Paid Internships in McDowell County WV

Mustard Seeds & Mountains has openings for college students to work as paid interns each summer.

Interns oversee volunteer groups who do home repair for needy, elderly and disabled people. Interns interact with local Appalachian families while providing direction to teams who have come to work on their homes. It is also the intern’s responsibility to manage the facility where volunteers stay.

While serving, interns explore topics such as: the culture of poverty, community development principles, evangelism techniques, group dynamics, leadership principles, home repair, spiritual growth and warfare, teamwork in ministry, and general servant-hood.

Interns will receive free housing, meals, & a generous stipend at the end of the summer. Interns are encouraged to do some fund-raising to help.

Length of Service:
Service time normally runs from mid-May to mid-August but we are flexible with this schedule, realizing that school schedules can vary.
