Internship Opportunties

Creative Arts

As a Creative Arts Intern, you will be part of a team that crafts weekend services through creative means. Learn the art of architecting a service that uses music, story, and art to introduce people to Jesus. Through this Internship, you will be given the opportunity to be part of the creative process as you brainstorm, plan out, and develop ideas. Learn to do the work of not only using creativity to share a message but also having a clear understanding of the “how” and “why” behind the message that you’re communicating. This is not just about creativity and skills training—you will be developed as a leader while growing as a Christ-follower.

Connections

As a Connections Intern, you’ll help people connect with God, significant relationships, and meaningful service. The Connections team works with people where they are and supports them in taking steps toward their divine design. Connections Interns resource and learn from multiple team members to achieve the Connection Ministry’s and Eikon Church’s mission. We’re looking for passionate, creative thinkers who are willing to learn to handle a variety of responsibilities with excellence. This experience will inspire your Pastoral gifts, challenge you toward growth, and exercise your ability to strategize, develop, and follow systems.

You will learn how to work on a team and receive one-on-one training on how to be the best youth worker possible!

Worship

As a Worship Intern, you’ll gain experience with preparing and helping execute plans for weekly worship rehearsals. You will also be able to develop a working knowledge and understanding of biblical worship principles. As you do this you’ll learn to effectively apply these principles in various congregational and cultural contexts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why intern?

An Eikon internship is an opportunity for you to join our team, serve in our church, and use your skills. In turn, we help you develop those skills, develop as a person, and pour into you spiritually. We want to help you grow and develop while you serve the local church.

How long is the internship?

The internship starts August 1st, 2018 and ends July 31st, 2019.

What does a normal week look like?

Intern positions will require a time commitment of around 32 hours per week (Monday – Thursday), plus serving on Sundays. The weekly routine will vary depending on the Intern’s ministry area and the needs of the specific Intern position. However, all interns will have classes such as Leadership Development, Book discussions, 1-on-1 discipleship, and staff meetings as part of their weekly schedule.

Is this a paid internship?

The Eikon internship is not a paid internship.

Am I allowed to work an outside job?

Yes, interns are allowed to work an outside job. However, the internship must remain the priority. You will be required to be at the office certain hours each week, as well as helping with all Eikon events. For this reason, some interns prefer to raise support during their internship rather than working a job.

Will I be able to take any time off?

You are able to request time off as needed. We ask that you request time off at least 30 days in advance. In addition, all staff has time off the last week of the year.

Does Eikon provide housing?

We do not provide intern housing. It is up to each individual to find their own housing. Occasionally members of Eikon Church will house an intern during their internship. Those housing opportunities are on a case by case basis to help ensure the right fit for both parties. If you are accepted into the internship, please let us know right away if you need housing and we will help as much as we can, but again it is up to each intern to find their own housing.

How can I get college credit?

Although we do not offer college credit, if your college or university offers Internship opportunities, we will work directly with your counselors and/or professors to help ensure you meet all the necessary requirements.
