College Pastoral Internship Program

Date Posted: 12/11/2017

We are now accepting applications for the 2018 College Pastoral Internship Program!

This Pastoral Internship Project for College Students was designed to encourage a diverse group of gifted young candidates to enter pastoral service in the Texas Annual Conference, and to equip local congregations to identify and encourage persons with appropriate gifts and graces and a clear sense of call to commit to pastoral ministry, the Center for Clergy Excellence offers a pastoral internship for college students.

Interns are sent to serve local churches for several weeks each summer. Interns receive a stipend for their work and connect with one another at orientation and reflection retreat gatherings. Host churches will agree to provide the interns with housing (if needed), mentoring, and a full range of exposure to all facets of pastoral ministry.

At the end of each summer, pastoral interns return to college not only with local church experience, but with relationships designed to sustain them throughout lifelong careers in ministry.

Intern Application

In addition, we are seeking Host Churches in which our summer interns will serve. If you are a Pastor with the desire to serve as a mentor to an intern interested in exploring the ministry as a vocation, we would love for you to complete an application for your congregation to be a Host Church!!
