Mission Interns sought

Mission interns will train together and then will be deployed to one of eight ministry sites around the state of Michigan. They will spend 7.5 weeks serving children and addressing urban and rural poverty.

If you are 18-22 years old and want to have a life-changing summer, apply to be a Mission Intern.

The Mission Intern Program offers young adults age 18-22 the opportunity to serve for eight weeks over the summer at United Methodist congregations and related non-profits across the state of Michigan.

The goals of the Mission Intern Program are:

  1. Develop young adult leaders
  2. Assist United Methodist congregations to be in ministry with their local communities
  3. Answer the challenge of the Bishops’ Initiative on Children and Poverty

Interns serving with congregations will lead summer children’s programs providing academic enrichment and faith based activities.

The 2018 congregational sites include: West Branch UMC, Port Huron: First UMC, Utica UMC, Detroit: Metropolitan UMC, Detroit: Centro Familiar Cristiano, Kalamazoo: First UMC.
 
Interns can also apply to serve at Cass Community Social Services and God’s Country Cooperative Parish.
