Bykota Church is seeking an intern to oversee our youth ministry for grades 7-12. Bykota (Be Ye Kind One To Another) Church is a well-established church in Carthage, MO, consisting of many young families within the Bykota Family. Our roots are Southern Baptist but in 1988 we became a non-denominational church and since 1999 we have been an active part of Church of The Nations (COTN). The church’s government is elder led and we encourage all the church to be a part of our ‘churches in the house’. We believe secular work is just as spiritual and important as those working in full-time ministry and it’s our desire that each person bring and advance the Kingdom of God in their daily lives.
