WHAT IS THE NEED?
As a part of your time with Love Thy Neighborhood, consider spending 20-30 hours per week doing an internship with Sojourn Church Midtown, a multicultural church in the Shelby Park neighborhood of Louisville.
Sojourn Church Midtown started in 2000, engaging the people of their urban neighborhood with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Midtown cares about the souls of men and women first, but also physical needs, music, the arts, and community life. They exist to reach people with the gospel, build them together as a multicultural church, and send leaders, church planters, and missionaries all over the world as well as send their members into Louisville as witnesses to the gospel.
Since 2012, Sojourn Church Midtown has been located in the Shelby Park neighborhood, which is a diverse and urban neighborhood in the most impoverished zip code of Louisville. The church has a conviction and a vision to be a place where all residents of Shelby Park feel loved and welcome, and since moving to Shelby Park, church leaders have been shepherding their members towards gospel reconciliation and discipleship across all cultural lines.
There are a couple different ways you can get involved with serving at Midtown.
Serve with Sojourn Kids for a summer! As a part of this internship, you will help plan VBS and other kids programming, build relationships with children and families being served by Midtown, and assist the Children’s Ministry Director with various tasks throughout the week. This internship would be ideal for someone with campus leadership experience, a love for children and children’s ministry, and possibly even a desire to do church ministry work in the future.
Serve with Sojourn Midtown’s Outreach Ministry for a year! Assist the Outreach Pastor and deacons with empowering congregants to do mercy, justice, and evangelism in their neighborhoods. Minister to congregants and neighbors who have benevolence needs. Help facilitate monthly outreach service projects. Aid in the coordination of Sojourn outreach events (i.e. fall festival, medical clinic, Christmas store).
