Intern Job Description
Toni Spence – Director of Children’s Ministries
Children hold a high priority at Hope Chapel. Our children’s ministry accounts for 25-30% of our weekend service attendance. That’s about 300 children coming through our doors each weekend.
Our goal is to present the gospel in a clear, fun, energetic, age-appropriate way so that kids can clearly understand how to have a personal relationship with Jesus, how to grow in their relationship with Him and desire to share their faith with others. We are intentional in not burning out our children’s ministry volunteers and having fun while accomplishing all of the above.
Interns will go through comprehensive hands-on experience in our children’s ministry. At the end of the internship year, you will gain the knowledge and know-how of what it takes to run and keep an active children’s ministry progressing. We will teach you techniques of children’s ministry. What we can’t teach you, what each intern in our ministry needs to come with, is a genuine love for kids. Nothing is more important to children than the love felt from those around them. Many of the lessons we teach will soon be forgotten, but the love that comes from a relationship built over the course of a year will be remembered forever.
If your desire is to go into full-time ministry, and kids are your emphasis, this could be the perfect fit for you. God bless you as you pray and give consideration to being part of our exciting and dynamic ministry program.
Our communication/outreach intern will be working closely with our Member Care Pastor, who oversees the following functions of the church: Communication, Outreach and Marketing, website, social media, and database management, Office and Office volunteer staff, and Event Hospitality.
Junior High Intern 7th-8th grade
Goals, Objectives & Job Descriptions
Goals, Objectives & Job Descriptions
Our desire in the Jr. Hai ministry (Rooted) is to take these students in the most crucial part of their lives. Instead of being molded and shaped by society, we take them and shape them and mold them with the Love of Christ. We meet weekly on Tuesday nights from 6pm to 8pm. This is a place for students to be themselves without the fear of judgment from others. We share Christ through our Bible teachings as the perfect word of God, and join in great worship, through the gifts of members of our church.
We are called Rooted because in Ephesians 3:17 we are told to “be Rooted and grounded in Love” and we feel that it is our calling to show love, mercy, and grace to our students, and in turn they will be firmly Rooted and grounded in Love for God and His Word.
We have many opportunities in Rooted to reach out to our students, such as Discipleship Groups (DG’s), sleepovers, movie nights, serving on the Friday night greeting team, and so on.
We are looking for someone who loves Middle-schoolers, and desires to be around them and embrace the awkwardness of who they are. Also someone who is willing to put fliers together, make monthly calendars, plan sleepovers, and so much more.
So if you desire to increase your love for the Word and Middle schoolers, and want to encourage them to seek the Lord and not the things of this world in a full-time setting, then please consider the internship with Rooted Jr. Hai.
Our biggest event is our annual Hume Hawaii trip that takes place during Spring Break on the North Shore of Oahu. Hume Lake Christian Camps comes and runs the camp on the island of Oahu for the students of Hawaii. Our students in particular have been impacted so much that we continue to attend and it continues to be the highlight of the year.
High School Intern 9th-12th grade
Goals, Objectives & Job Description
The Furnace High School Ministry is a ministry to students grades 9-12 and their parents. We are a community of believers who are committed to loving God and sharing his love with others. Our purpose is to Know God, Grow in the holy Spirit and Go share the love of God in our world. We will do this by owning the great commandment and living the great commission here on Maui, in the islands, and around the world. Come join us as we discover God, and experience His creation together. We meet weekly on Tuesdays for discipleship and for a youth service from 7-9:00 PM on Thursday evenings. We also meet several times throughout the month for fellowship, service/outreach, corporate worship and prayer events. Several times a year we escape for various retreats such as winter and summer camps, leadership retreats and missions trips .
Our desire as a department is to train and equip people for what ministry demands,.. with real life experience coaching and training. After 16 years in youth ministry it is my pleasure to get to train others and share with them tools to be successful in ministry to teens and the church as a whole. I have learned that real experience and continuing education are invaluable as you pursue Gods purpose and calling for your life. Hope Chapel is a church on mission with a high view of scripture that drives our values and yet we are seasoned with a grace and love for one another as we grow. That is what sets our church and ultimately our internship program apart from others in my mind. If you have a passion for teens and want to see God develop you as a servant leader consider an internship with us.
Although Hope Chapel provides people with meetings, programs and activities, these don’t necessarily provide a sense of belonging, friendship, care or accountability. The small group ministry exists to establish weekly gatherings called “Ohana’s” (families) to build meaningful relationships with others while growing in our life with Christ. Our goal is to grow our church smaller while growing larger by connecting the Hope Chapel family into small groups to experience . . .
The Small Group/Missions Intern position assists in all the major projects and ongoing ministry tasks to fulfill the mission/purposes of the small group and missions ministries. This would include such responsibilities as:
We are looking for an intern with a pastoral heart, who desires to see new Christians grow and unconnected Christians to become networked into the Body of Christ. She must be relational with a people-oriented gift mix. This intern must have an “inviter and includer” mentality – that is, one who takes the initiative by reaching out to people in all the different events and settings in our church.
Our worship interns assist in service coordination and researching new materials for music, dance and drama. Interns will also participate as a part of the existing worship teams in order to help them grow musically and spiritually. In addition, interns have the opportunity to build strong relationships with other team members as they cooperatively serve the Lord.
Our interns learn the use of PowerPoint and ProPresenter in church presentation, basic soundboard operation, use of lighting equipment, video camera operation and broadcast during the services.
Our interns assist in coordinating and planning special fellowship/outreach events of Hope Chapel such as Baptism Picnics, the Chili Cook-Off, 50/60’s Parties, etc. and holiday services (Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.)
Our interns learn teambuilding skills as they work with our greeters to oversee the general operation and various needs of our hospitality network. Our hospitality ministry provides an avenue to meet and welcome our congregation through which our interns can help uplift the body of Christ.
In our Media/Tech intern, we are looking for an intern who has specific skills, who can use them as needed, in the areas of graphic design, creating, shooting and editing videos, some lighting and sound engineering (some familiarity of digital light and sound board). Our desire is to to see you refine and hone your skills while you are here at Hope Chapel, and learn how technology fits in to service of the Kingdom of God.
|Our young adult ministry encompasses two areas: our Friday Night Service called ‘The Gathering’ and our young adult ministry called ‘RISE’. Our vision is to see young adults on Maui come to know the Lord, be a part of community, and grow in spiritual giftings to serve the Lord in the church and in our world. The purpose of our Friday Night Service was borne out of a desire to worship, fellowship, and study God’s Word in a way that would attract the seeker and ignite a passion within the heart of the believer. The Gathering service focuses on gospel-centered worship, teaching, and community. Our RISE ministry, for the ages of 18-30, exists to create a smaller connection of young adults within the larger community of the church. RISE contains weekly small groups, monthly young adult services on Wednesday night, monthly events, and bi-yearly retreats.We are looking for an intern with a pastoral heart who can come alongside the existing ministry of The Gathering and RISE to reach out to new young adults, disciple the young adult population, and help place young adults in ministry. We are seeking new and effective ways to build relationships between this demographic and the church.
The intern job description for The Gathering and RISE allows for the intern to utilize their gifts, whether through music, teaching, or discipleship, in all areas of ministry. The job description includes the following opportunities and responsibilities:
Our prayer is to see our young adult intern grow in areas of service, leadership, and discipleship, as well as build on the desire to reach out and serve young adults for the glory of God.
