We're excited to offer this opportunity for your church to raise up the next generation of leaders!
Your church can apply for a $500 grant to be used toward a high school intern for your church this summer. Grant funds should be used toward intern compensation. Our hope is that this internship will be more than a pair of extra hands around church or a summer job for a student. Your NEXT internship should be an invitation for a young person in your community to discern about their own sense of vocation, to explore what a ministry career might look like, and to experience discipleship from a leader's point of view.
Priority will be given to newly created high school internships. Please indicate if you are creating a new opportunity within your congregation and community.
High school interns must be given the opportunity to experience leadership in at least TWO of the following ministy areas:
-Children, youth, and family ministry
-Leading a Bible study
Please complete this online form to have your church considered for this grant.
Applications are due April 15, 2023.
