internships

The Fellowship Internship Program exists to encourage, equip, and expose the next generation of disciple-makers.

In other words, we believe in the next generation of Christian leaders. And we want to create as many opportunities as possible for young saints in the Fellowship family to be “equipped for the works of ministry” (Ephesians 4:12).

Fellowship Interns are encouraged, equipped, and exposed to the work of local Church ministry through hands-on experience for the purpose of sustaining a lifetime of Kingdom impact.
