ISM Internship

The Illinois Student Ministries Internship Program exists to expose college students to different ministries at the district level. It will provide the opportunity to work closely with the ISM office staff, including our District Student Ministries Director, Chris Stanley.

The Internship move in date will be May 8, 2023, with the program running through August 4th, 2023. On-time arrival and completion through the end of the internship time period is REQUIRED!

The ISM Internship is a highly administrative position which will enable students to participate in the behind-the-scenes aspects of district level ministry, especially in youth and children’s camps. Students should show a proficiency in basic computer programs such as Microsoft Word and Excel, and have the ability to learn new computer programs (i.e. the District Camp Software). Students should possess basic inter-personal skills and demonstrate professional telephone etiquette.

Some of the tasks students will be assisting with over the summer include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Assisting with administrative and creative aspects of Illinois district youth and children’s camps.
  • Assisting with administrative responsibilities in the ISM office.
  • Assisting with other district-wide events when applicable.

Students applying to be an ISM Intern are required to complete an internship application along with a one page essay answering the following questions:

  • Which area of ministry do you feel the Lord leading you to?
  • What interests you about this internship?
  • What do you feel you can contribute to ISM?
  • What do you expect this internship to do for/in you?

Should your application progress, an interview will be scheduled with the District Student Ministries Director, Chris Stanley. All intern applicants must have a completed pastoral reference on file to be considered. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance no later than April 8th of the internship year.

Please include a recent photograph and a copy of your insurance card along with the essay, pastoral reference and application.
