The Rock Ministries Internship program is designed for those 18 and older with a passion for ministry. It is a four-month program (three months can be accommodated for college summer break) in which Interns live and work alongside urban missionaries. It is a tremendous opportunity to experience life on America’s urban mission field.
Rock Ministries invites youth in our troubled area to participate in free boxing and grappling lessons, music and art instruction, homework assistance, computer activities, games, and other programs, both within and outside of our facility. We use these activities to bring the community the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are also a church that meets on Sunday and Wednesday. In addition, we reach out to the neighborhood through street witnessing, community Bible studies, a food pantry, a community coffee house, block parties and service work in our area.
Rock interns are involved in all of these ministries. They are also assigned facility maintenance and upkeep responsibilities. Interns are accommodated in a dorm style room with full access to our kitchen and bath facilities. They are overseen by one or more Rock staff who are responsible for their work assignments. Daily devotions and specific discipleship meetings are incorporated into their schedule.
The Rock’s neighborhood is among the poorest in America, with one of the highest crime rates. The adjacent blocks comprise one of the most active drug areas in the country. This means we are surrounded with nearly endless ministry opportunities, but it also means the work is challenging, the hours long, and the commitment demanding. We are seeking Intern applicants with a heart to serve, and are willing to sacrifice their own comforts for the sake of the Gospel. We are especially interested in those who feel a call to the urban mission field. Please prayerfully consider this before applying.
There is a fee associated with the program that covers the cost of supporting the Intern with room and board.
