PS JACK & CAROL HANES // SENIOR PASTORS
We encourage you to rise above the ordinary and step into the extraordinary opportunity that ImagineNations Church internship will provide for you. Our team is committed to providing the best hands on learning and growth opportunities as part of your internship experience. As part of this program you will not only be learning a wide range of ministry skills, but you will also be developing a heart for God's house as you serve along side our team and have access to a wealth of knowledge, experience, support and mentoring. In 2017, it's time to go to a new level!
We are a growing congregation, located in the western suburbs of Sydney. Our church is built on a solid foundation of God's Word and His purposes for us. We believe we exist "for such a time as this."
The heart and passion of ImagineNations Church is to see non-Christians all over the world become totally committed followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our first priority is to see Jesus' last command, "to make disciples of all nations", fulfilled.
ImagineNations Church is affiliated with the Australian Christian Churches, a Pentecostal movement with over 1000 churches in Australia. ImagineNations Church aligns with the ACC statement of belief.
Internship is a 10 month program which runs from mid February through to December. Internship will consist of two full workdays each week serving in your role in the department of your choice and attending all events/services/meetings related to your specific department, weekly devotions with the rest of the interns, mentoring, travel and ministry opportunities and also a chance to develop your skills and experience.
We have an amazing creative worship team with over 80 team members across 3 different age groups. The team is a major part of every service and special event that our church puts on! As an intern in this vital part of church you will take on major responsibilities in the areas of team development, musical/production creativity and be stretched to become a great team leader!
We passionately believe in the next generation. As we champion young people and their dreams, lives are transformed and leaders are raised. At INY we know that having fun and enjoying life is important but we believe that we are called for more than that! Our youth ministry exists to make a difference, not only in our generation, but the generations to come!
Areas of involvement include Administration, Design, Events, Discipleship, Scripture and Friday Night Services.
ImagineNations Kids ministers to kids and families from 1 year to the end of year 6 at school. We have the privilege of being able to help establish foundations of faith and God-given vision in the hearts and lives of those who are most likely to respond to the gospel. We also have a LOT of fun!
ImagineNations Kids internship allows a successful applicant the opportunity to develop their leadership and ministry skills in an area of particular interest- such as worship or in a generalised manner. They will be involved in Sunday ministry, events and possibly schools ministry, depending on their skill and interest. They will grow in administrative and organisational skills and have the opportunity to work with key leaders to grow in ministry preparation and presentation, creativity and awareness of safe ministry practice in a variety of settings. From the practical to the spiritual, INK internship will help grow you and the kingdom.
WestCare Community Services is a Christ centred community based not-for-profit, non-government organisation that was established as the strategy of ImagineNations Church to help the needs of people in our city. This internship role will provide a great opportunity to engage with our community at the grassroots level and also be a part of helping so many lives in so many diverse ways!
Missions is the heart and soul of who we are as a church. As a church we work in 13 nations across a range of areas of church planting, social justice and community development. As an intern you will help us to administrate and communicate with partners help gather reports from the field and a variety of other projects in this key area of our church.
Youth EVENTS & CREATIVE INTERN
The last year has been an awesome experience. I have learnt so much about ministry life and what is involved in the running of a Youth Ministry. Over the course of the last 12 months, I have been given the opportunity to better my strengths and grow in my weaknesses, to learn how to work well in a team and learning how to develop my own. I would recommend Internship to anyone looking to go into full time ministry or anyone with a heart and passion for bettering God’s Kingdom.
Youth Discipleship Intern
Internship this year has been a great experience. I have developed many skills over the past 12 months. My relationship with God has grown through this past year and I have also experienced what it is like to be in a ministry position. Internship would be great for anyone wishing to go into ministry or wanting to grow in God.
Kids Scripture Intern
Internship has been a year where I have been challenged, stretched and inspired. I have been given opportunities that I never thought I would have, and have been able to see how I can be used by God to further His Kingdom even in the every day tasks. This has been a year where I have been given permission to dream bigger dreams, to do more and be more. I have loved every minute and am so excited about what God has in store for the future!
