JOB POST- Missions and Outreach Internship

Overview and Job Description for Missions and Outreach Internship

 at Malibu Presbyterian Church

At Malibu Presbyterian we believe passionately in the great commission of Jesus Christ, to go into all the world showing Christ’s love to those we meet.  MPC partners with 20 plus mission partners nearby and far away.  We seek to put our faith into action by encouraging our body of believers and community into discovering their gifts and callings by volunteering in local outreach and mission opportunities.  In the book of James it says that faith without works is dead, praise God that we have an alive church!

Although flexible, the mission and outreach internship will be approximately 13-15 weeks in duration starting in August/September and continuing into December.  The amount of hours will be on average 5-8 per week.  This is a paid internship.  A vibrant and growing relationship with Jesus and the desire to work as part of a team are essential requirements.  Because our missions and outreach events are usually outside of business hours, the intern will need to be flexible in terms of when the hours are required. For students, it is understood that class time and course work is a priority.  The intern will assist the mission and outreach director in planning and implementing the mission and outreach events throughout the year.  Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Meet with Mission and Outreach Director weekly in planning and implementing outreach
  • Help lead the Baja Build (Oct. 26 and 27)
  • Attend monthly Mission Committee meetings, typically the last Thursday of the month
  • Assist in supervising the Thanksgiving Food Drive November 21-23
  • Attend Sunday morning services at MPC and assist in any mission and outreach responsibilities
  • Assist in any other mission and outreach opportunities as they arise throughout the semester
  • Vision casting
  • Recruiting volunteers amongst our congregation, Pepperdine and community

Experience requirements:

  1. A passion for Jesus’ call to help the poor and disenfranchised
  2. Volunteer experience in homeless outreach
  3. Must be comfortable amongst the homeless
  4. Self sufficiency in computer skills and organizational skills
  5. Team player
