We hire college students as interns for 12-weeks and deploy them by utilizing their talents in a ministry or on a project. Interns report to department or ministry leaders for their work. The Director of Leadership Development plays the role of advisor to interns, with the goal of helping them determine how God might be calling them into a career.

Pastoral Resident Program
We hire pastoral residents with the goal of training and developing them so they’re hireable or highly desirable after two years.
Residents report to a pastor who meets with them at least twice per month to create the resident’s ministry development plan and to hold them accountable for the work they’re producing. A ministry development plan will include experiential learning opportunities (i.e. weddings, funerals, team leadership, etc.) as well as educational experiences as needed (i.e. courses in theology, preaching, church leadership, etc.).
The Director of Leadership Development serves as each resident’s advisor/coach, meeting with them at least weekly to develop their soft skills for ministry (i.e. leadership, conflict resolution, time management, self-care, etc.).
