Jubilee Fellows serve across North America
Jubilee Fellows serve for 10 weeks during the summer in congregations primarily in Michigan. We match students with the internship sites, taking into consideration the individual interests of the Jubilee Fellows and the needs of the churches. Their internship responsibilities can include:
- planning summer programs or outreach efforts
- teaching adult education, Sunday school, or small groups
- making pastoral care visits
- planning and leading worship
A pastor or other full-time staff member from each church commits to mentoring the student, encouraging his or her personal, professional and spiritual growth. The summer internships are often the highlight of the Jubilee Fellows' experience. "I feel much more ready for ministry now than I did at the beginning of this internship," commented former Jubilee Fellow Sarah Stripp. "I gained a lot of skills and insights throughout this summer that have deepened my understanding of what ministry is like."
Summer internship placements
We work closely with each student to learn about his or her vocational goals. The final decision for internship placement is made by the Program Coordinator, but we work together to ensure it is a place where the student will learn, grow, and be challenged and encouraged by his or her experiences.
In the sidebar (right) you'll find a list of the internship sites for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Fellows. We have a few churches who have hosted students for many years, because they provide such an outstanding experience for our Jubilee Fellows; but we are also open to exploring new internship sites each year, based on the interests of our Jubilee Fellows.
