We believe one of the best ways to foster and train people who feel called to ministry is by giving them a real life experience that includes but is not limited to learning how to work in a church, how to teach and lead students, by being mentored by experienced student ministry staff, by fostering meaningful relationships with students, and by providing support for the Vestavia Methodist Student Ministry Staff.
This is a 2 year program with the possibility of transitioning into long term. This is an entry level position who feel a call to ministry, specifically but not limited to
student ministry.

This is a full time job with inconsistent hours. Please plan on being flexible with your schedule. As well, we expect you to attend retreats, weekend and
evening events.
