University UMC: Summer Ministry Interns
Date Posted: 1/11/2023
University UMC, San Antonio, TX
Summer internships at University United Methodist Church are intended to help college-aged students who are discerning a call to vocational ministry or who are looking to serve in a ministry setting during the summer while also growing in their own sense of vocation.
Each internship will include a retreat and weekly classes, provided by our college ministry, that are intended to encourage peer relationships and spiritual development. Housing arrangements can be discussed with those who do not live in the area.
See the following for descriptions of each program internship. Unless otherwise noted, the summer interns are full time from the middle of May to the middle of August.
