Core Values of Interns in Conference Internships are:
- spiritual development
- gain sense of community
- leadership advancement
A residential crossroads internship is worked out independently between the ministry site and intern. The intern and ministry site are not a part of the interview process. This is typically when an intern works in their home church. Ministry site and intern comply with all other aspects and components of Crossroads.
A voyager crossroads internship will involve an interview process and placement of the intern to a ministry setting. The placement will be the best fit for the intern and church based on interests/affinity. The intern has the opportunity to connect with the ministry setting before accepting placement.
- Compensation: $2,000 by the host ministry’s budget. The ministry site will also provide ministry travel reimbursement at IRS standard mileage rate. An additional $1,000 will be given to the intern for compensation by the Missouri Conference Office of Pastoral Excellence.
- 10-week internship
- Housing provided by host ministry
