The Leadership Ministry Internship Program exists to discover, develop, and deploy the next generation of spiritual leaders. We help emerging leaders discover their heart and talent and actively develop those gifts for transformational leadership in the church, non-profits, and the marketplace.
Interns work 25 hours per week for 10 months, receiving practical spiritual mentorship, theological training, and equipping in spiritual leadership.
Through our relationship with Southern Seminary and Dallas Theological Seminary, interns can receive seminary course credit by participating in the seminary track of our nine-month Training Program.
