Internship Program

Internship is a training and proving ground for emerging leaders. During your Internship, you will accumulate valuable experience, mentors, and knowledge that will prepare you for stepping into the next phase of your God-given calling. Our desire is that your internship gives you the experience and training you need to take your next steps in living a life that matches your unique gifts with God’s specific purpose for your life.
