Summer Mission Intern Program

The mission of the Summer Mission Intern Program is to provide hands-on opportunities for young adults to make a difference in the world by serving out of a deep level of their Christian faith, particularly with children and youth in under-served communities. Summer Mission Interns serve in a variety of Christian community day camps and outreach ministries within The Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church, including CROS Ministries, Grace Place for Children and Families and Riverside Retreat, among others.

The duration of the internship is 10 weeks (May 31 - August 7, 2015). A $2,250 stipend and housing with a host family (if not living at home or current residence is not within reasonable driving distance of assigned ministry site) are provided. Young adults ages 19 (by 8/31/15) - 25, who are eager to be part of God’s transformative work in local communities are encouraged to apply. Submit completed application, recommendation letter, and resume via email to Shelly Denmark, Program Director sdenmark@flumc.org by May 1, 2015. For more information about the Summer Mission Intern Program or questions regarding the application, please contact Shelly Denmark at the email address listed above.

Training is provided to the interns at the pre-summer retreat (May 31-June 2) as well as in-service training by the outreach ministries. Supervision and mentoring is provided by Conference and outreach ministry staff throughout the summer.
