Ignite Intern

Website JSCMinistry Jesuit Spiritual Center at Milford

Serving All People Seeking God

The Ignite Internship is a year-long ministry internship at the Jesuit Spiritual Center, a Catholic retreat center in Milford, Ohio. The program’s focus is on youth retreats, but it also provides interns with skills and experience applicable to wider areas of ministry. Since the Internship’s beginning in 1975, more than 120 people of different backgrounds have completed the program including men, women, seminarians and religious. Graduates have gone on to work as youth ministers, DRE’s, campus ministers, educators, teachers, social workers, counselors, and spiritual directors.

The internship involves full-time membership on the Youth Ministry Team, working in retreat ministry, primarily with high school and junior high students. During the year-long program, interns will facilitate approximately 30 overnight retreats and 25 one-day retreats or DORs (Days of Reflection). In addition, the intern will serve as part of the overall team of staff at the JSC and enjoy the company of those who fill a variety of other positions at the Center. Interns are also given an opportunity to discern a second year of commitment.

This past year, the JSC added a residential component to the internship, allowing individuals from across the country to participate. Interns live on the grounds of the Center in an intentional faith community, overseen by a Community Life Coordinator. Community members share not only in their ministerial work, but meals, prayer, and fellowship.

Applications are due by April 15th, 2018.
