Organization Description:

In Swampscott, this congregation serves the city of Lynn and its surrounding villages and towns. It is poised in a particularly exciting position to be a place where people from a variety of cultures, socio-economic status and religious backgrounds can come together. We are urban dwellers and suburban dwellers, multi-generational, and theologically very diverse. The congregation is growing in numbers and in commitment to our urban/suburban relationship. The student has the opportunity to participate in all aspects of parish life, with responsibilities determined by the student's learning goals and interests.

Opportunities for Student Involvement:

Not counting travel, the Ministerial Intern will be expected to practice ministry about 12-15 hours per week. Though there will be opportunities to work in other areas of ministry, the intern's primary involvement in ministry will reflect the Parish Minister's primary focus in ministry.
