FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the purpose of the internship?
This internship with Bridge Community Church will provide you with the opportunity to experience firsthand what it is like to do ministry in a post-Christian and diverse urban context. By fully immersing yourself into this context, you will learn some of the realities of the challenges and rewards of church planting.
What are we looking for in an intern?
We are looking for a committed follower of Christ who is already an actively involved member of a local church. They need to have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ through consistent prayer and Bible study in a personal quiet time. They must have previously demonstrated the ability to share the gospel with others.
What will I do as an intern?
Being a self-starter, you will look for opportunities to engage in the local community that you are placed in. Our leadership team will guide and equip you with general information about your neighborhood/community and give you some suggestions on how to best engage with people there. After that, you will spend your time praying in your neighborhood, looking for opportunities to meet new people, and building relationships. In doing this, you will be joining in the vision to connect, equip, and mobilize people for the glory of God.
You will also be joining our leadership team in planning meetings and will assist alongside in preparing and leading outreach events and short term mission teams.
