Summer Internships

About the Opportunity:

Internships at a Glance

Summers are a huge opportunity for ministry experience at Westover Church! There are numerous events, camps and trips designed to enhance our interns’ faith walk, as they partner with ministry staff to see God work through our participants’ lives and programs!  With this increase in activity, the role of interns and the assistance they provide is vital to our ministry efforts at Westover. 

We currently offer internships in three different ministry areas: 

  • Westover Kids (birth-5th grade)
  • Students
    1. Impact (Middle School)

    2. 9th Grade Crossover  

  • Global Ministries (Missions)

The specifics of each internship may be adjusted to fit the strengths and passions of the intern, but you can click on the ministry specific links below to see a list of potential events and responsibilities. We do ask that applicants prayerfully consider this process and limit their application to a maximum of two ministry areas; we seek to match you not just with a position to fill your summer, but one which you feel the Lord may be calling you to or has gifted you for!
