Flagstaff, Arizona Ministry Seeks Campus Intern Featured

Thursday, 08 May 2014 17:36
Flagstaff NAU SkydomeThe Flagstaff Ministry of the Phoenix Church of Christ seeks a male campus intern beginning this summer. Recent college graduates or current students willing to transfer are encouraged to apply. Flagstaff is home to Northern Arizona University, with a campus and nearby student population of almost 20,000. It is a true college town, having been rated as one of the best in America, situated at 7,000 feet near the base of the beautiful San Francisco Peaks, a short drive from the Grand Canyon and two hours north of Phoenix.

Ken and Debbie Burford moved from Phoenix to Flagstaff the first of this year to lead the ministry. The handful of disciples in Flagstaff have responded with great faith. Weekly worship and a Thursday evening campus Bible Talk have been held during the Spring semester in a small church facility just two blocks north of the campus in down town Flagstaff. Without any college students in the ministry to begin the semester, campus visitors have been to every Bible Talk and to every Sunday service. Students are studying the Bible, and several disciples from Phoenix and Southern California are planning to attend NAU and the local community college next Fall. The new intern will join Ariel Lee who will be coming from the Miami, Florida church in July to serve as women's campus intern for the new school year.

The Flagstaff ministry affords the opportunity for much one on one and small group interaction with peers and ministry leaders. Ken is a lawyer now devoting the majority of his time to leading the ministry. He holds a Bible degree from Abilene Christian University and prior to attending law school served for eleven years in full time campus ministry for the Church of Christ in Tempe at Arizona State University. Ken and Debbie have served the Phoenix church as campus ministry shepherds, family group leaders, and sub-region leaders.

The NAU campus interns will participate each semester and summer in weekly in depth Bible teaching time and training sessions in practical ministry instruction, including evangelism, following up with new disciples, leadership, personal spiritual growth, and counseling and will be included in leadership participation in weekly devos and Bible talks, and involvement in planning Sunday worship, retreats, and other special events. In addition, each intern will have one or more opportunities per month to spend time in Phoenix with ministry leaders in a larger ministry context.

If you sense God calling you to greater faith, adventure, and ministry experience, we invite you to contact Ken Burford (480-643-9785; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Steve Hiddleson (602-696-9051).
