Introduction to the Internship | Worship Internship #1

Topic #1 Article

This eighteen-topic course can be completed at your own pace, but we find that giving about 3 weeks to each lesson is ideal to complete the course within a year’s time while synthesizing the content well. We recommend having interns and their mentor or group meet at least once every 3 weeks to check in on what they are learning and applying to their lives, using the “Topics Journal” and “Reading Journal” as a guide for the conversation. You may then go to the individual articles and readings for more specific questions if needed to help flesh out the conversation.

If Completing with a Group:

Review the discussion questions listed for each article and address the relevant questions for your interns as a group. Apply the same principle if mentoring one-on-one. Have your interns come to each meeting prepared with having all article topics read and all assigned reading finished. This will allow for the most fruitful discussion possible.

If Completing by Yourself:

Complete the readings and journal entries for each topic. The instructions for how to do this are listed for each topic lesson. The journal entries will be a crucial part of your understanding and application of the principles in the internship. If you are able to talk with a mentor or friend about the discussion questions listed in the article posts (covered in the “Discuss” segment of each topic), this will allow you to have a more complete application of the course as if you were completing it with a group. It’s good to touch base on your learning at least every three weeks as you go with your mentor or friend since there is a lot of content you don’t want to forget about. If you want to a simple tool to print and use as a template for how to fill out these journal questions, please click here on the “Discussion Topics Journal Template” and “Reading Journal Template.” The “Discussion Topics Journal – Open Format Template” is an additional journaling resource for when you need a template that better fits the unique questions and reflections for that lesson like Topic Lessons 7 – 12 for example.

What Do the “Levels” Mean?

In the “Read” segment of each lesson, there are four levels listed which correspond to the nature of the internship you want to pursue. The first level is the entry-level internship pace while the fourth level is the most advanced. Level 1 is required to complete the course and each additional level is optional based on the degree of growth you hope to see at the completion of the internship course. You are responsible to record your reflections in your Reading Journal for each book you read, as this is an important part of understanding and integrating the content.

What about “Plan A” and “Plan B”?

In the “Read” segment of each lesson, you’ll notice a “Plan A” option and a “Plan B” option. “Plan A” is a reading option for those who enjoy getting a wide sample size of different content within one topic’s lesson and find that this type of multitasking helps them learn well. “Plan B” is a reading option for those with more of a linear approach to learning who find that focusing on reading one book at a time is most helpful in learning the content. Even though both plans are laid out differently, they cover the same material over the course of the internship.

Worship Leading Workshop

Worship Leading Workshop

We recommend having a facilitator or leader of your internship to lead this workshop.

Select a group of interns (representing a variety of musical roles) and appoint a team leader to organize the band and plan a worship set to lead a time of worship for your other interns or church leaders. The band does not necessarily need every instrument of a typical worship band. This will allow the band to grow together in creativity and resourcefulness. After the set interact with the band and talk about what went well, what they can grow in, and what they will apply for leading future worship sets.

Worship Leading Workshop

Worship Leading Workshop 2

We recommend having a facilitator or leader of your internship to lead this workshop.

After participating in the first worship leading workshop, select a secondary group of students (representing a variety of musical roles) and appoint a team leader to plan a worship set and organize a band for leading a time of worship for your other interns or church leaders. After the set, talk about what went well, what they can grow in, and what they will apply for leading future worship sets.  The band does not necessarily need every instrument or role of a typical worship band. This will allow the band to grow together in creativity and resourcefulness.

Final Assignments Due and Internship Series Reflection

Topics Journal and Reading Journal due. Have your interns submit their Topics Journal and Reading Journal to you for review. Aim for evaluating the comprehension of the course as a whole — that they are integrating and assimilating the information and applying it to their lives. Also, look to see how they are different as a result of the internship than when they started.

Worship Matters book review. Help your interns apply the extra learning they have done in the internship through a verbal or written book review. For a verbal book review, ask the interns to reflect upon the most meaningful content for them in each chapter and what it means practically for them in worship arts. Ascertain whether they attained a good grasp of the content in the book. For a written review, we recommend a format similar to this.

Worship Internship training overview.  How was the internship experience for those participating? What went well and what could be improved? Taking note of the insights given is a valuable step to growing in your program. We recommend a format similar to this.

Final group discussion. What are some of the big-picture highlights in the training series? Select key themes from the series topics and additional learning content and ask interns to reflect on their learnings.

Celebrate! Consider having the last part of the lesson serves as a time to celebrate together as a group what was learned during the internship series. Food is always good! Celebrating together helps keep your ministry area strong and continuing to grow – in effectiveness, relationships, and vibrancy.
