Internship (INT)

Learning is more than just sitting in a classroom. Putting that learning into practice is so much more valuable (and fun!) 

Our Diploma program includes a Practicum in which you will participate with your faith through serving to help others know Jesus. Our Associates Program has an internship where you will help lead a volunteer team along side a supervisor.

Not only will you be earning college credit by helping others, you'll also

build your skills, meet cool people, and put down roots in your community.

When you start the year, you get to choose your volunteer area at your own home church (if you aren't currently serving). 


Practicum | DBS (Year 1) 

(3 credits/year)

Our faith is to be active, not passive. The Practicum will help you practice your faith through participating in the Christian life: personally through Scripture reading, corporately through church attendance, and cooperatively through serving. 

Internship | ACLM (Year 2) 

(6 credits/year)

This program is for leadership development, so the internship goes from just serving on a team to leading a ministry team. It expects the basics of daily prayer and time in God's Word, consistent church attendance, and doing the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12). The goal of this course is to set you up to know how to lead effectively in your ministry calling.


Each student's internship is unique to his/her interests, gifts, schedule, and - most importantly - home church. Our Internship Coordinator will work with your pastor to develop a suitable internship position for you. Distance Learning? No problem! We'll work with you to determine what your internship needs to look like for your current season of life.
