We are amazed at what God is doing among us at CLM and we are excited as He leads us further on, going deeper into Him and reaching wider into our city and beyond. As part of our development plans, in September 2019, we are delighted to have launched an 11-month Voluntary Internship Programme, giving four individuals the opportunity to serve God at the front-line of ministry as an integrated member of our church staff team.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our internship programme runs from the beginning of September to the end of July. Interns serve a full day every Sunday, hands-on, as part of the CLM team. They then also serve, office-based, on a further two or three days per week, assigned to a couple of our ministry areas to gain experience. The remaining three or four days each week are there for the interns to take a ‘sabbath-rest’ day and to earn money outside of CLM to help finance the year.
This year we have assigned each intern to at least two of the following ministries: Multi-media; Youth; Children; Students; Administration; Prayer and Missions. Each intern is assigned an overseer for their ‘work’ and mentor for their support and development. It is really important to us that they not only contribute to the ministries in a meaningful way, but also that the year is developmental for them - enabling them to grow personally and spiritually. There are times of development and input, stretching assignments and responsibilities and opportunities to engage with CLM’s Leadership Development Track. Serving alongside the staff team gives the interns unique ‘access’ to the leaders and the experience of seeing how ‘ministry’ is outworked in practice.
Applications for our 2020/2021 Internship programme will open in Spring 2020, but please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions by e-mailing: email@example.com
