All About The Ministry Leadership Program
At CPLC, we see the intern ministry as an investment in the Kingdom of God and the leaders of the future Church. Our heart is not to delegate tasks but to give each person engaging opportunities to grow in their capacity to lead others. At CPLC, this training transcends a basic curriculum and focuses on developing passionate disciples compelled to change the world for Christ.
Our goal is to teach, train, and equip those with a calling to serve God and others in ministry and the marketplace. With the support of the CPC staff, interns will discover and walk in their calling by participating weekly in hands-on ministry experiences. Additionally, participants will develop strong leadership skills, a deeper relationship with Christ and gain invaluable insight into the inner workings of the local church.
What You Need To Know
The CPC Internship will help prepare you for the next steps in ministry through a year of focused training, spiritual growth, and intentional leadership opportunities. Interns will work alongside ministry leaders who act as teachers, coaches, and mentors. We strive to produce Kingdom-minded leaders by equipping individuals to fulfill the three central values of the church: Connect, Grow, Go.
What To Expect
You will grow personally, spiritually and professionally all while being encouraged to discover and develop your gifts to the fullest. Through the CPLC program, interns will get to experience all aspects of ministry and the day-to-day functions of the church as a whole. We will help you pursue and fully uncover your God-given gifts and talents, work to develop those fully, and devote them to a lifetime of learning, serving and honoring God. You will thrive in an atmosphere that will provide structure and stimulate you mentally and spiritually.
