Bible, Religion, Ministry, and Interfaith Studies
- Servant Leadership School – Interns at the Servant Leadership School help to run community classes and a speaker
series on faith and social justice. These events engage community members on topics
of money, racism, local and international violence, and many others, to give space
for spiritual formation, to cultivate spiritual leaders, and to transform the community.
- Shoulder-to-Shoulder is an interfaith organization dedicated to ending anti-Muslim sentiment by strengthening
the voice of freedom and peace.
- WATER: Women’s Alliance for Theology, Ethic, and Ritual – At WATER, interns are integrated into the all-women staff of this feminist theology organization.
Interns can expect to help organize events, maintain the WATER website, work in the largest library of women’s theology texts in the world, and create
lasting relationships with the co-founders, volunteers, and interns.
- Sojourner’s Magazine – Interns support Sojourner’s mission to articulate the biblical call to social justice,
inspiring hope and building a movement to transform individuals, communities, the
church, and the world. Interns can join this faithful community in a number of ways,
including writing, editing, marketing, circulation and development.
- Jubilee USA Network – Work with a network of faith-based organizations to advocate that the US government
and international financial institutions provide debt relief and economic justice
for peoples worldwide.
- MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) Washington Office – Join the voice of the Mennonite Church on Capitol Hill through research and writing
on a variety of justice issues. Interns are encouraged to focus on a topic of interest
to them and the Mennonite Church, and to compile background information and calls
to action in memos that are distributed to political leaders and constituents.
- Faith & Politics Institute – This organization has served hundreds of members of Congress and congressional staff
by offering experiential pilgrimages, reflection groups, retreats and public forums.
This internship is best suited for spring semester students, as they have the opportunity
to accompany members of Congress on a “pilgrimage” to historic sites from the Civil
Rights Movement in Alabama.
- Interfaith Voices – Join “the nation’s leading religion news magazine on public radio” by working at
this award-winning radio show. Born out of a multifaith panel assembled for a call-in
show following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, this organization brings together spokespeople
from many faiths to reflect on current events. You will have the opportunity to offer
story ideas, research current events related to religion, contact guests for the show,
schedule interviews, and conduct pre-interviews.
