This is an internship program, and then some.  You won't be asked to get coffee or do busy work.  This is about growing into the person God created you to be.  But you won't be alone.  As a Full-Time intern, you will...

  • Serve 9 months of the year: September-May or January-August.
  • Work 40 hours a week including some evening and weekends within the ministry area that appeals to your interests, skills, and passions.  If you're unsure about that, we'll help you figure it out!
  • Be a part of a forward-thinking, risk-taking, ministry that is making a lasting different by helping people find and follow Jesus.
  • Have an opportunity to develop under some of the best leaders in ministry and work in a team environment that encourages personal and professional growth.
  • Have a personal mentor who is specifically devoted to pouring into your life and building you up throughout the entire internship.
  • Take part in learning and development opportunities like book discussions, ministry outreach programs, learning sessions for Oakbrook Staff, and a trip to a conference.
