Frequently Asked Questions

I haven’t gone to Bible college or seminary. Do I qualify for the internship?

"While Bible college or seminary is a helpful asset to have, it is not necessary to qualify for the internship.  Interning before attending Bible college or seminary can actually help clarify direction for future education, vocation and ministry. If you are willing to grow theologically and develop as a leader within ministry the internship is a good fit."

Why did you apply for the internship?
