ROOTED

CITY CHURCH INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

We are passionate about raising up the next generation of leaders.

 

We believe that the world needs strong leaders with an understanding of who God is and who they are as sons and daughters of the Living God.

 

ROOTED is an intense 8-month course of study that will help young believers grow in character, leadership, and clarity in their calling, so they can help grow the kingdom of God using their gifts, talents, and abilities.

 

Please read the following schedule, syllabus, and requirements carefully. This is a rigorous program that requires a certain level of commitment. If you are willing to make that commitment, please click the “APPLY NOW” button at the bottom of this page to apply. 

Applications are due Friday, August 16, 2019. 

 

All First Semester Dues need to be in by September 1st.

 

Schedule of Events:

 

Semester 1:  September 15 - December 15th

Sundays 5pm-8pm

 

Semester 2:  January 26 - May 10th

Sundays at 5pm-8pm

 

Missions Trip:  Year 1 students will be taking a short-term mission trip to NYC (included in tuition), and will have opportunities to join additional trips.

 

Syllabus:

 

The internship is separated into three courses of study:

  1. Theology

  2. Leadership

  3. Ministry

 

We believe that ministry leaders must be grounded in each of these areas to be most effective in their pursuits.

 

Students in the internship will be expected to participate in required reading, submit homework assignments, serve in various church ministries, and get involved in missions work.

 

Year 1 Requirements & Expectations:

 

In addition to studies and service, City Church interns are required to:

  • Pay a $250 fee per semester to cover books, materials, and missions trip to NYC.

  • Attend each internship class. Only 2 absences will be permitted per semester (4 total over the course of the internship). More than 2 absences per semester will result in dismissal from the program without refund.

  • Give or tithe consistently. We believe that God’s kingdom is built through generosity and faithfulness, and we expect our interns to uphold this standard.

  • Consistent church attendance and serving. We feel church attendance is foundational to the growth of believer, and interns will serve throughout various departments each semester.

 

This internship is NOT a place for counseling, one-on-one support and mentoring, or Bible study (although we WILL be studying the Bible!). This program is intended for those who are seriously considering a career or leadership level involvement in ministry.

Applications are closed for 2019-2020 internship.

TESTIMONIES 

 

Josh Howard

"The City Church internship has been such a blessing for me and my wife over the last year.

As a new Christian, there was a lot I didn't know, and the internship gave me the opportunity to ask questions and dive deeper into who God is and how to walk a righteous path.

I've learned so much as a result of this internship and I'm really grateful to Mike and all of the teachers who came in to work with us for taking the time to pour into our lives and help us grow stronger in our faith.

This really is an incredible program for anyone who feels a calling to ministry or wants to get more involved in the church. You learn not just about God and ministry, but also about leadership and service, which are two core components of the work we do in the church.

I highly recommend anyone interested sign up!

“When I started the City Church internship, I didn’t really know what to expect. I just felt like God was calling me to pursue Him more and to step up in service of the City Church community.

 

Over the course of the internship, I grew much deeper in my relationship with God and my understanding of who He is. I started to experience things that I never had before - God was literally creating a new song in me during a difficult transition in my life, and I directly attribute that to the experience I had in the internship. I grew more fervent in my prayer life - something I had never had much passion about before.

 

While it’s a worthwhile program to get involved with (sign up!!!!), it’s definitely a commitment. There were days Josh & I didn’t want to show up because we were tired and wanted a night off, but those were always the most fruitful discussions. We served in ministries that weren’t our gifting, but we learned that it is a privilege to serve and that serving isn’t about US and our gifts; it’s a response to who God is and what He’s done for us.

 

I highly recommend this opportunity for those who are looking to pursue God in a structured way and who are looking to grow in their leadership skills and within the ministries of City Church.”
