Internship Info For Churches

So your church or organizations needs an intern?

IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW

#1 – Internship for credit
If one of our students needs an internship for credit in order to graduate, the internship must be fully supervised.  In other words, a student seeking a Youth Ministry degree must be advised by a full-time, on-site Youth Minister. The purpose of an internship is not to fill a void in your staff.

#2 – Internship timing
Our students typically do a 12-week summer internship for three credits or a seven-month internship for nine credits.  These start either in June or January.  Occasionally, we have permitted a 12-month internship for 12 credits.

#3- Payment
Payment varies from place to place.  Please remember the intern will have needs while performing their internship and will have to pay tuition for the internship: over $1,200 for the three-hour summer internship and over $3,000 for the seven-month internship.

#4 – How do we get an intern?
It is the student’s responsibility to find an internship; the university does not assign them. See below for ways you can recruit a potential CCU intern.

What you can do:

  1. Send your internship requirements to the Director of Service Learning through an email [below].  Once your email is received it will be posted on the internship board, emailed to the student body once a week, and verbally communicated to those looking for an internship.
  2. You can come to the university to recruit.  We will provide you a table outside of the dining hall for you to meet and talk to our students.  You can   call Student Life at (513) 244-8150 to arrange for the table.  A lot of churches and organization find this the most productive way to get interns.

If you have any further questions, please contact Bill Baumgardner, Director of Service Learning at bill.baumgardner@ccuniversity.edu or (513) 244-8107.
