2023 NEXT High School Internship Grants

published 2/21/2023

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:
       -Leadership development
       -Children, youth, and family ministry
       -Social justice
       -Leading a Bible study

Please complete this online form to have your church considered for this grant.

Applications are due April 15, 2023.
