Fellowships & Internships

Interested in developing a close community of faith in which to reflect on God’s presence in daily life?  Want to grow in relationship with God through knowledge and faith practices? Lutheran Campus Ministry’s Faith & Vocation Fellowships and Student Ministry Internships might be for you!  

Student Ministry Internships are service-learning positions designed to provide opportunities for students to experience leadership in a campus ministry environment, serving students in Christ’s name. Student Ministry Interns welcome new students to Lutheran Campus Ministry and connect them to activities. Click to read the Student Ministry Internship Program Description.

Faith and Vocation Fellowships are designed to provide opportunities for students to serve in partner ministries, exploring the diverse ways Christians serve neighbors. Faith & Vocation Fellows work with an on-site mentor in a local congregation or church-related ministry. Normally, they serve about 8 hours per week in their ministry site, which includes weekly or bi-weekly meetings with their mentor. The work schedule is determined by the Fellow and mentor. After applying to the general program, the Fellow will work with the Campus Pastor to be connected to a ministry site. Click to read the Faith & Vocation Fellowship Program Description.
