Missional Internship Cohort
August 2017-August 2019
August 2017-August 2019
In an increasingly diverse, complex, and broken world, the body of Christ is still called to “preach the Message of good news to the poor, announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, to set the burdened and battered free, to announce this is God’s year to act!” (Luke 4:18-19, MSG). It seems, however, that the idea of the Church being the hands of feet of Jesus (which got dirty) has taken the back seat to other ideas like comfort and security. The Missional Internship Cohort seeks to provide training for the next generation of leaders in the Church to live into, and invite others others into, this calling of loving and serving our neighbors on the margins.
1. Commissioned Lay Pastor Ordination
You will receive theological training from a variety of excellent seminary professors and bold Church leaders through the Presbytery of San Francisco’s CLP program.
You will get to attend the annual CCDA National Conferences whose mission is to inspire, train, and connect Christians for the sake of biblical justice. The 2017 conference will be held in Detroit, Michigan.
3. Fundraising and Financial Support Team Training
You will learn how to create and sustain an enjoyable financial support team for whatever God may ask you to do for the Kingdom. This training will be given by Reverend Jake D. Medcalf, founder of UrbanLife, YoungLife Area Director, and current Senior Pastor of FPCH.
4. Christian Community Development Trip to El Salvador
ENLACE (pronounced en-lah-say) is the Spanish word for LINK and commits to a 10 year relationship with a local church in El Salvador. We will work with ENLACE as they equip church leaders to become effective agents of change as they understand who they are as a body, listen to their community, and respond to opportunities for developing sustainable solutions to poverty.
Date: July 10-14, 2017
5. Internship Emphasis Specific Conferences
There are multiple conferences that interns will be sent to correlating with their emphasis. For example: a Multi-cultural Worship Intern will attend the Glocal Musicians Collective’s Annual Musician’s Training in Chicago, while an Urban Youth Leadership Intern will have the opportunity to attend the Urban Youth Workers Institute’s National Conference in Los Angeles.
