Years ago, while I was in seminary I had to find a woman that had my dream job, a woman that was doing what I hoped to be doing once I finished my degree, and ask to shadow her for a semester. I had a desire to write and teach bible studies as well as lead and shepherd other women through a scripture based ministry that crossed generational lines. I needed to find a woman in my church that was leading, teaching, and writing bible studies and I couldn’t find one. Not one.
There was not one woman in my church doing what I believed God has made me to do.
I never want that to happen again as long as I live. I want my generation and the generation behind to be able to find lots of women living out their calling and serving the LORD in these ways. I want the women behind me to see women using their gifts, dreaming, serving, advancing the Kingdom, and spreading the Gospel!
That is why I have created an internship for anyone wanting to be equipped in ministry. This internship is a 2 semester commitment and will be 5-10 hours a week September-November 2018 and January-April 2019. The time will be made up of weekly attendance in women’s bible study both semesters as a leader or coleader, cohort meetings twice a month, reading assignments, podcasts, personal reflections, and meeting with other women in leadership or discipleship relationships. We will meet once in August to get to know each other and go over the expectations and syllabus for the year.
The goal of this internship is to spend the first semester focused on your own spiritual formation and growth, while the second semester will help equip you in specific areas of women’s ministry.
If you are interested in applying for this internship, you can fill out the application here by August 15th.
