Discover Purpose | Develop Leadership

The Community Internship exists to develop leaders as they discover their God-given purpose through discipleship, community, and practical ministry training. Our goal is to help our interns be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did.
Discipleship: Sharpen your gifts and talents and push past your comfort zone through one-on-one development with your assigned mentor. Community Interns will receive hands on, one-on-one training with Community of Faith’s pastors & leaders while being involved in the operations of the church.

Community: Be immersed in a team that loves one another, chooses one another, and pushes one another to look like all that Jesus has made them to be. Interns will be surrounded by people who are committed to their development into the next generation of Christian leaders.

Ministry Training:  During your internship, you will be working closely with mentors within our departments, learning to become like them and do what they do. Each week, you will be a part of classes that develop you as a leader and push you into your purpose.

“The Community Internship completely changed my life. Starting the internship I was very shy, insecure, and I didn't want to come out of my safe little bubble that I was comfortable with. Once I was in the environment of the internship I felt all of those insecurities and the "brokenness" in my life begin to fall off. I felt so much love and acceptance from everyone, including those in the community. Now after the internship I have a better sense of myself, I have a better and closer relationship with God, and I have gained a stronger support system in my life. "

“This past summer I did the internship, and it was one of the best choices I’ve made. I remember walking in not knowing who I truly was in Christ, and through the time spent with the staff and the studying of God’s word, I was able to find that. They imparted me with so much wisdom, and it’s played such a vast role in my walk. Having this experience has continued to draw me closer to Jesus each day.”

“The internship pushed me way out of my comfort zone. I’m now doing things I never would have. I never thought that I would be leading and teaching people.”

“The internship has changed my life in so many ways. It has helped me to have the good Christian foundation that I always yearned for but never seemed to have. It has helped me see who I am as a person and why I am the way I am. Lastly, it has given me a family to hold me accountable and be excited for me in my life. I’m so blessed to not only have my actual family but to have my church family supporting me and loving me in everything I do in life.”
