If you are ready to serve but are not able to leave the country this summer, our Nashville Internship might be just right for you. You'll be exposed to some of the neediest populations in Nashville, learn what skills you have to help, and get the opportunity to do them every day! You'll be challenged to not only serve, but lead others in service by helping on the organizational side of our service. You will be invested into by other believers doing their best to fulfill God's Will, and learn more about yourself in the process.
Summer Internships are a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks. They are full-time, and in Nashville. Internships are not paid. Travel costs and arrangements are the responsibility of the intern.
The following skills are helpful: good with children, multimedia (photography or video), written communications, food production, building, landscaping, music, drama, finance, design, sports.
What will you get out of this experience?
Besides the experience of working with some of the most wonderful people you’ve ever met, you’ll gain experience in the following areas: cross-cultural communications, photography and video (if interested), counseling, event planning, kids programming, drama, youth ministry, sports ministry, public speaking, worship leading, and working with teams.
You'll also gain a spiritual experience. Your time in Nashville will be spent alongside believers who are committed to serving the Lord. Bible Study, worship and prayer will happen on a regular basis. You'll learn more about what SLAM does, but also how we do it, based on God's Word. This internship isn't for those just looking for occupational development, it is primarily for those interested in a life of ministry (service).
