Collegiate Internship Church Inquiry

Collegiate InternWhat is the purpose of a Collegiate Ministry Intern?
Our Collegiate Ministry internship is designed to provide churches with a college minister who can focus on building a college ministry inside the local church context. We pray that this results in firmly established college ministry that continues long after the internship is finished.

Who pays for the Internship?
The SBTC and the local church work in partnership to provide for the Intern.

Does the church have any say in who the intern is?
Yes, the intern is an employee of the local church. We work to find a fit that everyone agrees upon.

Can the intern serve the church in other areas of ministry (i.e. Youth)?
No, we expect the intern to work approximately 20 hours a week on college ministry related work as well as any additional time required on Sundays. Contact us if you have questions concerning this parameter.

Is any training provided by the SBTC for our intern?
Yes, the SBTC provides both initial training of the intern as well as ongoing training during the internship.

How do I apply/get more information?
See the contact info below to email us or visit us online.

Who pays for the Internship?
The SBTC and the local church partner up to provide the College Ministry Intern with enough money to live on. Both the church where the intern is to be placed and the SBTC EACH provide $3,000 for the 6 month internship. We also ask that churches provide the intern with housing to minimize the cost of living.

Does the church have any say in who the intern is?
We have had some churches use candidates from inside and had other churches where we have provided them with an intern outside of their church. Regardless, the SBTC has an application process which includes background checks and an interview process that are in place to try and fully vet the applicant to ensure maximum opportunity for effective ministry. 

Is there any kind of agreement the church must fill out?
Yes, but we work with the church to ensure that the intern is a proper fit with the church. Please note that it must be agreed upon by all parties involved. The agreement ensures that both parties have a similar vision for what the intern’s job is and how they need to supervise and oversee the intern. The agreement also helps to identify the role of the SBTC in training and aiding the intern on strategies and visions for their ministry.

Is any training provided by the SBTC for our intern?
Yes, the SBTC provides both initial training of the intern as well as ongoing training during the internship.
