Brandon Barker has a great set of posts on interns here, here, and here. Here's a clip:
Actually, they’re better known as INTERNS, but we started calling them Jesus Elves after a hectic summer of ministry. “It’s like you’re Santa and we’re your elves” one of them said. Over the past sixteen years of ministry, I have had the privilege to work with over twenty interns, most of whom are still engaged in some form of ministry through a church or para-church organization. Working with interns has kept me young, kept our ministry vibrant, and created a multiplication process that allows our ministry to be bigger than the walls that contain it. Though you may not think that an internship program is the right fit for your ministry, you’ll discover the importance of interns, how to choose the right one and how to effectively use those Jesus Elves.
