CROSSROADS is a dynamic growing church in an oil-based economy in West Texas. Midland-Odessa is the fastest growing metropolitan area in the country according to the U.S. Bureau for Economic Development for 2012-2013. CROSSROADS has grown by over 300% in the last four years and reaches over 2,500 people a week on three campuses plus an additional 400 weekly online.
CROSSROADS has a long and rich history of being an instrument of God in West Texas. Lead Pastor Dr. Griffin Jones has been at CROSSROADS for over 25 years, leading the church to connect people to Jesus Christ and helping them become fully devoted followers of Him. In a community experiencing such a rapid population boom, there is a desperate need to reach the thousands of un-churched, de-churched, and non-Christians moving into our community.
At CROSSROADS, we believe strongly in investing in the next generation of Christ-followers that will lead the church around the globe. That is the reason we started the CROSSROADS Internship Program (CIP). Our goal is to provide practical ministry experience, an opportunity to grow through personal development training, a weekly intern study, and cultivate one-on-one relationships with Pastors and Directors on our staff in a stage of life ahead of you. The CIP is demanding, but we hope to be good stewards of the time you are investing and the resources we are investing in you.
All interested candidates are encouraged to apply. Selections will be made on a case-by-case basis. We are seeking candidates with specific skill sets as well as in specific departments. Departments and skills set include but are not limited to:
• Technology (video editing, camera work, sound engineering, administration, etc.)**
• Children’s Ministry (teaching, drama, music, administration, etc.)
• Student Ministry (teaching, music, relationship building, administration, etc.)
• Worship Arts (leading worship, charting music, administration, etc.)**
• Operations (accounting, finance, administration, etc.)
**These positions will require samples of prior work.
The summer internship runs from May 29th to August 10th. CROSSROADS will provide host homes for interns and compensation for their work.
An intern in the CR Kids ministry can expect a summer full of the unexpected! We will have several events during the summer that you will help coordinate and facilitate. You will be a part of our Sunday morning classes each week and have numerous opportunities to visit with many of our amazing volunteers. You will receive an up close and personal experience with every aspect of what goes on each day to make our ministry a success week after week.
