Development Internships: EGC is currently seeking interns for our development team, supporting the development team in a variety of ways, including assisting with donor and church relations, marketing, communications, grantwriting, and events.

This is also a great opportunity to learn more about EGC, our programs, and our approach to doing urban ministry. You’ll also gain a broad overview of the system of churches and church-based ministries in Greater Boston, and gain exposure to EGC’s networks. Learn more here.

Intercultural Ministries Volunteer/Intern, with a focus on expanding the New England Book of Acts and developing its website: In preparation for the Intercultural Leadership Consultation in October of 2007, EGC collaborated with various groups within the church to gather stories, articles, and resources from numerous people groups and ministries that help tell the story of what God is doing in New England. These stories and resources were compiled in a publication called the New England’s Book of Acts (NEBA), which is also available at www.newenglandsbookofacts.org. As not all ethnic groups have been captured and others are in need of updating, we are looking for an intern/volunteer to assist in expanding and updating the NEBA, and to help develop a more interactive version of the publication on our website at www.egc.org/peoplegroups. This position would include some research and fieldwork, but mostly involves administrative tasks. Computer skills are required and experience in Drupal is an asset. Moreover, good telephone and communication skills are needed. The job is an unpaid position and can have flexible working hours. An availability of four hours per week is the minimum; eight hours or more is preferred. Learn more here.
