Why we have an intern program

To equip young men and women with the tools, resources, and experience they need for full-time ministry.



Why you should join

The internship is a great fit for anyone who aspires to full time vocational ministry service. Interns at the Met will see what working in ministry is really like and will gain valuable knowledge and experience. Applicants with university-level education preferred.






We appreciate the work our interns do so we want to give them the best experience possible. We expect our interns to work hard, so we work hard to give them valuable resources for ministry and life.

As a Pastor committed to expository Bible teaching and preaching, I’m delighted to hear about The Met’s internship training program and the potential it has to equip people for significant gospel impact in Canada and beyond!

A good pastoral internship program provides not only supervised quality readings and courses, but modelling: interns need to observe a healthy, functioning church, from the inside. They need to become involved in supervised ministry, with mentors to help them reflect on what they are doing. And they must learn with their whole being what an enormous privilege it is to serve King Jesus in this way -- even while they discover that their best efforts still mark them out as "unprofitable servants." I believe that the Metropolitan Bible Church is pulling together the necessary ingredients of such a program.

How I wish I’d had a program like this one when I was a young woman with ministry interests and gifts. Even now, years into informal lay ministry, I can imagine the benefit I’d receive from this kind of intentional ministry training. I’m so glad to see a program of this kind being offered to both men and women!

Josh Moody

Senior Pastor at College Church in Wheaton President, God Centered Life Ministries

God’s means of identifying, training and equipping ministers of the gospel is the local church. Over time, the local church has resourced and established excellent Bible training colleges and seminaries of various kinds to support this calling of the local church to train future gospel workers. But the mandate still falls on the local church. And there are still aspects of being a minister that cannot be learned in a classroom. Much of pastoral work is more like learning to be a surgeon than learning mathematics: you need to see how someone does it for yourself, have them watch you while you do it, and then be given the room to do it yourself where failure does not have cataclysmic consequences. For all these reasons, I am delighted to hear of the Met’s internship program. May God bless it and all who participate to the furthering of His kingdom and to His great glory.

Developing men and women for ministry has always been a priority at the Met. Over the years, God has used the Met to raise up pastors, missionaries and ministry leaders for Canada and the world. If you are looking for an internship that combines solid biblical teaching with guided ministry experience in the context of a vibrant local church, you will want to explore the Met’s Intern Program. We highly recommend it.

It is heartening to see the robust training enterprise at the Met raise up ministers of the gospel. May God bless this wonderful endeavor for many years to come!
