Internships and Residencies

internships-01

Internships at Sojourn develop emerging leaders for the church and the world through mentoring, training, and practical ministry. Our vision is to equip the next generation to love, serve, and lead within the local church.

 

We are looking for interns who:

  • Desire to see the mission of Sojourn Church advance as interns partner together with Sojourn ministry leaders.
  • Are ready to be further equipped and trained for ministry through holistic (head, heart, hands) training and growth.
  • Are future leaders trying to discern a call to ministry within the local church.

This is accomplished through an environment that:

  • Cultivates a community of grace where interns can grow and learn.
  • Forms interns with a greater passion for the local church in love, service and leadership.
  • Invites a variety of people, ages, gifts and abilities to play their part in the body of Christ.
  • Hopes to mold future ministry leaders, church planters and pastors.
