Internships

We believe that God created each and every person on purpose and for a purpose. The church exists to help people discover God’s purpose for their lives and then determine the best path forward. For those heading into vocational ministry, we believe that one of the best paths forward is a year of investment and development as a Newsong Intern.

When the twelve disciples began to follow Jesus, they were not presented with rows of desks and chairs. He simply said, “follow me.”

They learned through experience. They asked questions along the way. They were challenged to go far beyond what they thought they could handle.

They were forever changed.
Newsong Interns spend a life changing year doing the same.
