Interning at Catch The Fire
Many graduates of the School of Ministry stay at Catch The Fire as an intern. Our interns are trainees that volunteer their time at Catch The Fire, while receiving incredible training and mentorship. Interning at Catch The Fire will help set you up for success in your future career and ministry.
Why become an Intern?
Here are some reasons that students decide to become interns
Learn more about ministry, behind the scenes - what does it really look like to pastor a church? Handle international ministry communications? Run a successful Youth program? Publish life-changing Christian books?
Train in a specific area - there are a huge variety of internships available (see internship opportunities below)
Become immersed in the culture of Catch The Fire - Spending a year working alongside people who are passionate about encountering God, being transformed and changing the world with their unique giftings, is bound to change you!
Great work experience - Many workplaces and ministries are looking for people with experience, and with a huge variety of internship opportunities on offer, each intern completes their internship with valuable training and experience that can be transferred into countless work roles. We've had students with little previous work experience launch into exciting careers after their internship, and students with established careers find vision and refreshing as they develop skills and spend time in the values at Catch The Fire.
Incredible opportunities - Interns are regularly involved in church ministry outside of their internship. Pastoral interns have sung in the House of Prayer, graphic design interns have helped with ministry in strip clubs, and kids ministry interns have been part of the AV team at conferences - to name a few! Interns also have the chance to go on mission trips with teams from Catch The Fire.
Any internship completed within a ministry approved by the the School of Ministry will give you credits towards the School of Ministry Diploma.
