It may still be winter, but we’re excited to start recruiting the best and brightest for our 2014 summer internship program. Logos is looking for interns in a variety of fields—whether you have a passion for coding, marketing, or communications, we have an internship for you!

As a former intern, I cannot speak highly enough of the valuable experience you’ll gain at Logos. You’ll be placed on a team of smart, motivated coworkers who are ready to collaborate, work hard, and succeed.

What it’s like to be a Logos intern

In the marketing department, you could be crafting blog posts, strategizing emails, building new websites, and running entire promotions. Our previous and current interns have praised the trust and empowerment they experience. Talk about a résumé-booster—and maybe even a future job!

“As an intern, I never felt like I was part of a program—I was treated the same as full-time employees, with the same training and responsibilities. My team made me feel trusted, competent, and capable.”

—Pam, marketing communications (now a full-time employee)

If you intern in development, you’ll work with the latest technologies and tackle projects that will benefit thousands of people every day. You’ll be writing desktop, mobile, and web applications for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android, using a variety of coding languages. Plus, you’ll have a full-time mentor giving you feedback and ideas for further growth. You’ll get real-world dev experience that you just can’t find in the classroom.

“With a dedicated full-time mentor guiding my learning, I was given ample opportunity to flex my coding muscle outside the classroom. I learned more in those first nine weeks than I had over two years at college.”

—Ryan, software development (now a full-time employee)

It gets sweeter. Not only will you be gaining awesome experience—these internships are paid!

Life at Seminary: Inspiration and Advice

Seminary_Scholarship_WinnersDallas Theological Seminary student Jason Roszhart was the recent winner of the quarterly Seminary Scholarship: $1,000 and a Logos 5 Bronze base package!

Because all Dallas Theological Seminary students receive a Logos base package upon enrollment, Jason asked if he could pass along his base package to another deserving recipient. He selected his close friend of six years, Kyle Lundquist, a student at Talbot School of Theology, the seminary of Biola University.

Jason, who currently works as a youth pastor, is pursuing his master’s in theology. Kyle is in his third semester of an MDiv; he works at his local church as a youth and young-adult pastor. We recently had the opportunity to talk with Jason and Kyle about life at seminary:

What inspired you to attend seminary?

Jason: My youth pastor was a DTS graduate, and he really showed the value of studying and understanding Scripture. Later on, Kyle and I spent four and a half months in India doing ministry work. There I met a lot of people who would love the opportunity to go to seminary.  Seeing that made me aware of what an opportune time this is in my life to learn about God’s Word in order that I might further His kingdom.  So many people in India asked us to share our testimonies, so to learn how to do that more effectively is important to me.

What do you hope to do after seminary?

Jason: I hope to be involved in international missions. Transportation and communication have been transformed by globalization, so why not use the benefits of globalization to share the gospel?

Kyle: I want to be working in church leadership for the rest of my life. To be part of a place that fosters community and relationship building. I’m currently working as a youth and young-adult pastor at my church, and it’s awesome to be working with an age group that’s so naturally inquisitive. They’re asking questions and starting to figure out the big reasons behind their faith. Being part of a community that can help answer those questions has been a huge blessing.

What’s your favorite part of seminary?

Jason: The conversations that happen after class, both with peers and with professors. You hear that lecture that stirs you up and makes you think about your faith and God in completely new ways. Then you talk about it. It’s awesome to be surrounded by godly people who also want to digest God’s Word and think biblically.

Kyle: Seminary has changed my life. Simply knowing God has changed my life, but seminary has made me in awe of Him in so many new ways.

What advice do you have to give to anyone interested in attending seminary?

Jason: Obviously, you don’t have to go to seminary to be a Christian. But there is a higher level of study and knowledge in the Bible that needs to be learned in order for it to pass down through generations. Listen to whether you’re being called to do this—to learn and communicate the intricate details and lessons the Bible gives us. Ask yourself if you feel called to church leadership.

