Summer Internship, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Port Townsend, WA

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, is seeking a seminary student to be in residence as a guest facilitator, for six weeks, during the summer of 2017.  The student will assist with the final development and presentation of two weeks of programs with children and youth in the community.  Under the “Summer Soul” heading are two programs: “Water & Soul” for youth 12-15 years of age, and “Art & Soul” for children 3-12 years of age.  We are seeking an interested person who will help shape the “spiritual narrative” of this year’s programs and help facilitate the programs along with the rector, a team of planners and volunteers.

July 17-21, 2017 -  “WATER & SOUL”  - ages 12-15

“Water & Soul” is a ministry of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Port Townsend, WA for youth ages 12-15.   Out of this Pacific Northwest, maritime seaport, young leaders heed the call to care for, and deepen their bonds with, God's good creation -- all the while, helping their peers and the broader community to do so as well.  While this is a very practical adventure, it is founded and guided by a Christ-centered identity emerging from the waters of baptism.”

The development of “Water & Soul” has been supported by a diocesan Congregational Development Grant and was first offered in 2015 in collaboration with the Port Townsend Marine Science Center and the Northwest Olympic Salmon Coalition.   The second offering will take place in 2017.  We are looking to further develop the program with the goal of making it a self-sustaining as an annual offering, with an eventual goal of making it a residential experience for youth in the congregation, community, diocese and beyond. Activities in the 2015 session included salmon habitat restoration work, canoeing and kayaking, marine science activities, and snorkeling.  Reflections included exploring the meaning of “home and habitat,” the “call to transformation,” the meaning of “community,” and “hope,” all with an emphasis on the “spirituality of creation care.”  Activities for the 2017 session are currently being shaped.   A video, created accompany the grant application, may be found on YouTube by searching for Water & Soul Saint Paul's Episcopal Church Port Townsend, WA.

August 7-11, 2017 “ART & SOUL” – ages 3-12

“Art & Soul” was offered in 2014 and 2015 with 50 attendees each year, supported by a team of artists and volunteers.  The theme for the 2017 offering of half-day sessions will be “Hearts on Fire:  Dancing with Saints.”  Saints being considered for the week’s art and reflections are:  Desmond Tutu, Mother Theresa, St. Paul, Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Dorothy Day, Malala Yousafzai, St. Francis, and others.  A preliminary outline of the week has been created.  In the past, art activities have included drawing and painting, mixed media and collage projects, Japanese fold dying, word play and dance.  The larger group is divided by age level and the projects tailored to the respective stage of development by volunteer artists.  The week is also being supported by the return appearance of the “Pipia Sisters” who provide music and song.  The week will conclude with a showcase of performance and art projects for family and friends.  

What seek in a guest facilitator:   St. Paul’s is not looking for an “expert,” but rather one with a passion and willingness to learn and grow in this summer experience.  An ideal candidate would have a love of spirituality in the realm of creation care and the arts, and would be comfortable with hiking and water activities.  Experience with children and youth is desired, but is not a necessity.  An expectation is that the guest facilitator will participate in the final shaping of the programs, from a distance, prior to the residency.  The program design will take into consideration the guest facilitator’s gifts and interests.  During the presentation of the programs, the expectation is that the student facilitator will offer the spiritual grounding for each day, and assist participants in reflecting upon their experiences.  Applicants need not be Episcopalian.  Attendance at a “Safeguarding God’s Children” and a background check are required. St. Paul’s is offering housing, a stipend of $1,000, an invitation to preach on August 13, and the hospitality of an enthusiastic congregation.  Travel expenses are negotiable.

If you are interested, please contact Dianne Andrews, rev.dandrews@hotmail.com, with a resume, two letters of reference, and your responses to the following:

1. Why do you feel drawn to participate in St. Pauls’ “Summer Soul” programs with children and youth?

2. Briefly, please describe your theological education experience to date.

 3. Please describe any relevant interests and/or experience in the following areas:

  • Work with children and youth in general
  • Faith formation with children and youth
  • Outdoor activities
  • The Arts

4. Is there anything else you would like to share about yourself?

Application deadline is April 1, 2017.   Interviews will be conducted via Skype in late April with a final decision to be made by May 1.  www.stpaulspt.org.
