Throughout the year, the internship team will embark upon a number of outings where the team will have the opportunity to learn, bond and have fun together. Some of these outings include team retreats, short-term domestic mission trips, and other day trips and team adventures. The cost of all of these trips are built right into the cost of the internship, we've got you covered! See some pics below.
Students will be developed academically through accredited Bible courses with Pacific Life Bible College (PLBC), through which the Northgate Internship Program functions as a "micro-campus". The students will be stretched in their faith and theological understanding while gaining transferrable Bible College credits. Interns will also participate in retreats, conferences, and leadership development endeavours in order to be sharpened and grown as leaders.
Get real-time experience of what it is like to be in local church ministry! Each intern will be placed in a specific ministry area (ie. youth, young adults/college ministry, family and kids, social mercy, worship, graphic design and creative ministries), based on their personal passions and ministry need. Interns will spend 25-30 hours a week working alongside the Northgate staff, leading in various capacities, and hosting exciting events at the church.
In addition to the accredited Bible College courses, interns will work through several classes relating to God, the Church, and ministry taught by members of Northgate Staff. They will also undergo weekly one-on-one coaching with one of the internship directors or a church leader from Northgate.
Each out-of-area intern will be assigned a host family for the duration of the internship year. They will be provided with food & lodging, and have the opportunity to do life with one of the many wonderful families within our church community!
You can’t experience Vancouver Island and engage in local mission without the right merch! Every intern will receive program merch and other trinkets in the welcome pack and throughout the year.
