At MBC it is our vision to be a church that is intentional about discipleship, and one key way we can do this is by inviting Interns to come and work for us as part of their seminary education. This allows us, as a congregation, to invest in the future ministers of the Kingdom of God with our time, our resources, our prayer and our support, while we also benefit from being a training ground for them to ‘cut their teeth’ in practical, on- the-ground, ministry.
The MBC Biblical Leadership Internship Program is not solely for men desiring to be preaching pastors, however. We have streams for men and women in Youth Ministry, Discipleship, Women’s Ministry and Biblical Studies, all of which serve to develop a deeper Biblical knowledge, a framework for Biblical teaching and a skilled approach to applying that knowledge in the local church context. If, after serving as an Intern, you decide staff ministry isn’t for you, you’ll still be able to look back and see how you’ve grown and developed – it won’t be time wasted!
Our interns will interact in many ways with the body of the church, serving in areas that will help them to develop their skills, but also serving in areas that will help them appreciate the diverse and multi-faceted entity that is the modern, local church. Beyond the practical aspects of ministry, the Interns will continue with their studies for seminary, and will also be required to do theological papers and expositional excerpts on issues they encounter during their time at MBC.
