If so, we’d love to hear from you!

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

Ministry Internship: A 10-11 month position primarily for gaining ministry experience and exposure under the supervision of a ministry head, focused on leadership training, discipleship, professional development, and being a part of a community of interns. This is a minimum 15-20 hour a week position, non-paid. Preferably starting in August with the 2-day Global Leadership Summit and ending in June.

Send your responses to the ministry you are most interested in serving.  After reviewing your responses, they will contact you regarding their present needs, and possible next steps.

WHAT IT IS:
