Internships

Good Faith Media’s Ernest C. Hynds Jr. internship program was launched in September 2020.

A gift by the foundation of First Baptist Church of Athens, Georgia, established the GFM internship program to honor the memory of Ernest C. Hynds Jr. (1930-2015), a longtime church leader and professor emeritus of journalism at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication where he worked for 43 years, including a decade as head of the journalism department.

Interns work with GFM staff on a variety of projects and initiatives, which are discussed and planned based on organizational needs, as well as the intern’s interests and/or degree program requirements.

GFM internships offer a well-rounded program to engage in activities that connect with interns’ interests and abilities, while also offering new experiences and forming new skill sets. Opportunities can include research and writing news and opinion for both print and digital publication, engaging in social media campaigns, and producing podcast episodes and/or short video productions.

In addition to gaining media skills like writing opinion, editing podcasts, digital marketing and the magazine publishing process, this internship gave me opportunities to learn about myself. Through this thoughtful and diligent work, I’ve learned how much I value education, justice and hope in my Christian circles, whether that is my church or my news sites. What sets Good Faith Media apart from other news sources is that in addition to its dedication to express truthful news and thoughtful educational content, it offers a message of faithful justice and joyful hope to a world that desperately needs both.”

Working alongside a team of expert editors, writers, marketers and producers, GFM Internships provides a platform for young adults to network, be published and contribute to a larger faith conversation where there is always more to tell.”

GFM offers fall, spring and summer internships to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as those who have recently completed degree programs.

GFM uses a virtual office approach, with staff members in multiple states across the U.S., so interns work remotely from wherever they live, engaging with staff members via phone, email and video conferencing. Limited travel may be involved in some situations.

A stipend is provided. Any work-related expenses are paid by GFM.
