Winterfest 2018

Thanks for taking time to check out our youth group! I’m pretty biased, but this is an awesome group!  We’re looking for a couple of great interns to come work with us this summer. If you like hanging out with teens and helping them understand what it means to know God in a deeper way and follow Jesus, we just might want to talk to you!

We are still looking for a 2019 female intern. Experience and ministry intentions are a plus but not required.

-Mike Brown, Youth Minister



“From the beginning of talking to Mike about the possibility of interning at Lafayette Iimg_7333 could tell how important the internship program is to both Mike and the church as a whole. Mike is by far one of the greatest mentors I have ever encountered. This internship is not simply a “fun summer job,” you’ll have some of the most fun experiences but this internship is truly an opportunity to be mentored, stretched, and grow as a minister whether you are pursuing ministry as a career or not. The students and families at Lafayette love and welcome the interns with open arms, as if you’ve been there all along. To take a line from the hit movie, Mean Girls, they are ‘the greatest people you’ll ever meet.’”

– Erica Valerio (2018 Intern)


“Lafayette Church of Christ has been such a blessing to my life for the spiritual season that I was in this Summer.

2017 Interns

From week one I felt as if I were lovingly accepted into the family dynamic of this church. They do a very good job of not focusing solely on the youth group member as an  individual, but they respect the family system as a whole and how that plays into the teens’ upbringing. It has been an utter joy being the intern for this church because they are very supportive and kind. These kids are some of the quirkiest, most funny, loving, insightful, and devoted kids you will meet in the world. They have richly blessed my summer and I know they will do the same for yours.”
