- Receiving training and instruction through up-close mentoring, workshops, conferences, and events.
- Observing leaders by serving alongside staff.
- Gaining practical experience through ministry and mission.
- Making lifelong friends through working alongside other interns.

When is a good time to start an Internship?
If you want to serve God and his people, and feel like a life in ministry may be for you, then now is the right time.
What kind of experience do I need to become an Intern?
If you are in high school, we require you to be in Grade 11 or above. If you are in college or university, you must be in your first year or above.
We would encourage you to choose the focus that you are in school for, such as instrumental or vocal music, children's ministries, local or global missions, or pastoral training.
What does a typical day as an Intern look like?
That depends on what focus you have chosen and your skills in that field. We want to ensure that you are challenged so that you can grow in your faith and in the talents that God has given you.
