Intern, Facilities

An internship at Ridgecrest Conference Center offers an experience to grow professionally, spiritually and personally as you receive on-the-job training and learn skills needed to serve in a fast-paced Christian hospitality environment.

The intern program includes weekly bible study and fellowship with other team members. You will be provided unique opportunities for your growth and development through enrichment and service. Team managers and supervisors will coordinate your work schedule, daily responsibilities, and special project assignments.

An internship with the Facilities Team takes you behind-the-scenes to gain an understanding of what it takes to maintain a large-scale conference center. You will have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from highly skilled team members in our Carpentry, Plumbing, HVAC, Grounds, Maintenance, Fleet, Safety, and Recreation departments. You will gain hands-on experience in caring for the buildings, grounds, and resources of our 1,200 acre campus. In addition to learning skills in these different areas, you will also have the opportunity to directly serve guests by leading groups through Laser Tag, facilitating our Adventure Recreation Course and staffing our Rec Shack as group needs arise. This internship requires a willingness to learn, a heart to serve and a healthy appetite for hard work.
