Summit Internships

Keeping Students Connected to General Baptists

To facilitate the Mission & Ministry Summit and to provide hands-on leadership training to a few of our General Baptist teens, General Baptist Ministries provides an internship program during the Mission & Ministry Summit.

Young adults at least 16 years of age who are active members of a General Baptist Church may apply to serve as Summit Interns.  An application process is used to aid in the selection of the interns.

Interns must be available to serve throughout the scheduled activities of the Mission & Ministry Summit and must conduct themselves in a courteous, Christian manner at all times.

  • Summit Interns shall assist the Director of Congregational Ministries by:

    1.   Monitoring the needs of the workshop presenters to insure that:
      1. rooms are set up appropriately
      2. needed equipment is in place and in working order (presenters often need assistance connecting laptops to the projectors)
      3. handouts prepared by Congregational Ministries at the request of the  presenters are delivered to the rooms (many presenters prepare and deliver their own handouts)
      4. digital audio recording of workshops are working properly.
      5. equipment/rooms are secure following the final workshop of the day.
    2. Assisting with the details of hosting the Summit such as:
      1. photography (especially Sunday afternoon during registration, in workshop sessions, and in main events)
      2. book table host/cashier
      3. counting and taking attendance at the main sessions
      4. setting up in the main auditorium for evening session giveaways.

Other more specific tasks will be assigned at the Summit setting during an orientation time. In exchange for serving as a Summit Intern, General Baptist Ministries will provide lodging, a $125.00 stipend to cover meals and incidental costs of the intern, and Summit T-shirts if they are available. Interns are responsible for their travel to and from the Summit.
