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.
