Can I work another job or take summer
classes in addition to the Internship?
internship works best when it receives focused attention as the primary focus
for the intern. However, if an intern
desires to have another job or take classes that will not conflict with the
internship, that is understandable. Please note that in the past, taking summer
classes has caused some distraction, so be wise and well-thought out if
registering for summer classes. This is
an ‘all-in’ internship that requires energy and passion. The intern needs to be
committed for the summer in order to get the desired experience.
Do I have to currently attend or be a
member of DeepWater Church?
No, this internship
is designed for all next generation leaders in the church. We feel compelled to
help equip you regardless of where you attend church locally. It is important to note that while an intern
you are asked to attend DeepWater’s worship services throughout the summer.
Is this Internship just for future
pastors or church leaders?
No, this internship is
for college-age or graduate students who desire to grow in their understanding of
Jesus, the church, and their role as a future part of Christ’s Kingdom. We do however believe that this internship
will be most valuable to those considering full time vocational ministry and at
times this could come into play as we review candidates.
