Pastoral Internships

You are here


The All People Pastoral Internship focuses on spiritual formation and leadership development shaped by the United Methodist Church for All People’s commitment to justice, inclusion, and spiritual transformation.

This 11-week paid internship offers undergraduate students an opportunity to engage in asset-based community development, to live in intentional community, and to discern their call to active, full-time ministry.

Life in Community: Interns live together in on the South Side of Columbus and experience life as an intentional Christian community—sharing in meals, weekly house meetings, and communal prayer.

Prayer and Discernment: All People Interns participate in weekly worship services, bi-weekly access to a spiritual director, and monthly faith-rooted leadership seminars.

Work and Vocation: Interns work full-time in the ministry of UM Church for All People. Each intern will be assigned one ministry area to coordinate and will be paired with a professional mentor.

• Willing to engage in ministry with ALL people!
• Willing to be challenged in the areas of leadership, spiritual disciplines, and self-awareness.
• Exploring a call to active, full-time ministry.
• Strong interpersonal, analytical and project management skills.
• At least 19 years of age and a current student enrolled at an accredited college or university.
