1 St. Andrew s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi, Minnesota, offers an exciting leadership development opportunity for young adults to utilize and grow in gifts for leadership, ministry, and service with children and youth. We invite your interest and your application! For summer 2017, St. Andrew s will select four interns (one for children s ministry, three for youth ministry) to participate in this amazing, life-changing leadership experience. Alongside St. Andrew s staff, interns design and implement creative summer programs that provide opportunities for young people to engage with their faith, learn and grow in community, and ultimately be transformed through encounters with God and within Christian community. More specifically, summer interns have the opportunity to: Experience the daily rhythms, joys, and challenges of a large, active congregation. Exercise gifts, talents, and passions for ministry leadership, specifically in working with children and youth.
