Lakeside Community Church is a church for people who have given up on church but not on God. As a church, we have a desire to reach out to people far from God and see them grow into passionate followers of Jesus. People are often first attracted to Lakeside by the friendly, loving atmosphere they find and learn that it is a healthy place to grow spiritually, emotionally and relationally.
Lakeside Community Church is in the small town of Algoma, Wisconsin on the shore of Lake Michigan. The area is striking with its beautiful water views and lush countryside. Algoma is the epitome of a small town quality of life and yet it’s only minutes away from Green Bay where you’ll find entertainment, family activities and cultural opportunities. It’s also the gateway to the beauty, culture and uniqueness of Door County.
The summer internship program at Lakeside is an intensive spiritual growth, leadership development and ministry immersion experience. You will be given the opportunity to learn from some great innovative thinkers and creators in ministry, participate in the day to day activities of church staff culture and stretch yourself as a leader. As a Summer Intern at Lakeside you will have the opportunity to learn from a church staff who loves what they do and loves to share their ministry and knowledge with others. Our heart is to help you find your place in the kingdom of God and help discern God's will for your life – the how, where and what God is calling you to do.
This summer internship is a two month ministry opportunity for individuals who desire hands-on training and experience within the church body as they prepare for a future of serving in ministry. The program runs from June 1st through the end of July.
There is no cost to participate, but you will need to raise, or supply, the finances for your support during the internship period. It is a 40-plus hours per week job. There are some weeks you may actually work everyday. It's hard work...but it is very rewarding.
Summer Interns will select a ministry concentration in which they will focus their efforts but will gain a holistic understanding of working as a team within the church. Areas of concentration include: children's, youth and worship ministries.
We hold our interns in high esteem and view them as partners in ministry. During the summer you will engage with the Lakeside leadership community at several levels including weekly staff interaction.
The potential Summer Intern will submit a resume by April 30th to:

Other things you may be wondering about...
What qualifications are you looking for in a Summer Intern?
Most importantly, a heart after God. We do our best, by the grace of God to create an atmosphere and culture in our church where people follow God passionately, and are sold out to him and his purposes. Having some previous leadership and/or ministry experience is definitely a plus. Being flexible, having a good attitude, and good interpersonal skills are definitely a must to survive in ministry. We feel it is important to have good relational chemistry with you, and we weigh that with every decision.
Do I need a car?
Yes. There is quite a lot available in Algoma for being a small town but you will inevitably want to explore Door County – the “Cape Cod of the Midwest” and head into Green Bay (about a 40 minute drive) or other surrounding communities for added cultural experiences or shopping.
Can I get college credit?
At this time, we do not offer any programs with higher learning institutions that could result in college credit.
Does Lakeside provide housing?
Currently we do not have housing to provide for our Summer Interns, so you would be responsible for finding housing. However, we will do everything we can to help you find a great place to live.
Is the Summer Internship program Full or Part Time?
We think that to get the full experience and feel for the consistency of ministry, it is important that a Summer Intern be full time.
Can I seek part-time employment?
Certainly. You may seek employment while you are a Summer Intern at Lakeside. We ask, however, that ministry expectations and time requirements take precedent over outside work schedules.
