Internship

PROGRAM

Purpose

 

The Be The Message Internship program is designed to provide the experience, education and exposure needed to build a foundation for your gift and calling. Our goal is for you to experience growth and maturity during the process. We want you to see this as a privilege and not a job requirement.

 

Programs

 

Serve Internship - Serve Internship is a 12-month program committed to serving the local church. The Intern will participate in serving and learning the area of ministry he or she is currently in or desire to be a part of.

 

Coach Internship - Coach Internship is a 24-month program committed to learning how to coach others effectively. We believe in learning by doing. Therefore, we also give the individual an opportunity to exercise the gift by coaching others in areas of small groups or ministries.

 

Pastoral Internship - Pastoral Internship is a 36-month program committed to preaching and teaching the Word of God in any platform. Our leaders are focused in assessing and guiding the Pastors so that the individual can be well equipped in delivering sermons, teaching bible studies, and shepherding the congregation.
