1 BAREFOOT CHURCH SCHOOL of MINISTRY Internship Program 2015/2016 DESCRIPTION The Barefoot Church School of Ministry Internship Program (BCSMIP) provides a holistic development model for our interns that creates environments not only for ministry purposes but personal and spiritual growth. The internship program is designed to equip young people through empowerment-driven access inside of ministry, Bible courses through the School of Ministry s degree program, discipleship, and development of leadership skills. Our leaders aspire for interns to discover success of longevity in ministry. Interns have the opportunity to serve in a variety of ministry settings through the Barefoot Church campuses and our world class conference center. The experience you will receive at BCSMIP is an opportunity for exponential growth in your life. The BCSM main campus is located in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and is a non-profit institution with the primary purpose of preparing people to be fully devoted followers of Christ. As an institution that offers only religious and theological degrees, we are exempt from oversight by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education. We are currently seeking accreditation for the degrees we offer. Donations to the school are tax deductible as the school is a subsidy of Barefoot Church. MISSION STATEMENT The mission of BCSMIP is to develop Christian leaders into becoming fully devoted followers of Christ who make Christ known throughout the earth and help others discover their God-given potential. We aim to intentionally advance individuals to live a life of significance. VISION Understanding and being committed to the vision of the house is vital to Barefoot Church, and thus a vital part of BCSMIP. We leverage program participants skills, gifts, talents, and abilities to develop their character, calling, and competency as they participate in the mission of Barefoot Church. GREATER BIBLICAL UNDERSTANDING Obtaining a solid Biblical understanding is a key to success in ministry. This is attained through the School of Ministry courses in apologetics, Bible, theology, missions, leadership, Greek and Hebrew languages, and much more. Our goal is to produce a well-rounded Biblical base that an intern will be able to utilize no matter the setting. Interns will attend the School of Ministry classes one day a week. Classes are taught by various men and women from all walks of life. You will receive a biblical perspective investment from the decades of combined experience these instructors will provide. MINISTRY TEAMS Interns fully experience the real world realities of working at Barefoot Church, and get to be a part of day-today operations as well as meetings and team building, and will have high access to staff. Interns gifts and skills will be uncovered as they serve at Barefoot Church weekend experiences, outreaches, and in other various ministry settings. Interns will learn ministry through hands-on experience as they serve throughout the church under experienced and committed staff and ministry leaders.

2 BAREFOOT CHURCH VALUES Hospitality - It s showing people kindness as a demonstration of a God who has shown us incredible kindness. Our actions and attitudes can help people understand they matter to God. Honor up, honor down, honor all around. Authenticity - Keeping it real. We are real people doing real life. Simplicity - Not to be mistaken for simple-mindedness. We are very intentional to make sure that everything we do is clear and engaging. It s putting the message of Christ on a shelf that everyone can access. Progress - We are constantly gauging whether or not our methods of presenting the message are effective. The message never changes, but the methods will. In a rapidly transforming culture, we are always progressing to reach more people. Audacity - It s having the determination to run the race and the courage to reach the next level. We have committed to never throw in the towel, to never give up. We relentlessly pursue the mission to bring people along on the journey of knowing Christ and becoming all we were created to be. Leverage - We each have a significant purpose which we have been gifted uniquely to fulfill. We have the opportunity to use the time, energy, and resources God has put in our hands to advance the mission through serving in the local church. Excellence - Every detail matters. We serve an excellent God, and because His church is a representation of Him, everything we do should be excellent. We strive to do the very best we can with what s in our hands. Environments - How we set up an environment sets the tone for the overall experience. We aim to engage all five senses, through great attention to detail, to create the right atmosphere for someone to encounter God. IDENTIFY YOUR CALLING At Barefoot Church, we want interns to grow wholly in their heart, soul, mind, and strength. BCSMIP is designed to help interns begin the journey of identifying and discovering one s calling, purpose, spiritual gifts, and identity. Whether a graduate decides to go into full-time ministry or not, the ministry skills, discipleship, mentoring, Biblical knowledge, and degrees acquired in BCSM will be beneficial to help them live a life on purpose for God. MORE THAN A PROGRAM BCSMIP is more than just a program; it s an experience. It offers opportunities for interns to receive discipleship, hands-on ministry training experience, leadership development, and the chance to earn an associate degree in the first year. BCSMIP seeks individuals who are High School graduates or have obtained a GED, and are years of age who see the value in discipleship, are willing to roll up their sleeves, and hit the ground running with the audacity to take ground for Christ. They are passionate about serving, love people, and are looking to partner with the vision of Barefoot Church to reach the world through the local church. While BCSMIP is exciting and fun, it is challenging and requires a high commitment level and a sacrifice of time. The requirements interns will find in these pages are designed to achieve the mission of BCSM to build up fully devoted followers of Christ and leaders that have a passion for God and to live a life of integrity. Interns