Crossroads Internship


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
