The Fellowship Internship Program exists to encourage, equip, and expose the next generation of disciple-makers.
We believe our calling is “to nurture and prepare the holy believers to do their own works of ministry, and as they do this they will enlarge and build up the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:14 TPT).
Our internships offer hands-on experiences in roles ranging from Fellowship Kids to Graphic Design to Racial Reconciliation, and everything in between! We seek to guide and empower our interns to participate the work of the church, focusing on leadership development, team training, and ministry practice. This program gives young leaders the opportunity to be involved in the work of Gospel-centered, multi-ethnic, intergenerational ministry.

“My internship at Fellowship can be summed up into one word: the story of empowerment. I was not looked down on for being too young. Instead, I was encouraged and walked alongside, prayed over and anointed, and drawn into a sense of community where I’ve experienced more and more of the Lord.”

Who should apply for a Fellowship internship?
This program is designed specifically for young adults, many of whom are currently enrolled or recently graduated from their undergraduate studies. Because our program helps young adults gain skill training in a ministry setting, many of our applicants are seeking experience for their pursuit of vocational ministry; however, you need not be called to full-time church ministry to apply. You must be 18 years or older to intern at Fellowship.
What are the minimum requirements to intern at Fellowship?
The best applicants are college-age young adults (roughly 18-26 years old), available to work 10-15 hours per week, willing to commit to attending Fellowship for the duration of their internship, committed to Fellowship’s mission and values, and available for the full season of their internship.

Dates vary year by year, but in general, the School Year Season is September 1 to May 1 and the summer internship season is May 1 to September 1.
What are the dates for the next internship season?
The next available internship season begins May 1, 2019 and ends on September 1, 2019.

What is the time commitment for an internship at Fellowship?

Furthermore, interns will participate on the greater Fellowship staff during large events.
Who will supervise me?
Interns are supervised by the Internship Program Leadership and the direct supervisor over the ministry team of which they are a part (i.e., the Graphic Design interns are supervised by the staff Art Director).
