Internship Program

Every summer, our church will be focusing on leadership development in a unique and practical way. Consider engaging in an internship with us in 2019. We will devote 9-12 weeks of ministry training in a suburban setting for anyone 18 years or older (not graduated from college yet). Internships are unpaid. "Leaders in Development" (LIDS) can potentially experience any of the following (but not limited to the follow): 

>> Consider obtaining a part-time job in the community we are reaching
>> Learn what discipleship is and how to engage people in discipleship
>> Preaching a sermon
>> Teaching scripture in a small group environment
>> Small group leadership
>> Sunday morning ministry serving/leading
>> Practical teaching from pastors/leaders around the region
>> Participate in fun and practical ministry projects
>> Learn how to plant a church
>> Plan a missions trip
>> Local outreach planning and execution
>> Develop financial knowledge of a growing ministry

An interns experience will be shaped by two things.

FIRST, the season the church is in. For example, interns will experience ministry in a brand new church differently than they would if they were interning in a well established church. Every year God brings new and different ministry opportunities to the church. With respect to 2019, this internship falls within the early post-launch phase of our church. Because of that, the student will experience unique ministry consistent with a church in the early post-launch phase. With that said, we should have an intentional plan for interns, but we and the interns also need to be flexible when facing unexpected turns.

SECOND, the season the intern is in. An interns experience will vary based on where he/she is in their walk with Christ, and how open their hearts are to whatever comes their way. There is very little routine in ministry and days and weeks often look different. Some days might be busier than others, and some weeks might be busier than others.
