These opportunities are classified as “internships” by the churches/agencies that post them. They represent a select list by churches and ministry agencies who seek to work with Bethel students. Most can be found on Bethel’s Online Career Center.

Note to students: To use any of these opportunities to satisfy your degree program’s internship, you must seek approval of the Director of Internship through the normal Internship Preparation process, and work with the church/agency to meet Bethel’s internship requirements.

Churches may explore entry on this list by contacting the Office of Internship and Placement at

ESTHER Homes Inc.

741 Aurora Ave., St. Paul, MN  55104
Internship Position, Part-time, Egalitarian

ESTHER Homes exists to come alongside pregnant women and single mothers experiencing homelessness or crisis by providing transitional housing and access to resources within a community of support. Families have their own room in a shared home for up to two years with access to live-in staff support while they acquire job training, further education, save money, grow as mothers, and work towards long-term housing. We believe relationships are the key to family stability and multi-generational impact.

ESTHER Homes was established in 2015 and operates housing programs in St. Paul and Eden Prairie. Full-time staff live and office out of each location, providing direct support to families and carrying out other responsibilities such as: direct social services, prenatal care coordination, program development and administration, community development, grant writing, and social media and fundraising.

We are a small, dynamic team with education in social work, nursing and midwifery, urban planning, and intercultural studies. We push each other to show up and be present rather than perfect.

We’re looking to create an intern team with broad skill sets, backgrounds, and perspectives. Ambitious self-starting undergraduates and graduate students with creativity, adaptability, and a learner mindset should apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to
