STEP (Summer Transformation & Education Program): Mission Internships

The mission of the STEP: Mission Internships Program is to provide hands-on opportunities for young adults to make a difference in the world by serving out of a deep level of their Christian faith, particularly with children and youth in under-served communities.

STEP interns serve in Christian community day camps and outreach ministries within The Florida United Methodist Church, including CROS Ministries and Grace Place for Children and Families. On-site training is provided to the interns by the outreach ministries. Conference and outreach ministry staff provide supervision, mentorship, and spiritual input throughout the summer.

The duration of the internship is 8-10 weeks. A stipend of approximately $225 per week is provided, but pay varies slightly depending on the placement location. Young adults ages 19 (by 8/31/2020) - 30, who are eager to be part of God's transformative work in local communities are encouraged to apply. Submit completed application, recommendation letter, and resume via email to Randi Talsma at, by May 1, 2020. For more information about STEP or questions regarding the application, please contact Randi Talsma at the e-mail address listed above.