Kyle: Be sure to get plugged into the local church. It’s easy to throw all your time and effort into your studies and the intellectual side of seminary, but everything you learn is to ultimately build Christ’s kingdom. And that happens through the relational side. Being involved in my local church makes seminary so much more real and directly applicable. I go to class and study the texts and I automatically see lessons that I want to communicate with the people I pastor.

Any final remarks?

Jason: I feel extremely blessed to be at Dallas Theological Seminary and to be able to utilize Logos resources. However, the sufficiency found in Christ and His willingness to come down to Earth to save us is infinitely better. How wonderful it is to serve a God who blesses us with all of these gifts.

Learn from 7 Great American Preachers

Right now, you can bid on sermon collections from some of American history’s most notable preachers. Without Logos, integrating these collections into your Bible study would be a challenge—they cover so much! With Logos, though, you can search by topic, jump to Scripture references, and access sermons from any of your devices. Revel in Beecher’s famous biography of Jesus, study the works of Rev. John Witherspoon, and be inspired by R. A. Torrey.

Here are seven collections you should bid on before it’s too late:

henry-ward-beecher-collection

1. Henry Ward Beecher Collection

Regularly $239.95—current bid is only $50

Henry Ward Beecher was, in Spurgeon’s words, “the Shakespeare of the Christian pulpit”; in Lincoln’s, “the most influential man in America.” Famed as his time’s most powerful American public speaker, and noted for his uncompromising moral stances, Beecher achieved social reform, led a dedicated, Christ-serving congregation, and brokered international peace—all from behind the pulpit.

2. The Complete Works of Thomas Smyth

Regularly $149.95—current bid is only $20

Thomas Smyth, born in Ireland, was nevertheless a key character in America’s nineteenth-century formation of Presbyterian doctrine and practice. He rose to prominence in the years preceding the Civil War; his Unity of the Human Race, which defended slaves’ full humanity, earned him the ire of southern slave owners. This 10-volume collection gives you Smyth’s many sermons, lectures, treatises, church guidelines, reviews, discourses, and articles.
the-works-of-the-rev-john-witherspoon

3. The Works of the Rev. John Witherspoon

Regularly $79.95—current bid is only $21

John Knox Witherspoon was a Presbyterian minister, a president of what is now Princeton University, and a signer of the US Declaration of Independence. As a politician, he was a staunch nationalist and republican; as a minister, he was an evangelical opponent of the Moderate Party of the Church of Scotland. This collection includes essays, observations, letters, speeches, and 47 sermons by this great thinker and preacher.

4. Selected Works of R. A. Torrey

Regularly $39.95—current bid is only $8

Reuben Archer Torrey captivated massive crowds with his passionate yet sensible appeals to Scripture, and wrote classics in theology, apologetics, Bible exposition, Christian living, and other fields. Torrey, possessed of almost encyclopedic biblical knowledge, used this knowledge to help readers apply Scripture in practical ways. These four volumes are lesser-known titles—additional pieces of wisdom and insight for studying not only the Bible, but also the practicalities of Christian life and ministry.

Free Book: The Works of Richard Sibbes, vol. 1

the-works-of-richard-sibbes-vol-1All November long, you can get volume 1 of The Works of Richard Sibbes for free!

“The winter prepares the earth for the spring, so do afflictions sanctified prepare the soul for glory.”
—Richard Sibbes

When was the last time you went through trials? How did they affect your relationship with Christ—were you encouraged in your faith, or did you feel abandoned? In The Bruised Reed, Richard Sibbes, the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English theologian, takes on these questions and more. Sibbes uses the metaphor of bruising to describe how God enlightens us: hardships, we learn, come about as a way to drive us to God. Only when our pride is humbled are we able to grasp the sacrifices Christ made for us.

“I shall never cease to be grateful to Richard Sibbes, who was balm to my soul at a period in my life when I was overworked and badly overtired, and therefore subject in an unusual manner to the onslaughts of the devil. I found at that time that Richard Sibbes . . . was an unfailing remedy. His books, The Bruised Reed and The Soul’s Conflict, quieted, soothed, comforted, encouraged, and healed me.”
—Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Volume 1 of The Works of Richard Sibbes gives you not only The Bruised Reed, but also a preface by the editor and a detailed biography.
