Youth, Adult/Young Adult, Worship, or Children’s Ministry Intern


Have you ever wondered whether God can use you? Have you wondered if your passions and gifts could be used in the life and work of the church? Are you wanting to discern whether the work of a pastor or ministry leader is part of your life’s calling? Do you want to deepen your relationship with Christ in the context of a thriving church ministry team?

Through practical service, personal mentoring, intentional equipping, and participation in a lively team environment, NLCC’s paid Ministry Internship is designed to equip an emerging leader to discern whether full-time vocational ministry is part of his or her personal calling, and to develop his or her unique gifts and abilities for that calling, through immersive ministry experiences and intentional instruction and mentoring.
