FAQs about the Music Ministry Internship

Do I have to be a Baptist to apply?

No. Nor do you have to be Christian. However, since you will be leading in our Christian worship services, that will be the tone and topic of the music that you will find yourself singing, as well as the perspective of what you will be experiencing throughout the service.  If you would feel comfortable participating, then we would welcome you wholeheartedly (and no, we will not be pressuring you to conform to our beliefs).

Do I have to provide my own transportation?

Ideally, yes.

What made you decide to offer this opportunity? 

Great question!  There are many reasons that factored into this decision:

  1. Our congregation has a long history of loving music and the arts, and we have a deep list of accomplished musicians who have been an integral part of the DNA of this congregation over its 186-year history.
  2. One of our deeply-held beliefs as Baptists is that each person has gifts that they can contribute to the community at large, and this is a unique way to extend an opportunity to young adult singers to do just that.
  3. We believe that God is calling us here at First Baptist Church to be more present in our community, including young adults, and this is a new way to merge all of these different pieces of our story.
  4. Our choir would also greatly benefit from adding 4 strong, young voices, and we also want to provide a little money to students who find themselves in Lafayette for school.

How is your church responding to the current COVID-19 pandemic?

As of August 2021, in addition to requiring all worshipers to wear masks, we continue to socially distance ourselves in the sanctuary,  and we continue to follow many other CDC-recommended guidelines for faith communities.  In 2020, we created a church covenant to guide us as we make decisions during the pandemic to remind one another that we depend on each other’s choices to stay healthy.
