Our internship program is for young people looking to grow in faith, be equipped to serve and to explore God’s calling for their life.
An internship can be done alongside part-time work or study, and opportunities will be tailored to each individual to provide the best experience for growth and service. The program runs for one year (with an optional second year if agreed between the church and intern). Following the program, interns will be helped to further pursue their calling in or beyond the local church.
Each intern will have a mentor, a significant placement in ministry, a placement coach, debriefing with our Senior Pastor and regular participation in our staff and Ministry Team Leadership team meetings.
We want to be a church that helps young people love and follow Jesus in a rapidly changing world. We offer internships to see young people learn and grow in their faith, but also for them to have influence in the leadership of the church. We believe that kids, youth and young adults must have a voice in shaping the church of today, not just the church of tomorrow. Each generation will face challenges and ask questions that are different to the generations that went before them.
We intentionally include interns in the time of prayer, discussion and debate that give shape to the life and ministry of The Lakes Church. We hope that by doing so, we will be challenged by God to take risks and make sacrifices to help each new generation discover Jesus.
