An internship program will bring new, young, innovative ideas into your church’s culture. In return, the church can offer the intern experience and skill development, and most importantly, exposure to the Gospel message that will prove to be the most valuable life changing experience ever. Churches are always looking for help. Sunday comes every week, without fail. There are always problems to be resolved, especially when it comes to church production. Often the church tries to hire their way out of the problem and may think, “If we had money, adding staff would fix our issues.” But, what about interns? Is it possible that an internship program could be a form of outreach to high schools and colleges. The answer is yes. Come and find out the how-tos and watch your tech teams and ministry opportunities multiply.
