Pastoral Intership

We have had a long history of being a greenhouse for Gospel-centered pastors, ministry workers, and missionaries as a local church. Our alumni are ministering in dozens of cities, states, and countries around the globe. 

One of the unique stewardships of being a local church near a major seminary is loving those ministry minded persons and households well. Several years ago we created our Pastoral Internship program to formalize multiple ministry tracks. There are many challenges to getting good people educated, trained, and experienced launched into new ministry contexts. We have designed a program to help navigate these realities.
