Apply for an Internship or Apprenticeship
In North America, 80% of churches have plateaued or are declining, 16% of churches are growing, 7% of churches are reproducing, and only 2% of those churches are reproducing on purpose. This goes to show that the church in America is highly ineffective at the one thing Jesus has called it to do.
In light of this, we here at Crosspoint City believe we have the responsibility to develop and multiply leaders at every level to ensure that the future church has Godly leaders committed to the Great Commission. One of the ways we accomplish this is through our Crosspoint Internship Program. Internships offer individuals who are considering the possibility of full-time ministry the opportunity to lean into God, learn from our Staff and develop leadership skills.
Our summer interns earn credit for college and learn valuable ministry experience in the process. Interns typically work around 10-12 hours a week depending on requirements for school credit.
Our Interns work 25 hours a week for ten months and receive practical ministry experience. At the end of our Internship, each has a greater understanding of what it looks like to lead a ministry, lead a team and the importance of equipping others to do Kingdom work. We believe your time here will bring greater clarity to the way that God is calling you to build His Church and make His name known.
At times there are people who would like to investigate their call to ministry but they have financial and family responsibilities. This is why we have created the Apprenticeship. The Apprenticeship allows individuals the opportunity to be invested on a high level over a period of twelve months. The goal is to help each Apprentice to determine their giftings, calling, and the next steps in their journey.
