Internships & Leadership Cohorts




"As a new Christian, my internship at Ethnos helped me form the solid theological foundation I needed while also providing me with the necessary tools and opportunities to live out my faith practically.  The entire process was an amazing blessing and I can't thank the staff enough.  I would recommend that anyone who is considering doing an internship at Ethnos take advantage of this great resource."
Rhett Allen, Children's Ministry Staff with Calvary Chapel in Boise, Idaho

“The Ethnos internship created a season in my life during which I could make God's kingdom the focal point of my life and schedule.  This gave me a point of reference and some key habits and experiences that helped me carry a kingdom focus into other areas of my life.  The great thing about the internship was having the freedom to experiment with some things that were new to me, as well as things that I already felt God had placed on my heart.  And along with all of this, it gave me a closer connection to people in the Ethnos community.”
Annie Marino, former teacher in the Middle East


If you're interested in exploring God's call in your life in relationship to church ministry, then Ethnos' Internship Program is for you. Our internships are for one year, but can also be adjusted to six months for unique circumstances. The positions are customized according to your passions and gifts, along with the church's current vision and ministry needs.

Internships include:
  • Assessment tests to determine areas of gifting, passion and strengths.
  • 15-20 hours of weekly ministry and development.
  • Personal mentoring with pastoral staff.
  • Holistic learning through class times, assignments and shadowing.
Internship Areas:
  • Children
  • Youth
  • College
  • Teaching, Adult Transformation
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Visual Art
  • Graphic Design
  • Social Media & Marketing
  • Community Outreach
  • Administration
  • Other (we adjust based on your calling)

In addition, we have more academic internships that are research focused for those pursuing transformation through vocations outside of "full-time ministry."  For more, contact us at the information below.

Funding Your Internship:

Interns are expected to work part time and also do fundraising as part of the ministry development.  However, housing in some cases is provided free of charge. A detailed financial description of internship fundraising is available upon request.
