Nu‘uanu Congregational Church and United Church of Christ-Judd Street invites four college students to serve as summer interns during the summer of 2017 for 10 weeks, from May 30 to August 6. The purpose of the internship program is to provide formational space in which college students can explore the connection between their faith and vocation as they learn to serve God. The internship will offer a broad and thoughtful experience in ministry by exposing the interns to a wide-range of ministries at Nu‘uanu Congregational Church and United Church of Christ-Judd Street such as: worship leadership; leading Bible study for children, youth, and adults; visiting members; engaging in church facilities maintenance; leading the Youth Mission Trip, etc. Through it all, the interns will have opportunities to develop and deepen relationships with one another and with members and friends of the congregation. Furthermore, these experiences will form the basis for reflection on their own vocational calling through written papers and intentional conversations with pastors, mentors, and peers.
During these 10 weeks, each intern is expected to work 19 hours/week at the church and doing “homework” i.e. preparing for worship, writing reflection papers, etc. Each intern will be remunerated for the 10-week internship.
Preference for these positions is given in following order: Nu‘uanu Congregational Church and United Church of Christ-Judd Street members/friends, members of Hawaii Conference UCC congregations, member of other Hawaii congregations, members of other Christian churches. Interns must have completed 1-year of college and must be at least 18-years old by June 4, 2017.
