Goodwin Legacy Internship (Summer), Watson Grove Missionary Baptist Church, Nashville, TN

The Goodwin Legacy Internship at Watson Grove Missionary Baptist Church is designed to offer an undergraduate/graduate student who feels called to pastoral ministry an opportunity to serve with a large, active, predominantly African-American congregation in an urban setting. The Goodwin Legacy Internship is named after Rev. Curtis W. Goodwin, Sr., who served as the senior pastor of Watson Grove from 1973-2011. Prior to his call to the pastorate of Watson Grove, he served the church in an internship capacity under Rev. Marion Myers. Just as Rev. Myers had poured into him, Rev. Goodwin mentored several other young preachers during his pastorate, especially those matriculating at his beloved alma mater, American Baptist College. He firmly believed that helping young preachers was a valuable investment in the future of God’s Kingdom. Pastor John Faison, Sr., the current Senior Pastor, led Watson Grove to establish this internship in order to honor that legacy of investment.

Because we view the internship experience as a serious effort in training future pastors, Watson Grove attempts to take a professional approach to the development of servant leaders. Interns are not assigned menial tasks. Rather, we see the intern as a student, an apprentice, and a staff member with specific responsibilities and training opportunities.

Specifics:

I. Interns will work under the Senior Pastor, with the staff and ministry leaders at Watson Grove. Interns will be considered full, participating members of the church staff and will be assigned specific areas of responsibility. They will be responsible for serving as assigned, including but not limited to preaching, teaching, and leading. They will also attend (and lead when assigned) Sunday worship, Tuesday Bible study, prayer opportunities, and specific ministry meetings. There is also the expectation that a portion of the intern’s weekly time will be spent assisting with congregational care and church administration.

II. Interns must maintain daily office hours of Tuesday through Thursday (9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.), Friday (9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) and Saturdays as assigned. On Sunday, interns will attend Saturday Night Live worship (6:00 p.m.) and both Sunday worship opportunities (8:00 a.m. & 10:45 a.m.). Interns will have Mondays off (Sabbath). Spiritual growth is fundamental to our ministry, so the day typically begins with personal time of devotion. Interns will be required to keep a daily, personal journal recording experiences and spiritual growth. Mornings are used for planning, coordination, activity preparation, and administrative duties. Many afternoons/evenings are spent developing relationships—either in group activities or meetings (planned and spontaneous) or one-on-one in counseling and prayer.

III. The Goodwin Legacy Internship at Watson Grove is for 10 weeks, beginning the last week of May through the last week of July.  Salary for the internship is $500.00 per week (before taxes), with no provisions for paid time-off or vacations other than recognized holidays. No travel or lodging is provided with this internship; interns are expected to secure these personally as needed. Vacations must take place prior to, or upon the completion of the internship. In exceptional circumstances, time-off should be worked out in advance with the Senior Pastor.

IV. There is basically only one “policy statement” governing interns’ private lives, and it will be strictly enforced. There will be NO dating relationships between interns and any partner/staff member of Watson Grove during the internship. All relationships with partners & with fellow staff should be above reproach. There are NO exceptions to this policy. Dress, language, behavior, and attitude must be worthy of an ambassador of Jesus Christ.

V. All applicants will be reviewed by a committee consisting of staff members and church partners. Applicants must be rising undergraduate seniors or current graduate seminary students. There is no preference given to any particular school. Applications, interviews, letters of recommendation, spiritual gift assessments, background check, and career goals will all play a part in the selection of the Goodwin Legacy Intern. Only one (1) intern will be selected each year.

VI. All applicants must take an online spiritual gift assessment as a part of their application. This spiritual gift assessment is found on the homepage of our website: www.watsongrovembc.org. This will help us in discerning team chemistry & balance. This test will not be the sole basis for accepting or declining any applicant. It serves to give us insight into the individuals we are considering. Furthermore, each applicant must complete a background check. The instructions for the background check will be given to each applicant upon receipt of his/her application. No intern will be allowed to serve without completion of the background check.

VII. This internship position is viewed as a pre-professional opportunity for college students. Applicants should complete the online application by April 1, 2016.  Additional resumes & references should be emailed to the contact listed below.  Applicants may be contacted for an interview in April. We anticipate final decisions and commitments by May 1, 2016. Those interested in being considered for the Goodwin Legacy Internship during the summer of 2016 must apply at www.watsongrovembc.org.
