The Rock Point Internship Program is meant to complement a college student’s (undergraduate, or graduate) class experience with skill development, professional coaching, discussion-based training, and hands-on experience to develop a holistic church ministry perspective and prepare him/her for a successful, long term, ministry career.
WHO WE ARE: Rock Point Church, a 3000+ congregation, was named by Outreach magazine as the 15th fastest growing church in the U.S. It is located in the southeast part of the Phoenix metro area and known for great music, authentic teaching, dedicated youth and kids programs. It’s a mix of ages and ethnicities at different places on their spiritual journey, a community of faith committed to pointing people to Jesus by loving people like Jesus.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR: We are currently accepting applications for this compensated Ministry Internship. We are looking for men and woman who are fun, outgoing, love Jesus, love people, have a passion to help others find God and want to be a part of our dynamic and growing ministry!. (See “application requirements” below.)
To develop a holistic perspective on church ministry, 10+ Rock Point department heads will be joining us throughout the internship for discussion-based training on their role in the church.
To develop leadership, ministry and personal skills, 10+ different skill concepts will be identified, trained and practiced, utilizing team experience and discussion, coach training, and occasional guest lecturers.
Interns will directly work with and be coached by their ministry track department head. Coaching will include: weekly planning meetings, hip-to-hip weekend ministry, and monthly one on ones.
