Siloam’s Internship Program exists to assist high school graduates and older to prepare for serving not only locally, but also all over the world. This program has been put together to serve Siloam Missionary Homes as well as to teach hands on training in small-scale farming and agriculture. This amazing opportunity is not only for personal and professional development, but also an opportunity to search out opportunities to go into a similar field of ministry; whether it is missions or other ministry.
We have four different types of Internships. Each program is different and allows more flexibility for individuals who are deciding what their next steps might be. These programs are:
- Summer Internship Program, 8-9 weeks long (Begins the 3rd week in June-end of the 2nd full week in August).
- Roll-over Program
a. Summer-Fall (3rd week in June-3rd week in Dec.)
b. Spring-Summer (1st week in January-2nd full week in Aug.)
- Short-Term (Semester Style: Fall, Spring)
- Full Year
Interns are involved in an intense learning experience through active work assignments where learning might occur through hands-on activities as well as personal research, seminars, and other field events. Interns will be responsible for farm demonstrations and learn basic skills in various areas such as animal husbandry, lasagna gardening, involvement with volunteers and work teams, tours and lunches, ground maintenance and office work.
As a support to Siloam, the intern is involved in the day-to-day operations. This allows interns the opportunity to be exposed to several different sides of ministry. Interns have the availability to take advantage of all of the resources available on Siloam’s campus. Resources include the Library, Family Center, Recreation and Exercise Rooms, Missionaries, Dad’s Country Store and the Treasure Chest.
Our internship, although rigorous and demanding, is an opportunity to give in service. This might be a variety of fulfilling tasks that range from easy to hard. These tasks could include pulling weeds, taking out the garbage and multiple other jobs. Regardless of the task, this amazing opportunity can teach the intern life skills that can help them regardless of where they serve.
