June 15th – July 31st
The NPC Internship Program exists to raise up the next generation of leaders in the Church and in the community through working side-by-side with the staff at North Pointe Church.
What if you could accelerate your ministry experience with a focused, intentional season of hands-on ministry right here at North Pointe?
NPC Internships is a program created for that very purpose. We want to provide you with practical ministry experience, teach you essential biblical principles, and equip you with invaluable leadership opportunities.
Why NPC Internships?
This program provides a unique opportunity for Interns to learn real-life ministry lessons and leadership principles that they can carry throughout their ministries and their lives in general. Interns will see and experience what practical ministry is and learn how to thrive therein and expand the kingdom through it.
Interns will also have the opportunity for personal growth through the teaching of leadership principles and the discipling by the head of the ministry in which they are serving.
The NPC Internship Program afford the participants a “real world” opportunity to experience ministry. Depending on their phase of development and previous experience, they will either: Watch & Learn, Work & Grow, or Stretch & Launch.
Valuable lessons will be learned in their time in the program as they experience what it takes to care for God’s people and manage God’s resources. There are few training grounds outside of academia focused on the development of those who believe God is calling them to full time vocational Christian ministry. This is a program designed to do just that.
From time management, project administration, volunteer coordination, to message preparation and worship planning, this program allows the participants to take their next steps into ministry in a structured, proctored, and developmentally centered environment.
Our Summer internship program exists to give participants a rigorous and intentional summer that is devoted to Christ and His Church. Interns will serve on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am to 4:00pm; however, the schedule is flexible to meet student’s needs. Interns will be divided into teams based what year of the internship they are in. The summer internship has three separate years that an intern could participate in:
- First year interns will choose three ministries to work in during the summer.
- Second year interns will choose two ministries to work in over the summer.
- Third year interns will choose one ministry to work in.
This will afford the interns the opportunity to learn about and experience all that the Church has to offer. Throughout the summer, interns will be working on minor projects that are ministry specific. They will also be working on a Church-wide major project. Every week there will be a corporate gathering dedicated to worship, Bible teaching, and leadership development.
Those participating in the North Pointe Internship program to fulfill a need for college will be given the option to pick one ministry to participate in over the summer in order to fulfill the needs required by their institution
During the program, interns will be reading three books that are to be chosen by the Pastors and Intern Director of North Pointe Church. The participants will write book reports on the books that will be submitted to the Intern Director for review.

Applicants must have certain qualities in order to be selected as Interns; therefore, there is an application that must be filled out. NPC will only admit the best applicants into the program in order to develop the most effective future leadership for the equipping of the Church.
This program calls on the Interns to invest in the Church and into their Internship. While they are not required to be members of NPC, Interns should demonstrate the “ten commitments of a member” as described on the NPC website.
Each intern will be assigned a mentor that they will meet with weekly during the internship. This is to help and develop the intern as a follower of Christ, help them grow spiritually, and to help them build positive relationship with the NPC Staff.
There is no application or tuition fee for the NPC Internship Program. Any cost will be on an individual basis for books.
15 years and up
Each person who desires to be part of the North Pointe Church internship program will need to fill out an application, receive two letters of recommendation, one from a NPC member and the other from the NPC Staff Member. The applicant will also have to be interviewed by the Internship Director
