The internship is open to those over the age of 18. This includes those just out of education to those in retirement.
The nature of the internship is to help develop both church-based ministry and community-based outreach alongside a taste of regional mission and ministry. This would be determined in conversation between the church and the intern, seeking to balance the needs of the church with the gifts and passions of the intern.
Over a 10 month period the intern and church will complete reflections on the process, what God is doing and to help identify opportunities, needs and further areas of development. The SWBA will seek to ensure good communication between association, church and intern.
We see this as a partnership between a Baptist Church and the SWBA.
