Perks of Participating in Our Church Internship Program

There’s so much to love about our Internship Program. We work hard to ensure your time with us is well spent and provide opportunities for personal development, leadership development, connecting with high-achieving ministry leaders, hands-on learning, one-on-one mentorship, and community and lifelong friendships.

Personal Development

Discover your design and how to apply the gifts God has given you. All Journey Interns have the opportunity to go through Growth Track — a five-step process that helps you know God, make a difference, and follow Jesus.

Leadership Development

Interns will have countless opportunities to participate in both large- and small-group leadership training. Past topics have included developing humility, unity, conflict resolution, and interpersonal skills; how to mentor and disciple others; how to create a budget for ministry (and life!); creating an ideal week and practicing healthy rhythms; how to lead volunteer and team meetings; and more.

Meet High-Achieving Ministry Leaders

Hands-On Learning

We believe one of the best ways to learn is by doing. As a Journey Intern, you will have plenty of opportunities to shadow and dialogue with ministry leaders, plus dive into the work of ministry. We focus on a practical (not theoretical) approach to learning and want you to be a part of projects that matter. From making Sunday services run to being the team liaison on a mission trip, you will have the chance to not only serve, but lead.

One-on-One Mentorship

Community and Lifelong Friendships

Your spiritual community is a critical part of a successful career, regardless of where you go in life, and a foundational element of a healthy walk with Jesus. Interns at Journey aren’t just colleagues; they’re friends, too. From attending regular Journey College & Young Adults gatherings to going to concerts and on road trips together, nearly all our past interns have developed lifelong friendships from our Intern Program.
