AREAS OF MINISTRY
When the disciples debated who among them, who was the greatest, Jesus sat a little child in their midst and said that the greatest reality was in front of them. It's our privilege to call that greatness out of children whether in church or out in the city by introducing them to the reality of Jesus and leading them on the adventure of following him as a disciple. If you want to be stretched, loved, encouraged and experience the kingdom of God in incredible ways then come join us on the adventure.
Audio / Visual
The A/V team is one of the most crucial parts of our gathered environments. They work hard to set the table for people to come encounter God. They remove distractions, they present the platform for communication pieces to be received, they amplify the message of the Gospel, and they create pathways for people to engage with worship. If you have experience with running sound, lighting or visuals, editing podcasts, or even if you don’t have much experience, but you’d like to learn, we’d love to have you join the AV team.
We aim to reach and raise up a generation of teenagers in the city of San Diego, seeing them come alive to the hope available to them in Jesus. We don’t only want to see youth come to faith in Jesus, but we want to encourage and inspire them to discover their God-given purpose and potential to make a difference in the world. As a church plant, we are in the very beginning stages of building ministry to reach and equip youth in our city. It’s a prime place to dig in, and learn to build something from the ground up. Your internship in pioneering a youth ministry, will involve getting out of your comfort zone and walking in leadership as we go out into the schools, the streets and anywhere where God calls us, bringing life to this teenage community.
In worship, we don’t escape the real world, we introduce the real world. We, though music and cries of the heart, help people to “Taste and see that God is good.” Through this opportunity you will learn how to sacrifice, surrender, and lead to create environments of honor where God is treasured above all else. If you are a musician or a worship leader, come and be part of our growing worship team for the time you are here.
Media & Communications
Media is one of the most powerful ways humans can communicate truth and insight today. Our media team are innovative, passionate and creative. Through our digital content and production, we want to equip and challenge followers of Jesus and captivate those who don't know Him yet. We are passionate about sharing the vision of Commonwealth and telling the stories of what's happening here to our local community and the nations. Your internship will see you involved in the ministry of storytelling and building faith – so if you have a passion for beautiful, creative and innovative digital content and want to do create media with Kingdom insight and purpose, then this is the internship for you!
Has God gifted you with an ability to see gaps, build structures, pay attention to detail, and create order that brings freedom? Then the logistics team is for you. Here at Commonwealth, we value numbers, but not for the sake of prestige or looking impressive, but because we know that every number represents a person. Every email is connected to a heart, every dollar given represents a sacrifice from a place of worship, every plan represents a set-apart-space for God to do what He wants with. So if you’re good with numbers, plans, structures, and organization, join the logistics team!
We believe that prayer changes things in the world around us - things on a macro-level, and even things on a micro-level. We seek to be a community that is a consistently praying for our city and with our city. If you love to not only linger in the presence of God in prayer, but if you’re willing to take your prayers to the streets and see God heal, deliver, save, and bring hope to those outside the walls of the church, then this internship is for you. We will go out into every corner of society and pray that God’s Kingdom will come and His will will be done, right here, as it is in heaven.
Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” If you love to roll up your sleeves and find practical ways to demonstrate the love and compassion of the Father to those who are weary, lost, lonely, and hurting, then be a part of the Compassion ministry. You will participate in all different kinds of outreaches to those in need in San Diego, and you may even have a chance to participate in some compassion initiatives in nearby Mexico. We’re committed to being a church that cares about both mercy and miracles, as we pray passionately and boldly for healing for the sick, but also meet physical needs with whatever means we have available to us as well. If you have a heart for the broken, the poor, the lost, and the lonely, this internship is for you.
