Subject: Paid IT and Web Internships with Portland Christian Schools


Portland Christian Schools is offering two paid internship opportunities in the IT and Website/Marketing fields for the 2013-2013 academic year. Interns must be college graduates with a degree in computer science or a related field and be at least 21 years of age. You will find the job descriptions attached.

While we have posted these positions with campus job boards, in previous years we have found it is also effective to email department heads and academic advisors since they often pass job and internship opportunities directly to their students. If you know of any recent graduates who would be interested in either of our internships, we would welcome their applications.

If you have any questions about the positions please feel free to contact us. Thank you for your time.

Portland Christian Schools
2013 -2014 Vision and Call Internship INFORMATION

The PCS internship program is designed to provide young leaders with a balance of learning and service in a Christian educational environment.  Each intern will be involved in observation, training, education, and practice at both of our campuses. Through a variety of experiences, interns will have the opportunity to mature and develop skills in the theory and practice of Christian education.

Interns will focus on specific areas of learning and service; each intern will also receive varied exposure to the total ministry of Portland Christian Schools.  Experiences will include:

*         Training and study with administrators, teachers, and students

*         Ministry practice in a school setting

*         Practicum in specific fields of study

*         A variety of activities related to the non-profit needs of Christian education

*         General administrative work

It is our desire that, through this program, our Vision & Call interns will  have the opportunity to learn best practices as they relate to the non-profit world, to internalize the importance of policies and procedures in the realm of education administration, to gain an understanding of the relationships within the professional matrix, to become comfortable as contributing committee members, and to become familiar with the impact a Christian school society has on the learning environment and on the community at large.  Interns will be exposed to all aspects of Portland Christian Schools and the ministry we provide in educating students through a biblical world view.

The goals of the PCS Internship Program are:

1.   To provide hands-on training opportunities for individuals to develop leadership qualities and skills.
2.   To foster an environment which nurtures a Biblical perspective on education, instruction, communication, and learning.

We hope to accomplish these goals through the following objectives:

1.      To train individuals for active Christian leadership responsibilities in an educational ministry.

2.      To enhance individual methods of student facilitation, communication, and teaching practices.

3.      To model and teach the importance of discipleship relationships, one-on-one relationships, and community relationships.

4.      To provide life-context experiences with students and faculty in which Christ-like actions and attitudes can be modeled.

5.      To allow interns opportunities to intentionally seek God's will for life direction.

Through a generous grant by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust<http://www.murdock-trust.org/>, Portland Christian's 2013-2014 interns will receive a stipend.  This support is funded through the Trust's Vision and Call Grant, which is designed to support and inspire young leaders exploring a call into fields of vocational ministry.
