Tailrace Community will again be offering you the chance to grow with the Ministry Internship Program in 2018.
Our Ministry Internship Program has been designed with maximum flexibility so that no matter whether you are working a normal work week, are a full time student or are taking a gap year, you’ll be able to fit in the Ministry Internship Program.
The Ministry Internship Program will not only accelerate your spiritual growth but help equip you as a ministry leader and to potentially take next steps towards ministry leadership.
How Will The Ministry Internship Program Benefit Me?
The Internship Program will help you grow in many ways, as well as being an important step in equipping you for ministry. Here’s what the interns form 2017 had to say about it:
I loved doing the internship for many reasons, but the standouts would be the growth within myself personally, and growth in my walk with God. Holly
The internship allowed me to grow in leadership, my relationship with Jesus, and understanding my purpose in life. Mathew
The internship challenged me to grow and be accountable in almost every area of my life including living out my faith as we are biblically called to do. Kelsea
The internship gave me a new sense of direction and purpose. Strengthened my faith and gave me the ability to hear and answer gods call for my life. Sarah
The Internship helped me to create a really solid foundation in my faith and in life, I also for the first time in my life have a true Purpose [calling] for my life and the Internship helped me to learn how God has wired me so I can live my truest form as a child of God. Jeffery
How Does The Ministry Internship Program Work
There are a number of components to the program that over the year include participating in 8 Saturday morning Group Mentoring Workshops, being involved in gaining experience volunteering in a ministry team, having monthly coaching sessions with your ministry team leader, studying 2 or more bible college subjects, reading 4 books and listening to weekly podcasts that are prescribed for you. All this will take an estimated 14 hours per week on average.
In addition to the above, we will be seeking your commitment to our ministry Code of Conduct, as well as a commitment to implementing our 5 core values of Growth, Gifts, Generosity, Gatherings and Grace.
Upon successful completion of the Ministry Internship Program, you will be presented with a Completion Certificate.
