Columba House Internships

Columba House Internships are great ways to grow in your spiritual and professional life. Christian community provides the spiritual and practical environment for worship, feedback, and growth. During the day, Interns serve with a variety of parishes and non-profit organizations that train them for long term work and leadership in and out of Church circles.

We provide two different internship terms for people to live in Columba House:

School Year

  • Who?
    • Christian young adults (about ages 20-35) who are interested in deepening their spiritual lives in the Anglican tradition and building their resumés with quality internship experience. We accept Episcopalians and other baptized Christians interested in the Episcopal tradition.
  • What?
    • Residential Christian community and part-time work with a local parish or service organization. CHS provides robust spiritual formation following a simple community Rule of Life. Our community is founded on daily prayer and daily meals, inspired by ancient Christian monasticism. On site, you’ll receive practical training in service work, whether in or out of church contexts.
  • When?
    • August 22, 2016 – April 30, 2017
  • Where?
    • This year, internships are only available at Columba House Savannah. Our House is located in walking/biking distance from the historic downtown Savannah district. Our Internship Partners are found all over the Savannah Metro area.

Summer

  • Who?
    • The summer program is aimed specifically at seminarians on summer break. The summer term is so short that our interns need to be mature enough to handle the rapid transition. We accept Episcopalians and other Christians interested in the Episcopal tradition.
  • What? 
    • We aim to provide future Christian ministers with a spiritual community in and out of the house. They will serve local parishes under the mentorship of experienced Episcopal priests, who set the agenda for their ministry internships. Interns will pray and eat together daily, following a simple Rule of Life.
  • When?
    • May 21, 2017 – August 6, 2017
  • Where?
    • This year, internships are only available at Columba House Savannah. Our House is located in walking/biking distance from the historic downtown Savannah district. Our Internship Partners are found all over the Savannah Metro area.
