College Internship Program

The College Internship is a way to explore, experience, and educate young men and women on ministry to this church and the world. Interns will have the opportunity to see the rhythms of a church and to build a solid foundation of faith in Christ. The entire process- from observation to praxis- will allow participants to engage in ministry opportunities and refine one’s calling in the world. For more information about the internship program, please email Rev. Lindsey Runyan at [email protected]
