OUR SUMMER INTERNSHIP

The summer youth internship is a position that will enable the youth ministry of FPCOS to fulfill its mission, which is to Love Jesus, Grow in Grace, and Serve Others. Interns will assist in planning, preparation and implementation of summer activities and events for the youth ministry of FPCOS. This internship is open to all college students.

We are looking for personable and approachable college students. Someone who passionately loves Jesus and wants to spend their summer building relationships with students to help them grow in Christ. The summer internship is a great opportunity for you to participate in hands-on ministry in the context of the local church, but also to discern and develop your calling and giftedness. In addition, the internship offers one-to-one care from the youth and pastoral staff to encourage and equip you in life and in ministry.
