  • Begins Saturday, June 1 and continues through Monday, July 29.

Description of the Immerse Internship: Interns will play a key role in the Immerse program. They will help lead devotional times, serve at the various sites, utilize opportunities to coach and mentor Middle School and High School participants, and use their unique gifts, abilities, and skills in a variety of ways. We are searching for individuals with a heart for God, a desire to do ministry with High School and Middle School students, and a teachable heart. A skill and/or interest in any of the following areas would be helpful: sports ministry, music ministry, children’s ministry, teaching, cooking, mentoring, construction, leadership, photography, or just having fun and connecting with people.

Description of the ministry: Immerse is a ministry trip designed to engage the hearts and minds of Middle School and High School youth. Youth groups will come to Lincoln, Nebraska and serve alongside the local Church and various Organizations seeking to bring about restoration and hope to the hurting. Each day, time will be devoted to personal devotions, service, training, testimonies, and debriefing. Groups will serve at-risk children and teenagers, homeless, working-class poor, incarcerated, refugees, and those struggling with substance abuse. Immerse will raise awareness and challenge students to deepen their relationship with Christ, understand their gifting, and respond to God’s call in their lives. Participants will stay at the F Street Neighborhood Church in downtown Lincoln.

Internship Expectations:  The Internship will be for the months of June and July. Interns will serve as hosts to several youth groups participating in the Immerse program, accompanying groups to service sites and participating in training and devotional times. They will engage in a week of orientation in the beginning of June and be available during the weeks that we have Immerse teams in town. Our hope is that they will also engage in the community of F Street Neighborhood Church. Interns will also be engaged in training, development, and preparation for the teams. Their schedule will be somewhat flexible on the weeks that we do not have an Immerse group in town.

Applicants with a heart for God and a heart for youth are encouraged to apply!

Compensation: Interns will receive weekly discipleship and ministry training, free lodging at an “Intern House” in the neighborhood, a stipend of $1500, and an exciting experience serving with Immerse students throughout the Lincoln and Omaha area. We believe this will be a fun summer of learning and growing in a diverse ministry setting.
