Because we believe that kingdom influence is more about sending capacity than seating capacity, we embrace our calling as a sending church that invests in next generation leaders (Matthew 9:35-38; Acts 13:1-3).

South Park Church is looking for two internship students to serve in a one-year internship with the possibility of a second-year residency.

We are committed to

  • Developing deep and healthy relationships among staff and interns.
  • Providing wide exposure to ministry environments and meaningful ministry experiences.
  • Commissioning and championing leaders who may serve locally or globally.

What We Offer

  • We are a church family who excels at welcoming people into community.
  • We have a talented and theologically astute staff eager to invest in next generation leaders.
  • Our multi-generational ministries share a passion for making disciples from cradle to grave and have pursued innovative ways of making this a reality.

  • We are nurturing increased awareness of and involvement in transformative justice within our congregation and beyond.
  • We offer exposure to the church renewal movement known as The Great Banquet (a counterpart to Cursillo, Emmaus, and Tres Dias movements). It builds on a three day retreat that immerses guests in God’s grace and partners with other churches in the process.

  • Interns will work 15 hours a week.
  • Interns who are selected will receive a $3,000 scholarship per semester in the first year.
