Winter 2023

  • Arrive Wednesday, January 4, 2023
  • Orientation Thursday, January 5, 2023
  • Depart Sunday, April 30, 2023

Each session will have three areas of focus:

  1. Spiritual Formation
  2. Work Excellence
  3. Living in Community

This is an experience for those who want to grow spiritually, are willing to work hard, and wish to live in an engaging community.

Spiritual Formation: This is a priority for the internship at MBC. Interns can expect to grow spiritually through understanding various types of ministry, participating in Bible studies, and attending church services together. The community of interns have an opportunity to better understand who they are in Christ, what their God given purpose is and explore their faith together as a group.

Work Excellence: Interns work an average of 36 hours per week in three main departments while at MBC: housekeeping, foodservice and maintenance. The full-time team members at MBC help to properly train each intern in their work areas.

Living in Community:  Interns will live in an intentional community during their time at MBC. They are provided with meals and/or are responsible for cooking and cleaning and other community living responsibilities. Each week, Interns participate in a Community Day together, investing time to build relationships with one another while enjoying fun, stretching activities and different mission-focused opportunities. Each Intern is partnered with a full-time team member for mentorship, with an objective to bond more effectively with the greater MBC team community.

Community Day Activities include seminars, service and Muskoka experiences. Some options include:

  • Team/Trust Building activities.
  • Adventure activities, possibly including: hiking, cross-country/downhill skiing, snow shoeing, swimming, polar dips (if brave enough), high/low ropes, astronomy nights, airplane ride and much more.
  • Life skills such as understanding how to budget wisely.
  • Visiting and volunteering with partner organizations including off-site trips.
  • Wilderness experiences, including a canoe trip into Algonquin or similar environment.
  • Serving at local non-profit organizations.

Additional opportunities include:

  • Volunteering at a youth group in Huntsville
  • Transition from participating in Bible Studies to leading Bible Studies
  • A Book Club focusing on two books to help understand and develop spiritual leadership qualities
  • Out of town multi-day trips to feed the homeless and those less fortunate
  • Apologetics including Astronomy

It is understood that Interns:

  • Have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Are willing to learn and grow
  • Are eager to live out a good work ethic
  • Will adhere/agree to the following:
  • Will actively participate in all parts of the internship

This is not an experience for those who want to just spend time with friends. This is an intentional opportunity for growth, both personally and spiritually while participating in ministry at MBC.

Pay

Interns at MBC are paid minimum wage for an average of 36 hours weekly. Room, board and a program fee are deducted from paycheques to help cover some of the costs of serving and living on-site. Funding is provided by MBC for local service trips and team bonding/fun activities.
