During my time at First Baptist I learned more about myself and God than I ever have before! I felt God’s presence daily through the amazing staff and the kids we served!! It is a once in a life time experience that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
We care about you. Our leadership team cares deeply for your personal and spiritual growth. We provide weekly Bible studies and devotions. Our congregation will invite you into their lives and into their homes. We recognize that you are the future of the church and we want to do everything possible to help you succeed!
Our internship includes full-time preschool and after-school program opportunities. In both programs, you will plan and lead daily lesson plans including Bible stories, learning activities, crafts, educational centers, and recreational games!
For our preschool program, we need students who are Early Childhood, Child Life, Child Development, or Human Development and Family Studies majors. You will need 12 hours in any combination of these types of classes to qualify for the preschool. Most 4 year degrees and some two year degrees qualify to work with our school age children.
Semester positions include four preschool and four school age positions. Summer positions include four preschool and eight school age. School age positions work with our A+ Before and After School program (K-6th) and preschool positions work with our A+ Preschool program (3-5 year olds). Between these two programs we minister to 70 – 80 children a day.