are held to a high level of integrity and accountability due to their influence as a leader in the church and community. See the BCSMIP Code of Conduct for these standards. BCSMIP offers a 10-month unpaid internship from August to May as well as an 8 week unpaid Summer Internship from June to July. There are options, upon recommendation, for up to three years of training through BCSM. FULL-TIME BCMSIP is designed for individuals desiring to pursue full-time vocational ministry. Interns fully experience the realities of working at a church, and get to be a part of staff meetings, team- building activities, as well as have access to staff for specialized training and mentoring. Since the required commitment is at least 25 hours per week (not including class time), interns are able to hold a consistent part-time job. Interns are required to be present at a Barefoot Church campus each Saturday from 3pm-8pm, Sundays 8am-1:30pm, first Saturday of each month from 9am-8pm, and Mondays-Thursday, along with any other events, programs, or times deemed Barefoot Church School of Ministry Internship Program Page 2

3 necessary by the BCSM leadership. Interns will have off most Fridays, but are on- call 24/7. Hours and report times may vary depending on the ministry team you will serve with. PART-TIME This option is for individuals desiring the 8- week summer internship June-July. They may have a part-time job during the summer program. The summer program is for those ready to be pushed, challenged, and stretched to new levels along their journey. The summer internship is designed for those who are ready to make a difference during their summer. The summer interns are expected to serve on weekends as well as during the weekdays. It doesn't matter where you come from or where you were heading; the summer internship is for anyone years old, who are ready to serve the local church and impact the world! Report times will vary depending on the ministry team you sign up with. HOUSING Full-time Interns will be asked to live at home if they are within an hour drive from the campus they are assigned to. If the intern is further that an hour s drive, they have the option of living in a host home and are asked to aid in the search for their housing arrangements. Housing must be approved by the BCSMIP leadership. It is highly encouraged that interns seek out the most inexpensive housing option possible. If an intern needs a place to live, BCSM will assist the intern in finding housing, such as a low-cost apartment with other interns, or a host home of someone from within Barefoot Church. This is dependent upon the number of host homes available. Interns should seek to live in an environment understanding of the demands and standards of the program. 1 st -3 rd YEAR INTERNSHIP DESCRIPTIONS To catapult interns into the destiny God has for their lives and to equip them to be world changers, we offer up to three years of training. The goal of these three years is to train up potential administrators, event planners, graphic designers, kid and student pastors, lead pastors, missionaries, production and worship leaders, along with other various church staff positions, with the necessary gift sets to be sent out to serve. Interns thrive when they become a part of planning and running weekend and mid-week services, planning events, attending staff meetings, connecting visitors to the church, gaining computer and videography skills, creating promotional pieces, counseling, preaching, teaching, marketing strategies, receiving discipleship, learning pastoral responsibilities, developing in leadership, evangelism, building teams and understanding team dynamics, learning ministry etiquette and ethics, along with implementing Biblical principles into the ministry team and more. Interns will learn hands-on ministry by serving in an area that exposes them to a variety of aspects of ministry. The BCSM courses are offered to our interns at no cost. FIRST YEAR INTERN The first year of BCSMIP is about facilitating an environment for the intern to see the reality of ministry from a holistic perspective. Interns will learn the value of flexibility in the context of serving the vision of the local church. First year interns will be exposed to environments that will build their character, teamwork, work ethic, and life skills needed for longevity in ministry. Interns will serve on a ministry team but will be exposed to multiple different ministries, and will also have full exposure to church life, as well as serve in a specific ministry area the entire 10 months in order to learn and experience the practical everyday life in real ministry. Interns will also build a biblical foundation for ministry, and have the opportunity to receive credits for an Associate of Arts in Bible and Theology degree. SECOND YEAR INTERN The second year of BCSMIP is designed to develop the intern as a leader, in discipleship, and mentor relationships. Interns will serve in a specific ministry throughout the entire year in order to fine-tune their skills, spiritual gifts, skills, and abilities. They will have the opportunity to serve in an area related to their passion and calling, and receive a more personalized training experience in one of the ministry teams. Second year interns will take courses in missions, methods of teaching, advance leadership, Greek, and apologetics, along with many more courses designed to propel them forward in their career path. They will receive even more Barefoot Church School of Ministry Internship Program Page 3

