop ideas, scope and depth and to provide supervision and support.

First UCC will have a committee for supervision of the intern and the field education program, and the pastor will supervise the intern on a weekly basis. First UCC will work with the intern to write the initial learning /serving contract with feedback and input from UCH.  First UCC will provide office space and opportunities at a parish level according to the intern’s interest, including some interaction with the Sunday morning worship experience.  The majority of programming will occur (gather) at First UCC.

UCH will also offer limited hands on experience in a current low income senior housing complex to work with residents and introduce some new programming options.  UCH may be able to open doors to experts in fields (healthcare and other services) for possible community outreach.

The intern will work 20 hours per week from September 1 through May 31 (negotiable).  The intern will be involved in research, interviewing, planning workshops, community awareness events, retreats, and possibly day trips or a mission trip for older adults.    Compensation will be $13 per hour/ mileage reimbursement / opportunity to attend professional meetings with cost for this covered by the church. 

If this sounds like you, please contact Pastor Gale Green at firstuccmarion@gmail.com  or call 740-382-4537 for information about our new Older Adult Ministry Internship. This is a joint effort of First UCC and United Church Homes, a faith-based sponsor of health care, affordable housing, and other services for older adults.  Both organizations are based in Marion, Ohio.

Youth Intern
St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Lewis Center, OH

St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, located in Lewis Center, Ohio, is currently looking for a part-time youth intern.  We are a Liturgical and Evangelical Church with traditional and contemporary worship services.  We have a small, but active youth group with potential to grow in this high growth area of Columbus.  The main focus of the internship is to lead our middle school and high school youth program during their weekly meeting.  We have several volunteer helpers, some who even teach our Sunday morning program, so time commitment can be as little as a few hours a week, plus any special events. 

We are hoping for a person who wants to volunteer for internship or field study hours that could lead to a more permanent part-time paying position if the candidate is a good fit.  We have a small staff, so the intern has the potential to gain as much experience in several areas of ministry as he or she likes, including children and family ministries, as well as sermon giving from time to time.  Interns do not need to be Anglican, but should be sensitive and respectful to the Anglican theology and beliefs.

Lead Pastor
Grace Bible Church, Elmhurst, IL
March 9, 2015
Lead Pastor
Grace Bible Church, Elmhurst, IL

Grace Bible Church is seeking a lead pastor who loves the Lord and is following him.  We are looking for him to equip the men and women of our church to do the work of service so that we know the Lord, are living in the love of Christ, and helping others to do the same. 

This pastor, first and foremost, will be following the Lord, and will be devoted to prayer, worship, and Scripture study both personally and as a part of his ministry.  This pastor will also champion the vision of the Lord as Supreme in our lives.  He will regularly exhort a broad audience to believe in the Lord, turn from sin, and follow Him.  We expect him to do this by preaching most Sunday mornings, and by delivering messages that magnify the Lord and articulate truths of Scriptures with depth and precision. 

Furthermore, this pastor will equip the men and women of our church to make disciples with the result that more and more people in our church and community know the Lord, walk in obedience to Him, and invest in the lives of others so that they also make disciples.  This pastor will meet regularly with church leaders and members, individually or in small groups, to teach them, challenge them to greater steps of faith and obedience, encourage and support them in their walk with the Lord, and hold them accountable to the standard of this walk.  He will help individuals discern their spiritual gifts, challenge them to step up, and deploy them where they will be most effective in ministry.  He will also work with leadership to align ministries so they are effective in helping others follow the Lord. 

Grace Bible Church is not looking for a lead pastor to develop a completely new vision for the church, but rather to model our existing vision, articulate it, and equip us to do it.  Furthermore, we are not looking for a pastor who sees his primary responsibility as preaching sermons; we believe this is an important part of the work that needs to be done, but we must go beyond sermons and put our vision into practice, and we need a shepherd who will guide is in this direction. 

Grace Bible Church is passionate about knowing the Lord, living for Him, and helping others do the same.  We are a non-denominational, congregational church in Elmhurst, Illinois, with approximately 170 people attending our Sunday morning service.  We have a strong core of mature, authentic believers striving to follow the Lord, and a capable, unified team of leaders that include elected church members, an assistant pastor, and a youth pastor.  We have a regular Sunday morning worship service, Sunday School for children and adults, and a large number of ministries that meet during the week.  In addition, Grace Bible Church currently supports 23 missionaries throughout the world.
