Hope Chapel is a Christian inter-denominational church with a mission to “Share the Love of Jesus with the people of Maui that all may Know and Glorify God”. Our core values as a church come from our emphasis on Biblical teaching; they are Worship, Community, Kids and Families, Life Change. Our 24-member staff serves a membership base of 1,300 people. Our Goal is to equip serious servant-oriented leaders for full-time vocational ministry, and to give each one a deeper sense of God’s calling in their life. Our Purpose is to provide hands-on experience from gifted and experienced leaders in various ministry-related areas within the local church context.
Our vision is to train individuals in dynamic hands-on ministry skills and nurture and develop their unique spiritual gifts and passions. Each year we select single college-age interns (19-26) who will be assigned to a ministry overseer whose gifts and talents compliment theirs. This year we will be selecting 12 interns. Available ministry areas include for this year:
See tabs above for detailed information on each position. Our desire is to develop our interns’ unique spiritual gifts and fuel their spiritual passions. Our internship program covers comprehensive exposure to all areas of ministry.
This is an energetic and challenging 50 hour-a-week program designed to sharpen and train our interns so that they are fully equipped to serve God in every area of ministry from the mission field to the marketplace. Each week, our interns spend 40 hours dedicated to their area of specialty. The rest of their time will include serving the church, and facility upkeep. Other opportunities for involvement can include:
Each intern will be receiving a $400 monthly stipend, for their own personal living expenses, such as food, recreational activities and miscellaneous spending money. On-campus housing and utilities is provided. Each intern will be responsible for airfare to and from Maui, as well as health insurance coverage for the duration of their internship and personal taxes on any support contributions received. If you need help with additional expenses, you may want to build a financial support network. A sample packet is available with ideas and suggestions for creating your support partnering network team. Your support contributions may be tax-deductible to the contributor, as long as the donations are being made to a non-profit corporation ( i.e. your home church).

Children’s Ministry Intern
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.
Positions Available: 1 female intern
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.

Youth Intern (working with 7th-12th grades)
GOALS, OBJECTIVES & JOB DESCRIPTION
Our goal for our students is that they are impacted by the teachings of the Bible in such a way that they have a firm foundation when they run into real life tests of their faith. Instead of being molded and shaped by society, we take them and shape them and mold them with the love of Christ. We desire to create a safe place for students to be themselves, without fear of judgment from others. Additionally, we aim to make disciples who make disciples.
Because of this, we are looking for interns who want to come along side the Junior High and High School leaders as we develop relationships with students and model to them what a mature Christian is. We are looking for interns who are secure in their faith, and who have a desire to disciple the students they come into contact with. We are looking for openness and honesty, not perfection. As leaders, we don’t want to appear without fault, but rather that we are vulnerable, humble servants of God. We are looking for people who are gifted specifically in administration, teaching, discipleship, and creativity.
Our two youth interns will be working with both our Jr. High and High School Ministry. Some of the roles a Youth Intern could take on include:
– Layout of the Mid Week Service plan via Planning Center
– Parent Communication via Newsletters, and the Remind App
– Graphics work (i.e teaching slides, program design,
– Event Flyers
– Monthly and Yearly Calendars
We hope that our interns will experience what full-time ministry is like, so that by the end of the program they will have a better understanding of the skills, and sacrifices required to work with youth. You will help put together the nuts and bolts of these ministries with our youth pastors and directors, including putting together youth worship services, events, small groups, camps, fund-raisers and mission trips. These real life experiences, with coaching and training as you go, can be a pivotal point to launch your future ministry.
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. If you have a passion for teens and want to see God develop you as a servant leader, consider an internship with us.

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.

These services focus on gospel-centered worship, teaching, and community.

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 our church and RISE to reach out to new young adults, disciple the young adult population, and help place young adults in ministry.