4 access into ministry by participating in conferences (when available), and receive more leadership responsibilities. The second year intern must have completed all requirements for a first year intern. The second year internship continues without interruption upon completion of the first year requirements. Second year interns will have the opportunity to receive half of the credits needed to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with a minor in Leadership to be completed during the third year internship. Interns may only apply for the second year of BCSMIP upon recommendation of BCSM staff. THIRD YEAR INTERN The third year of BCSMIP is designed for interns to secure where God is leading them as they solidify God s calling on their lives, while empowering and building themselves as Barefoot Church or other church staff potential candidates. Third year interns will meet all requirements set forth in the first and second year internship description. The third year intern has the opportunity to take courses to finish the necessary credits for a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with a minor in Leadership. Interns may only apply for the third year of BCSM upon recommendation of BCSM staff. CODE OF CONDUCT An important goal is for each intern to facilitate growth and development of Christian character and leadership in line with Biblical principles. Interns are looked upon by others as examples of how to live, give, act, serve, respond, and love. It is expected that interns live in a manner that brings honor to God in their behavior and attitudes both in and outside of the church setting. Although these standards may not affect one s spiritual standing, they do strengthen the life and testimony of the intern, BCSMIP, and Barefoot Church. Therefore, interns are expected to follow codes of conduct that should not be taken legalistically, but as boundaries for protection and integrity while in BCSMIP. Each intern is expected to: Deepen their relationship with God and make knowing God priority. Communicate a spirit of excellence in speech, conduct, appearance, and attitude. Be neat, clean, well-groomed, and modestly dressed. Develop leadership skills by taking initiative, both verbally and practically. Encourage other interns, be a team player, and build solid relationships with others. Be willing to roll up your sleeves, go the second mile, and serve wherever needed. Be prompt and faithful in attendance to all report times, scheduled classes and activities. Avoid attitudes such as greed, jealousy, pride, bitterness, needless anger, discrimination, and behavior such as gossip, divisiveness, and complaining which disrupt the unity and health of the church body. Allow God to shape your character. Come under the authority and covering of Barefoot Church, its staff, and leaders. Maintain the culture and DNA of Barefoot Church in all environments. Show respect for staff and volunteers and cooperate with the endeavors of Barefoot Church School of Ministry and Barefoot Church. Attend all prescribed classes, ministry courses, and activities required unless formally excused. Submit all assigned work by the due dates. Refrain from dishonest academic practices, such as plagiarism, lying, or cheating. Abstain from biblically immoral practices including drunkenness, stealing, slanderous or profane language, selfharm, dishonesty, occult practices, sexual sins (premarital sex, adultery and homosexuality) or any other behavior that is considered detrimental to Christian character and witness. Interns are expected to refrain from any alcoholic beverage, bar/club, misuse of medication and drugs, and smoking while in BCSMIP. Unity A united team is vital to the growing ministries of Barefoot Church. Any negativity towards other interns, volunteers, staff, or procedures that is expressed to any individual is especially detrimental. Interns are expected to support the ministries of Barefoot. Issues should always be handled and addressed directly to an appropriate staff person. Gossip will not be tolerated. Negativity is grounds for immediate dismissal from the BCSMIP. Barefoot Church School of Ministry Internship Program Page 4

5 Integrity Above reproach: So good as to preclude any possibility of criticism. This truth should transform our hearts and produce within us increasing desire to flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, disciplining ourselves for godliness. You are expected to conduct yourself in a manner worthy of being called a Christ follower. Will you mess up? Yes! Will you make mistakes? Yes! You are human, so that is going to happen. Living above reproach takes thought, time, practice, and prayer. You are considered to be a leader and are expected to act like one at all times. Guard your actions and tongue by not allowing yourself to be put in a situation that will cause your integrity or motive to be in question. With this in mind, no intern will be allowed to be alone with the opposite gender at any time unless there is another person (13 and over) present with the two parties. This includes activities inside the church and outside the walls as well. We understand this is sometimes extremely difficult but with a little preplanning your integrity will remain intact and without any questions. It can be done. Social Media Posts on your social media outlets should be encouraging and uplifting to the reader. You should not post anything that would be considered offensive by another person on social media outlets including but not limited to: tweets, retweets, likes, status updates, snap chats, vines, hashtags, and comments that could cause someone to stumble. 1 Cor. 10:32 (NIV) BCSM will provide the framework and support needed to bring personal growth. If you find that you are genuinely struggling with such issues, we advise that you speak to the BCSM leadership and allow them to bring guidance, counsel, and correction to your situation. Any behavior that violates the intern Code of Conduct will result in disciplinary action and may lead to removal from Barefoot Church School of Ministry Internship Program. FAQ Can I have a job or attend college while I am in the Barefoot Church School of Ministry? It is possible to have a part-time job while you are an intern. We want interns to be focused on hearing from God and serving in an environment where specialized ministry training can be cultivated. In that case a full-time job will not be possible to maintain. In order for interns to get the most out of this training experience, we suggest a minimal hour part-time job that does not interfere with the weekends and mid-week experiences that may fall under the ministry team you serve in. What are the rules on dating for Barefoot Church School of Ministry interns? The intern program is designed to create an environment for interns to cultivate extreme growth in their relationship with God. All of the requirements and rules established are to help foster a focused period of time to seek the heart of God in all areas of one s life. We believe that for interns to make the most out of this time and give themselves fully to God, wholeheartly and undistracted, it is a must for them to abstain from entering into a new dating relationship for the duration of their first ten months in the internship program. Potential interns currently in a long-term relationship should set up a meeting with the BCSM leadership prior to applying to seek counsel on the current relationship. Second year interns are allowed to date, but must still adhere to the specific guidelines above. No intern will be allowed to date a student. A student is defined as someone who has yet to complete the 12 th grade of school whether private, public, homeschool, seeking a GED, or is a drop-out. No intern may date another intern unless approved by BCSM leadership. Barefoot Church School of Ministry Internship Program Page 5

