Each year, Houston’s First Baptist Church’s Missions Office hosts a summer Internship for college students, a two-month investment program. The Internship is dedicated to developing current and future kingdom leaders by enabling them to be a part of some of Houston’s best ministry work and exposing them to incredible teaching and intentional community.
Our program is an investment. You are not mere workhorses for our ministry purposes; investing in you is our ministry purpose. Our team wants to equip and empower college students to live out the Gospel wherever God might be taking them.
Each day will be different. A typical day in The Internship will reflect the season the program is in (There are typically 3 seasons each summer: learning, resting, and ministry). Nonetheless, a normal day could look like this:
Some days will feature little to no free time, while other days will feature a whole free day to live, read and enjoy community.
You don’t. Interns will live one day at a time—the find out the schedule for their next day the night before.
In the heart of our city in an area call The Heights. It is a unique area that is inhabited with hipsters and young professionals. Likewise, it is filled with architecture, Mom & Pop shops, trendy restaurants, and Houston’s premier coffee shops.
Interns will typically get one day off each week. Request for additional days off for situations like family reunions and weddings (and other related events) will be evaluate on a case by case basis by the director.
All meals are provided, except for meals on your days off.
A vehicle is not required but can be beneficial on your days off. Interns will travel together all summer in a comfortable van.
Upon acceptance you will receive a list of what to bring.
