Internships

Summer 2019 Internships

The Office of Faith, Work, and Economics seeks to equip future pastors and Christian leaders to integrate their faith in the marketplace. We hope to accomplish this by educating pastors and leaders in four areas: theology of work and vocation, biblical views of poverty and wealth, social entrepreneurship, and business ethics.

Interns will be placed with local business professionals where they will observe, participate and be mentored throughout semester. Through this experience, interns will learn to integrate their Christian faith in the marketplace.

Interns will receive a $1,000 taxable stipend that will be distributed in two installments in June and July.

Eligibility

1. Applicants must be enrolled as a student on the Kentucky, Florida, Memphis, or Tulsa campuses.

2. Applicants must have completed their first semester of study as a masters or doctoral candidate.

Requirements

Interns must:

  • Spend 4 hours per week with a local business to observe, participate, and be mentored
  • Debrief with OFWE staff at the end of the internship

**Applicants are not required to identify an internship site before applying. The OFWE will help place selected interns. However, interns are welcome to suggest sites.
