“Being able to serve in a ministry filled with dreamers and individuals who ask for nothing but more of Jesus has challenged, wrecked and strengthened me in beautiful ways… Interning at Fellowship was my space for healing and growth: it’s like living a dream I never wanted to wake up from.” Arielle Wilburn
At Fellowship Monrovia, our interns are crucial to what we do. The internship opportunity offers hands-on experiences in roles ranging from worship production and social media to college ministry and community development, and everything in between! We seek to guide and empower our interns to do the work of the church, focusing on leadership development, team training, and ministry practice. Our program sits at the intersection of inowledge and experience, giving our interns the opportunity to be involved in the behind-the-scenes work of bringing Jesus to the world. We love our interns!
