Want to grow in your faith and serve God with your gifts?
Arise Internships provide a unique opportunity to learn, serve and grow!
What is the Arise Volunteer Internship Program?
Arise is a 12-month program designed for young adults who are looking for a growth opportunity while they are transitioning between school and what lies ahead.
Arise focuses on building a faith foundation where character is built, identity in Christ is revealed, and questions of faith explored, while living and serving in a Christian community.
Arise Volunteer Internships are based at Warrambui Retreat and Conference Centre, near Murrumbateman, NSW (40 minutes north of Canberra). Warrambui is a not-for-profit camp and conference centre that hosts school, community and church groups throughout the year, and it is a project of the Lutheran Church of Australia NSW/ACT District.
What does an Intern year look like?
Interns experience practical aspects of ministry by working, living and learning alongside others in a camp setting.
Throughout the year we intentionally seek to build a faith foundation that will grow the Interns’ Christian faith and character. We grow valuable life skills and ministry experience that will benefit the individual and the communities they are involved with after Warrambui.
To achieve this goal, we have three core elements that help grow the Interns:
- Volunteer service tasks to Warrambui (e.g. Kitchen work, Cleaning, School Programs)
- Study units towards a Certificate IV in Christian Ministry and Theology
- Personal growth and Leadership Development through involvement in youth camps, youth groups, congregational visits, and team times.
Being part of a Christian community doesn’t mean things are always rosy, but we continue to praise and thank God for the tough times to grow and work through the differences in people’s behaviours and attitudes.
The Warrambui Team
Arise Interns live on-site at Warrambui, along with a number of the Warrambui staff. All team members are expected to display Christian morals and character, individually and towards each other.
Living and serving together in a close Christian community creates an atmosphere of accountability and responsibility towards each other and our guests.
A key component of the Intern program is completing units of study towards a Certificate IV in Christian Ministry and Theology (10742NAT)* through Australian Lutheran College (ALC) with the support of the Ministry Development Manager.
This study provides a great opportunity for Interns to dig deeper into God’s word and be given some practical tools to equip them to minister God’s love to others in their chosen vocation beyond Warrambui.
*ALC is a member college of the Adelaide College of Divinity RTO# 4863
What do we look for in an Intern?
The Arise Intern Team looks different each year!
Warrambui is looking for young adults (18+) who have a passion to grow, a heart of service, and a desire to learn and be the best person they can be.
We also look for people who have a teachable attitude, a good work ethic and a desire to know Jesus more.
