Children's Ministry Intern
Restoration Church, Amherst, OH

Summary of Position- Do you want to make disciples of unchurched Children?  Are you willing to think creatively to adapt ministry to environments where lost people already are?  Restoration Church needs you.  Dan Samms is a pastor with years of ministry experience in large-churches.  He and his team have planted a church for people who feel like they don't fit in at church.  Most of the attendees are new or non Christians who have been drawn by the Holy Spirit.  Nothing is conventional.  We meet in bars, coffee houses, homes, and other places to make disciples as we build a network of house churches that will come together for monthly, large-scale worship services.  We believe that everybody can make disciples and design everything for that purpose.  We need someone to work directly with our lead pastor (Dan) to oversee development of Children's Ministry in a house-church network setting.  The position will primarily involve direct ministry to children but will also include some strategic development and volunteer management.  It is an ideal training position that will be a powerful resume addition.  The position is currently unpaid.  However, the church is growing steadily.  

How to Apply-Email Pastor Dan Samms (dan@restorationamherst.org)

Our Internship Program allows you to integrate your faith with work, relationships, and life where God will use you in incredible ways in the lives of students.

One Year Internship: 

Youth For Christ has 4 areas of ministry that an intern would be involved in over the year. They include: 

1.   Campus Life: This is a club on Public School campuses that reaches out to the unchurched students. We spend time on the campus, with the students, in the lunchroom and other events in order to share the life changing message of Jesus Christ.

2.   YFC  Leadership  Meetings:  These meetings are held on the same campuses that we run Campus Life outreaches. These meetings are for Christian Students only. In these meetings we prepare our Christian Students and new converts to do campus ministry. These meetings average 10-30 students and are held weekly. 

3.   The Xtreme: This is a faith based teen center that is open every Saturday night for middle and high school students. We currently have two locations, in order to accommodate the different areas the students live in. We have a skate park, video games, dance floor, Christian music, basketball court, and much more. The students come and hang out with their friends and during the evening we have "halftime" where we share a Christ centered message with the Students. 

4.   Juvenile Justice (JJM): Each week we visit 3 Youth Detention centers to share the life changing message of Jesus Christ. We are there to listen and to show the students that we care about them, even when they make mistakes. 

We have room for up to 3 interns from around the country for this program, which begins July 22, 2015 and ends July 31, 2016. These starting and ending dates are flexible. We will pay each intern a salary of $800.00 per month, plus provide FREE housing, as well as an auto allowance.

Youth for Christ is searching for well-qualified applicants who have a heart for service to the youth and an enthusiasm to work hands-on with them. A flexible schedule and the ability to teach the application of Biblical principles are required.
