5 Reasons You Should Intern at King's
I'm just about to finish my intern year here at King's Church. Here are a few thoughts on why you should consider the creative media internship that King's runs.
1. An insight into how King’s operates
Having an open office means you get to develop really good relationships with the other staff and volunteers who work at King’s, but you also get an insight into all the different teams, ministries, events and organisational gymnastics which are needed to run the church week-to-week.
2. You get to develop your own ideas and skills
Ideas can struggle to get off the ground without the right conversations and resources. During the internship, you will be trained in using high quality technology and computer software and also have the opportunity to discuss different ideas with the team.
3. There's lots of support.
The King’s office is a great place of support and encouragement. With regular catch ups with your line-manager, you won’t be left feeling lost or unsure. We have staff prayer every week to make sure that we keep re-focusing on why we are here and who we are doing it for. It's also a really great time to enjoy God's presence and encourage each other in prayer. May I mention there is top office banter?
4. The FOOD
Anyone who has had a taste of King’s catering will know what I’m talking about. The lunch menu is a wonderful thing to behold. Especially the paninis. The coffee shop team are such a delight to be around, so it's a great place to have lunch.
5. In Kingdom building, everything counts
It’s sometimes easy to forget why we do what we do. Whether you are preparing publications for an upcoming event, compiling content for the LOOP weekly or operating filming equipment for a video, everything you do will be helping to share about what King’s is about and helping people to find out more about Jesus.
In 1 Corinthians 15:58, it says:
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
It's amazing to consider that the repercussions of what you produce from your time here may be more expansive than you realise. It is great to have feedback from successful events, but when you hear of people's lives being changed when they find Jesus, it brings everything into perspective.
