Pastor of Discipleship
Providence is passionate about Jesus Christ, the gospel and His church. Not only the existing church but also the future church. As a result, we believe Providence has a major role to play in raising up and training the next generation of healthy Christian men and women who will make an eternal impact in their generation and future generations. Pastors, Ministry Leaders, Church Planters and Missionaries not only need to be grounded with a foundation in spiritual disciplines and theology but also need to be exposed to the realities of ministry and missions within the context of a body of believers. In light of this, and by God’s grace, we believe Providence Church is uniquely gifted to equip and train individuals pursuing a lifetime of vocational Christian ministry.
Qualified applicants will be gifted and motivated men and women who either sense a call to ministry or are evaluating a potential call to ministry. They will be college age or older with some ministry experience and character recommendations from the church in which they are currently attending or previously attended.
There are two options for ministry interns:
Within both options, the ministry intern will be assigned a ministry coach within the ministry area of their choosing. Areas include:
Each Intern will also participant in a weekly seminar with other interns focused on understanding and developing leadership skills and various facets of ministry and operations within a church.
Each Intern is expected to commit either their allotted time training and serving within the ministries each week. This would include the weekly leadership seminar and ministry team and staff meetings.
Each Intern will report to their respective ministry level coach.
3 month Interns will be provided housing and a monthly stipend for living expenses.
Interns begin in both May (full-time 3 month interns) and August (part-time 9 month interns) of each year. All applications must be submitted by February 1 each year. Intern acceptance will be based on applications, interviews, recommendations, limits of the program and desired ministry.
In addition to ministry training, coaching and discipleship, Providence will invest in books, conferences, supplies, and exposure to national and international mission trips.
