“COMMIT THIS SEASON TO SERVE & GROW, AND JUST WATCH WHAT GOD DOES.”
Relate Interns is a remarkable opportunity for young adults to receive spiritual and leadership tools in a faith filled, intimate, and dynamic environment. We believe in the great potential of young people to change the world, and we are committed to creating an environment where you can grow and be challenged through teaching and serving opportunities.
You’ll receive one-on-one mentoring, interact with the pastors and staff at Relate, and experience first hand the behind-the-scenes workings of church life. Each week you will receive teaching from the Relate pastors and team as well as world-class guest speakers, and you’ll have a chance to serve and minister in the Church and the surrounding community.
You will probably work harder than you have before, and be incredibly stretched both spiritually and personally. You will grow in leadership and will walk away changed and equipped to impact your world in an incredible way.
Your application for Relate Interns will include an interview to position you in a ministry where you will receive hands-on leadership training. Our goal is to find a place for you on the team where your gifts and passions are engaged and developed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE SCHEDULE?
The Interns Program runs from September to the end of April, with a missions trip likely scheduled in May. The time commitment for Relate Interns is about 20 hours per week. This includes Ministry School on Monday evenings, class time, and ministry service through the week. Interns are also required to serve at 3 of our weekly services. Your individual schedule will be discussed and determined before acceptance is finalized.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Tuition for the year is $400. A payment of $200 is due on or before the first day of both semesters (September 12, 2017 and January 9, 2018). There is also an additional $50 application fee. The interns typically organize and participate in a year-end missions trip, and it will be the responsibility of each intern to fundraise and contribute all funds toward the cost of this trip.
CAN I HAVE A PART TIME JOB?
We understand that interns may need to support themselves and so we’ve allowed time within the week for you to acquire a part time job. It is important to note that employment will need to work around the Intern schedule (determined upon acceptance). Interns are required to serve at all conferences and church leadership events.
CAN I SERVE AT MY HOME CHURCH AND ATTEND RELATE INTERNS?
No. The internship is an "all in" kind of commitment, and so we ask all Relate Interns to attend and serve at Relate Church for the duration of the internship. You'll need permission from your pastor to participate.
DO YOU ACCEPT INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS?
Yes! You are more than welcome to apply. Relate Church will not be able to assist you financially for travel or visas. Also, because this is a nine month long internship, Relate Church is not able to provide visa sponsorships. Lodging and transportation is the full responsibility of each intern.
