WORSHIP AND PROGRAMMING

WHAT WORSHIP AND PROGRAMMING IS ALL ABOUT

Through a Next Step Worship and Programming Internship, you get the opportunity to be submerged in a new culture, while gaining the understanding of what it means to cultivate a lifestyle of worship beyond the music industry. You will lead more than fifty nights of worship for hundreds of students and community members over the course of nine weeks of mission trips. We believe music transcends language and culture. Through this internship you will be given the chance to use your passion for music and the arts to direct people towards Christ.

WHY NEXT STEP?

HANDS ON EXPERIENCE

Throughout the summer you will have the opportunity to facilitate programming five nights a week, for nine weeks. That’s 45 times that you’ll get to see and be a part of sharing the love of Jesus in creative outlets, while leading various service projects in a community you will grow to love.  We truly believe that no person can stay the same when encountered by the love of Jesus, and as a programming team, you get to see this first hand. How cool is that?

RESUME BUILDER

Whether you are pursuing worship, youth ministry, or missions, the experience you receive from this internship will set you apart in your career search. You will be placed and developed in a leadership role, which many churches seek out for their next hire. With this experience, our past interns have gone on to various leadership roles in churches across the country, and would agree that this internship helped prepare them for their careers in ministry.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

As a programming intern, you will gain invaluable ministry leadership skills, and lead hundreds of students each week from all over the country. Whether you are leading a construction project, serving dinner, sharing your story or leading worship, this internship challenges you to develop a better understanding of what it means to live a lifestyle of worship. You can expect tangible growth, and a developed idea of what it means to be a leader in ministry.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to serve alongside a community for the entire summer. This service will go far beyond the physical construction project that you will be involved with. You will also have the chance to build memorable and lasting relationships with community members. These relationships will impact your life in ways you never expected as you grow in a deeper understanding of what it means to be in community.
