Internship Details

The salary for a part-time intern (20 hours weekly) is $2400 for the 10 week program.

Costs and Expenses: You are responsible for your own transportation, food or any outside entertainment. When working with children, youth or church events, ministry budgets will provide needs during those specific occasions.

Housing: If you do not live in the Gulf Breeze area, we will assist you in finding a host home for the summer at no cost to you. We will need to know in advance that you need a place to stay during the internship.

Who is the average applicant? Applicants should be at least high school graduates with some ministry experience looking to be mentored and trained before eventually going into full time or part-time ministry.

Can I work at the same time? Every financial situation is different and we desire to be sensitive. We prefer that interns do not work because of the time commitment and schedule requirements. However, in unique circumstances we will allow for a part-time job if it does not interfere with summer program requirements.

Location: Community Life UMC in Gulf Breeze, Florida. Visit our website at clc.life for more information on who we are and our mission.

Program Schedule: Please note this is subject to change during weeks such as Vacation Bible School, youth outreach and the needs of any church events.
