Our summer college internship program offers a life transforming experience for leadership development & spiritual growth. The college interns get an opportunity to do student ministry with our local high schools students in our beautiful Golden Isles Community (St. Simons Island/Brunswick). While serving as an intern, college students will be trained & equipped by Christian leaders that make up our genuine Christ centered community.
This full-time paid internship is open to college students and recent college graduates between the ages of 18-25. If you are a local Glynn County student wanting to apply for the college internship, you must have completed 1 year of college before applying. The duration of the internship will be from May 21st – Aug 1st, 2019.
Here is what some former college interns had to say about their experience:
“This summer was one of the best experiences of my life. I met so many people, passionate for Christ and was able to use the gifts the Lord has called me to use to help build His Kingdom. I now have life long friends that I can count on for the rest of my life and ministry experiences that I can use as I grow in my walk with God.” -Quinton Tart 2017
A GP fellow is a highly motivated, teachable, and eager to learn student. This person, who is at least an upperclassman in college and/or 20 years or older, would be a full-time fellow with The Gathering Place who commits to one year of personal and professional growth. The program is designed to help individuals grow in three main ways: to sharpen their leadership skills, to grow spiritually and in their knowledge of Scripture and finally, to grow in professional and career skills.
The work week for this internship would be split up into two segments: 20 hours a week working with The Gathering Place staff and the other 20 hours a week would be spent working at another business or organization. The work at The GP and the work at the professional job site placement would be based on their unique individual skill sets. Each Fellow will receive a custom placement, catered to the gifting, skills and career field interests that each fellow has.
