Internships

NXT Kids Summer Internship

The goal of the Summer Internship Program for NXT Kids is to expose student ministry workers to vocational Christian ministry. Due to the relatively short period of time that an intern will be serving, the internship will only be able to show a “glimpse” of full-time church ministry, specializing in children’s ministry. The hope is to share principles that will affect the intern’s future ministry and life. 

A holistic approach to preparation is the goal; we hope our interns will grow in spiritual, emotional, relational, and ministry preparedness. Interns need to understand that the focus will be on personal growth, not just productivity. They will be expected to come with a willingness and openness to change and grow as their experiences provide the opportunity to do so. 

The idea of the Summer Internship Program is based on hands-on ministry in an environment for success and growth. It is a place of learning and testing. More important than outlines and information is the opportunity for the intern to spend hours with individuals who have ministry experience and the desire to speak into your life in preparation for the road ahead. 

The NXT Kids Internship Program exists for three main purposes; Personal Growth, Leadership Development, and Ministry Experience. 

Personal Growth

We believe every single person deserves the opportunity to know God and His plan for their life. It is our goal to encourage one another to take steps towards spiritual growth. As we do, God’s plan for our life becomes more and more clear. Our internship program is designed to help you learn more about God’s incredible love for you, while learning just how uniquely designed you are! This will happen through required reading, prayer and devotional times, as well as opportunities to use your talents, abilities, and gifts in a ministry setting. In many cases, ministry has been professionalized to the point of ineffectiveness. Lifestyle counts in pastoral ministry! Any amount of learning will be useless unless accompanied by a spiritual brokenness before God and men, and obedience to the Holy Spirit. Emotional equipping is as important as intellectual. Our goal is for the Summer Intern to pursue wholeness through Christ. This will require openness and trust on the part of the Intern.

A student can plan on:

I. Meeting with an NXT Kids Staff Member weekly around the
conversation of personal growth.
II. Consistent personal spiritual development through a regular
devotional life and participation in the worship and life of
Calvary Church.
III. Maintaining good speech, dress, manner, and relationships.
IV. Keeping a journal of field experience: programs planned,
services conducted, talks, sermons, anecdotes, failures, and
successes.

Leadership Development
Whether learning a skill for future church ministry, or learning a skill that will help you through life, the NXT Kids Internship Program will help you learn how to design, develop, manage, and implement various programs, events, and teachings. Every intern will be expected to make a concerted effort to grow in their leadership ability. Reading, research, interviews, training sessions, as well as hands-on experience, will further develop the leadership skills in the intern’s life. Interns will
have a required reading schedule and will participate in group devotions. Interns will be stretched to be the leader God designed them to be.

NXT Kids Interns will:

I. Accompany a pastor or staff member in making
hospital visits.
II. Pray with families.
III. Prayer with Pastors and Directors
IV. Learn various office and administrative skills:
a. Financial Management
b. Communication
c. Staff Meetings

Ministry Experience
The NXT Kids Internship Program offers the opportunity for every intern to experience the complete planning and implementation of various programs designed for conducting ministry. Each week, interns will pray with kids, interact with volunteers, and learn to work alongside like-minded staff members. This internship will be part of NXT Kids but will offer the opportunity to experience overall church ministry. The idea of the Summer Internship Program is based on hands-on ministry in an environment for success and growth. It is a place of learning and testing. More important than outlines and information is the opportunity for the intern to spend hours with individuals who have ministry experience and the desire to speak into your life in preparation for the road ahead.

Interns will grow in this through:

I. Developing Curriculum
II. Lead PRE Service Small Groups with Specialists
III. Evaluate the effectiveness of programs
IV. Utilize gifts to enhance the ministry experience

INTERNSHIP BASICS
