God is at work on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and we want to give you a front row seat to that work! Our goal in launching the Cape Cod Church Summer Internship Program is to invest in the next generation of church leaders, who will in turn "Inspire people to Live Fully for God" on Cape Cod and around the world.
This 10-week paid internship program is designed to provide you with the professional and practical experience necessary to succeed in ministry, as well as grow you spiritually. Plus, our staff likes to have fun, and we hope you’ll enjoy the summer too!

Interns will gain hands-on experience in a selected area of ministry based on their unique gifts, working directly with a ministry supervisor. Interns are expected to work 40 hours per week (unless otherwise specified) and are paid $12/ hour (exempt). Interns will also gain an overview of all ministry areas through weekly staff "elevator talks."
Collectively, interns will also participate in weekly leadership coaching sessions with Senior Pastor Ben Feldott and a select group of marketplace and ministry leaders. Interaction with this gifted group of leaders will widen interns' perspective on ministry and further develop their leadership skills.
Outside of ministry training, interns are also invited to participate in a variety of programs for personal spiritual growth. This will give them the opportunity to dive deeper, discuss their personal faith, and grow together as they discern God’s calling in their life.
These include: a weekly intern round table with Leiko McSherry to discuss the challenges/rewards of ministry and support one another in prayer; a young adult small group and activities in the wider church for Bible study and peer fellowship; informal mentor meetings with your ministry supervisor; and summer devotionals led by Pastor Ben for Cape Cod Church staff.
Cape Cod is a world-renowned destination, and we want to help you experience this busy and beautiful region during your stay! Interns will have the opportunity to explore the Cape through a few organized excursions over the summer. Activities may include day trips to local beaches, dinner (and ice cream) outings, and a trip to the nearby city of Boston.
Over the course of the summer, interns will work closely with their specific ministry supervisor and
Internship Coordinator Leiko McSherry to shape programming that best develops their gifts and serves the mission of the church in all four of these areas.
