Christians Concerned for the Community is pleased to provide an internship opportunity for volunteers interested in a more extensive experience. Interns will work in all areas of CCC’s ministry to the Alachua County area, and may choose to focus on a specific area after experiencing all areas.
Interns will take part in Christian community development first-hand as they join with staff, volunteers, and neighbors to take part in ministry service projects, help meet the spiritual and physical needs of our neighbors, and foster human development in our community. Interns will learn models of ministry from the staff, and will learn to love and assist neighbors through practical mean.
