PASTORAL CARE – Caring for our church
Our pastoral care department deals with those in crises or in need of extra care. Interns in this department will be involved in our Life courses, food distribution, prayer request, hospital visits etc.
Our Groups team is a key pillar in all we do as a church. Our goal is that every person who walks into our church would experience a genuine sense of belonging and find community within our church family. We outwork this through our various Mid-week and Weekend Teams who love serving by having meaningful conversations and helping to get every person integrated into church community, through various Groups and Interest Groups, Volunteer teams, and helping New Christians on their discipleship journey. Practically, this involves interns helping with follow up calls and data entry to help integrate people into groups within the life of church.
Those with a love for children can help build and equip our children’s ministry. Hillsong Kids runs all Sunday morning. Not only will you be building into the children of our House, but also into the parents and the family as a whole. Mid-week responsibilities will include contacting new families and building relationships, building curriculum and crafts for Sunday programs, creatively implementing new decor, equipping yourself for upfront speaking and learning how to build teams.
13-17 year old:
Our youth department is for anyone who is passionate about investing into the next generation of high school students. Our mandate is “creating Christ-like, world changing young leaders”. Youth leaders give heart & soul to make our youth ministry strong on Friday nights, be in high schools mid-week and make Church pumping on Sundays.
Powerhouse is the 18-25 year old expression of Hillsong Church where we bring Jesus to our young adults by meeting them where they are at, in their season of life. We are passionately rewriting the narrative of students and young adults, mobilizing them, and showing that church is to be enjoyed and not endured. As well as that there is a hope for the future and we are all on this journey together. Powerhouse interns will play a pivotal role in coordinating student ministries on and off campus, organizing worship nights, Summerfest, 1825 Encounter conference and facilitating Connect Groups across the city.
26+ year old:
Interns in departments focusing on these age groups will help with building connect groups, reaching out in our local communities, organizing social events, planning worship & leadership nights, strategizing to get everyone in our age group connected into church and hosting hangouts after church on Sundays.
