Supervision and work relations:    The summer children’s ministry intern will be directly supervised by the lead pastor, will work in regular cooperation with the church ministry coordinator, and will maintain regular communications with the discipleship committee. They may also be requested to provide updates to the board of deacons.

Direct supervision through the lead pastor will include regular meetings, both weekly scheduled and as needed to review work schedule, plans and development of work projects. The lead pastor may, at his discretion, delegate some of this oversight to the associate pastor, ministry coordinator or members of the discipleship committee, although would remain responsible to ensure that the supervision is provided.


Mentoring Plan:

The student will be requested to provide a detailed description of their summer work goals as they relate to their field of education and education career. These goals will be reviewed by the lead pastor, and in cooperation with the student, may be refined as needed to make the most of their employment opportunity.
In consideration for both student personal goals and the demands of the position, the supervisor and the student will also establish, within the first week of employment, the specific work skills that will be targeted for development over the course of the employment window.
Once established as priority, the supervisor will ensure that opportunities are present within the work environment to call on such skills, and regular updates by the student employee will identify the extent to which the opportunities were helpful in doing so.
The supervisor will meet weekly with the student to reflect on their experience and develop a broader understanding of Christian ministry work within the context of church and community.

Health and Safety:  All employees of WBC are accountable to the health and safety standards as defined by Ontario labour law and to follow any guidelines, standards as defined by the church in workplace policies that may be adopted.
