Considering options in ministry for now or the future? Applications are open to high school, college, and career-oriented adults who desire to pursue personal growth and discover ministry opportunities as a Crossroads staff intern.
When completing the application, applicants are asked to identify any campus or ministry environment of interest. Wherever there’s a staff position, there is a possibility of an intern position. After the “apply by” date and phone call interviews are over, a churchwide Intern Team will determine acceptance and placement based on the number of intern openings, what’s best for the applicant, and what’s best for churchwide ministry needs. Candidates who aren’t offered an intern position are encouraged to explore volunteer roles in the area of ministry interest.
Interns may join any of the leadership development teachings provided by staff teams and ministry teams. All-Staff gatherings occur monthly. Campus and ministry teams meet weekly or bi-weekly. Interns typically gather monthly together.
Rolling applications are reviewed upon receipt. Please allow approximately two weeks for follow up phone calls which may lead to team interviews. Candidates are encouraged to apply sooner rather than later.

Interns get to play a role in the weekly tasks required to make Sundays, missions, and events possible. They will be given leadership opportunities and will be personally developed through focused teachings, hands-on experiences and one-on-one mentoring with staff members. Our goal is that interns will develop a better understanding of potential next steps in ministry or career, and feel more equipped and empowered to take those steps.
