The First Free Worship internship program is a dynamic 4-month training opportunity for young worship leaders looking to develop heart, passion, and gifting for worship ministry. The program involves weekly classes facilitated by First Free staff on the theological and practical components of leading worship. It also involves opportunities to help plan and lead worship in a variety of contexts at Frist Free, including Sunday morning services, SH ministry, JH ministry, and children’s ministry.
We are looking for young, passionate, humble, worship leaders who are excited to take the next steps in the personal journey of leading worship, serving the local church, and growing in ministry.
The program runs September – December. Participants will meet weekly for a worship leader training class (see topics below). They will also lead worship in various contexts at First Free 3 times a month. They will meet monthly with the pastor of worship ministries for coaching and mentoring. Worship interns join the worship ministry team and report directly to the Pastor of Worship Ministries, with additional investment and mentoring from other First Free staff.
