What is Internship?

The Westover Hills Volunteer Internship is a semester-long, behind-the-scenes look at what we do in ministry at Westover Hills Church. If you think you may be called to church ministry or are just interested in getting more involved, this internship offers weekly leadership lessons, Bible study time, personal accountability, & means for you to grow as a leader & disciple of Jesus. Plus, it’s a great way to make meaningful relationships with other students & young adults like you. When do we meet? I’m glad you asked! Check out meeting hours and dates below. 

Each week may look a little different. Most of the time, during the Family Ministry internship, we’ll be working on different projects, like: planning services & upcoming events, writing “Thank You Cards” for guests, working in various roles throughout the ministry during weekend services, cleaning various rooms & areas, stacking chairs, calling students and inviting them to a service, updating our online database, setting up games & gathering supplies, making copies, lifting & moving materials for events & services. For our Sports Ministries, we’ll be doing a lot of setup/teardown on the Sports Fields, errands during these events, & ensuring these events run smoothly. For the Administration Team, there will be a lot of backend computer work (think spreadsheets & software) that help the church run smoothly. In other words… there’s really no such thing as a “normal week” as an Intern. 

If you are interested in serving as a volunteer intern at Westover Hills, then please take a moment to fill out this application in its entirety. This form will give us the important contact information we need to reach you & let you know whether or not you will be a part of this semester’s internship. Thank you so much for your interest!

We believe that ministry is about people, this is why it is a requirement for: weekend interns to be present every weekend for kids & student services & at all Family Ministry Events, & for speciality interns to be present at special events, as well - these are the most optimal times we have to connect with kids, students, & families to help begin the process of making disciples in real-time.

  • All Weekend Interns are encouraged to attend all Family Ministry Events on-campus & off-campus (All Weekend Services, All Family Ministry Events) - make sure a parent, friend, or other family member is willing to give you a ride to/ from each intern meeting before agreeing to this internship
  • All Speciality Interns are required to attend Intern Investments, along with Special Events - make sure a parent, friend, or other family member is willing to give you a ride to/ from each intern meeting before agreeing to this internship
  • If an intern is unable to attend any Ministry Event or Internship Meeting for any reason, the intern is required to let their supervisor know a week in advance & provide a viable reason
  • All interns are required to attend at least 1 weekend service per week