Interns will be expected to attend all classes unless prevented by illness or emergency. 2. Interns may not miss more than 2 classes per course, unless excused, and will have to re-take the course as an Independent Study course. If an interns absence is unexcused they will lose points for that class. If a weekend experience is missed the intern may be required to do an Independent Study Course. ISC is further defined below. 3. One occasion of arriving late for a class or leaving early from class will count as one absence, whether excused or unexcused. If an intern misses fifteen minutes or more of class, it will be considered an absence. Interns are not permitted to leave class before it is dismissed. 4. An intern is considered late if not in the appropriate classroom at the official start of class. 5. A grade of F will be assigned to interns who fail to attend class the minimum number of hours. 6. Any intern exceeding the maximum number of absences may appeal to the BCSMIP leadership to have the grade of F changed. 7. For every absence, interns must fill out a Time-Off Request Form prior to the absence for approval and records In the event of an emergency absence, interns must submit a Time-Off Request form the next day they return stating classes/dates missed. The intern must also contact the BCSMIP leadership to let them know of the absence as well. Time-Off Request forms turned in more than one week after the intern returns to BCSM will not be accepted no matter the reason, and the intern will receive an F for that class. 8. The same policy applies for a tardy. The intern must submit a Time-Off Request form after a tardy has occurred to see if it will be excused. 9. If an absence or tardy was unexcused, the intern will lose all points that could have been earned for that class day. Interns will be notified whether the absence or tardy is excused or unexcused. Until the Time- Off Request form has been filled out and approved the intern automatically receives an F for that class. 10.

9 Endnotes/footnotes, or works cited pages cannot be counted toward the required length of the papers. ACADEMIC HONESTY Most of the points given are based on the honesty of the intern. It is assumed that all interns have such a relationship with God that they would not want to dishonor Him by being manipulative, deceitful, or dishonest. Interns are expected to not lie or cheat. Interns that break this standard may be subject to removal, or disciplinary action will be taken on a case by case basis. It is not expected that interns be perfect, but it is expected that they be honest. POLICY ON RESEARCH AND PLAGIARISM Plagiarism: to steal and pass off as one s own; use without crediting the source. While fully supporting the use of tools, reference works, the internet, and other available media, BCSM requires that all of the work submitted by interns for grades and evaluation be the result of their own writing efforts and creative processes. We encourage you to use all information available for the purpose of supporting your work; however, you must clearly identify quotes and excerpts as the work of another author, and properly cite the source. Interns should be advised that plagiarism in any form is prohibited, and that work containing plagiarized materials will be downgraded and returned for resubmission. Continued instances of plagiarism will result in disciplinary measures. COURSE PROCESS Interns enrolled are responsible for knowing and meeting all course requirements and attendance rules. INDEPENDENT STUDY COURSES In the case that an intern fails a course they will be required to re-take the course to complete their degree requirements. The course will be taken as an Independent Study Course. The BCSM leadership will also assign a deadline for the courses completion. Interns will be required to use the time outside of their normal internship scheduled classes, intern areas, and activities to complete these courses. EXTENSION Petitioning for an extension on an assignment must be submitted at least TWO weeks prior to the scheduled due date on an official BCSM Appeal form. Only in extreme circumstances will the extension be granted. If an emergency occurs within two weeks of the assignment or due date, the intern must still fill out an Appeal form as soon as possible, and the emergency circumstances will be taken into account. Any extension or re-submission of an assignment approved by BCSM staff will result in a deduction of the grade automatically regardless of the circumstance. PRIORITY It is important for every intern to set a sound, disciplined schedule. Don t neglect your personal prayer, devotion time, and family life, but seek balance with your studies, ministry, and family. Interns will be expected to schedule around all scheduled classes and activities, but will be offered adequate vacation days and excused absences. If an intern struggles with this balance and would like counseling, they may contact the BCSM leadership to set up a time to discuss. SO THIS IS NOT MISUNDERSTOOD HERE IS THE DATING POLICY ONCE AGAIN! The internship program is designed to create an environment for interns to cultivate extreme growth in their relationship with God. All of the requirements and rules established are to help foster a focused period of time to seek the heart of God in all areas of one s life.
