NXT Kids Summer Internship
The goal of the NXT Kids Summer Internship Program is to expose student ministry workers to vocational Christian ministry. Due to the relatively short period of time that an intern will be serving, the internship will only be able to show a glimpse of full-time church ministry, specializing in children’s ministry. The hope is to share principles that will affect the intern’s future ministry and life.
A holistic approach to preparation is the goal; we hope our interns will grow in spiritual, emotional, relational and ministry preparedness. Interns need to understand that the focus will be on personal growth, not just productivity. They will be expected to come with a willingness and openness to change and grow as their experiences provide opportunity to do so.
The idea of the Summer Internship Program is based on hands-on ministry in an environment rich for success and growth. It is a place of learning and testing. More important than outlines and information is the opportunity for the intern to spend hours with individuals who have ministry experience and a desire to speak into their life in preparation for the road ahead.
The NXT Kids Internship Program exists for three main purposes: personal growth, leadership development and ministry experience.

In many cases ministry has been professionalized to the point of ineffectiveness. Lifestyle counts in pastoral ministry! Any amount of learning will be useless unless accompanied by a spiritual brokenness before God and men, and obedience to the Holy Spirit. Emotional equipping is as important as intellectual. Our goal is for the Summer Intern to pursue wholeness through Christ. This will require openness and trust on the part of the Intern. A student can plan on…
I. Meeting with an NXT Pastor for feedback and guidance on ministry and personal growth, as well as to discuss reading for the summer.
II. Consistent personal spiritual development through a regular devotional life and participation inthe worship and life of Calvary Church.
III. Building loving relationships with students, leaders, parents, and others at Calvary Church.
IV. Maintaining good taste in speech, dress, manner, and relationships.
V. Keeping a journal of field experience: programs planned, services conducted, talks, sermons, anecdotes, failures, and successes.
The ministry of the Summer Internship Program is leadership focused. Good leadership is the key to effectiveness and long-term success in ministry. No matter what the intern’s gifts are, they will be expected to lead.
I. The Leader’s Administration
A. Office Management – this will include office hours
B. Financial Management – budgeting, accounting, and organizing.
C. Communication – this includes promotion, advertising, newsletters, and leading meetings
D. Attend staff meetings – participate in planning and discussion
E. Attend Pastoral Prayer Meetings (weekly)
II. Pastoral Leadership
A. Lead a small group and do follow-up
B. Conflict resolution
C. Counseling (of typical youth-related or kids-related issues)
III. Organizational Growth and Leadership
A. Planning for growth
B. Developing the leaders around you
1. Identify, call, and equip someone to lead
2. Develop student leaders
3. Lead other leaders (who may be more gifted than you in certain areas)
IV. Required Reading for Leadership and Spritual Growth
A. The Lord and His Prayer By NT Wright
B. Fresh Wind Fresh Fire By Jim Cymbala
Interns will have the responsibility to lead ministries that already exist. The challenge is to take what is already being done and improve upon it. We expect ministry to be done with excellence! Interns will be given many responsibilities immediately, while other responsibilities they will have to grow into. Here are some of the areas interns will be responsible for:
Small Group Discipleship
With regards to such a large student ministry, the only way to sustain growth is to breakdown the ministry into small groups. Students cannot feel like they are just another number or slip through the cracks. We need to provide individual attention and care for every student who attends anything to do with NXT. Small group discipleship is crucial for this. This is done in a variety of ways:
Ministry success cannot be viewed simply by numbers and crowds. Individual lives must be touched and changed for ministry to be considered successful.
Every intern will be expected to make a concerted effort to grow in their leadership ability. Reading, research, interviews, training sessions, as well as hands-on experience will further develop the leadership skills in the intern’s life. Interns will have required reading that focuses on leadership and spiritual growth.
The overall aim of the Summer Internship Program will be to allow young men and women to be used by God in their areas of strengths and interests. Interns will not be held back from ministry opportunities that attract them, but rather, will be encouraged to pursue those areas. Our goal is to provide the resources and environment for success in ministry. Interns will be able to develop the giftings the Lord has blessed them with. Areas may include:
The areas of ministry in which an intern can be involved are varied. We serve a creative God. Knowing this, we recognize the special and unique gifts the Lord has blessed you with. Interns will have freedom to develop and use those gifts in different aspects of ministry.
