As In His Steps Ministries grows and develops, we are hiring interns who have a heart for Christ, a passion for serving, and modeling excellence before our students. Our internship opportunities are paid positions and may also be used as class credit or community service. Our four internship opportunities also have the potential for growth into full-time employment. We are seeking interns who are current college students or recent college graduates. An internship with IHS will prepare interns to grow and succeed in their chosen fields.

Education Interns serve our students through our after-school S.P.A.S.E. program and Summer Enrichment Program which is a non-school hour tutorial, mentoring, and enrichment program. The S.P.A.S.E. Ministry employs a holistic strategy  (Spiritual, Physical, Academic, Social, and Emotional) of ministering to the child in order to ensure success. Education Interns gain experience with teaching and working with students in Canton, Mississippi.

IHS has a new initiative for Social Work interns who are seeking experience in community development, cultural intelligence, and working with vulnerable youth and parents. Social Work interns should have a heart for Christ and compassion for those they serve. Those majoring in sociology, social work, or similar fields will be ideal but not required for this position. 

Sports/Recreation Ministry Interns work with local athletes, assist with athletic training, mentorship, and regular bible devotionals.  Interns gain experience in training and coaching high school football, soccer, basketball, baseball, softball, and track and field athletes. The internship can also include working at our Christian summer camps. An ideal candidate for this position has a heart for youth and outdoor recreational activities. We are developing our Agape Campsite and Training Center as a location for summer camps and ministry training. Our campsite is a unique opportunity for local youth since many of them have never had access to a camp-like setting before. Fishing, horseback riding, and archery are just some of the activities that take place at the campsite.

The Media Intern should be someone with excellent photography and videography skills. We are looking for an intern with an eye for detail to capture the exciting memories that happen at IHS. Photos and videos are used for our social media presence, marketing, and  public relations which allow us to share with our partners all over the country what’s going on at In His Steps Ministries. 

If you or someone you know is interested in applying to the internship program, please contact Carolyn Bacon, IHS Personnel Director ( ).
