Discipleship Extern: Adullam Church

POSITION/JOB TITLE : Discipleship Extern HOURS : Part-time (less than 20 hrs.)
WAGE TYPE : Non-paid internship
EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS/PREFERENCE : Bachelors

JOB DESCRIPTION : We believe that one of the most magnificent pictures of what the church is supposed to be is embodied in the original Twelve disciples of Jesus.

They lived together for an intentional and intensive period of Kingdom lifestyle training. They grew together, were discipled together, were on mission together, sought the poor and needy together, challenged one another, shared meals with one another, and were ultimately sent by Jesus as a team to make more teams and communities of disciples…together. How beautiful is that?!

We are Adullam Church, and we are seeking disciples who desire to join a team that is committed to and passionate about knowing Jesus together, growing together, and going to plant churches and make disciples together all over Greater Seattle. You are someone who is hungry to live the mission and the lifestyle of Jesus and to do it with others who are in the trenches with you. You are excited at the thought of getting to be part of the beginnings of a church. You’re not the only insane one!

Adullam Church is a church plant in the Bothell/Mill Creek area.

We are seeking a discipleship extern who is passionate about growing as a disciple and learning the art of disciple-making. You will join a team of disciple-makers who are being trained to lead others into spiritual maturity, build community, and plant churches from the ground up.

JOB REQUIREMENTS : Collegiate/Post-Grad Students who love Jesus and are highly coachable

You are a teachable disciple. We are not as much interested in your skills or expertise that would normally be more useful to a Sunday service-oriented church. We are far more interested in your character than your competencies; more excited about your humility than your knowledge; more impressed with your followship capacity than your leadership capabilities.
