Summer internship

A Cornerstone summer internship is a hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves opportunity to serve Jesus and his church while being trained and discipled by experienced ministry leaders.

This is more than training — it’s an invitation to grow in your love and knowledge of God, increase your dependence on the Holy Spirit, and further the mission of Jesus.

Our next summer internship dates are yet to be announced. We provide all course materials, books, and training aids. All internships are unpaid.

Training & Equipping

You'll receive quality training by skilled teachers, pastors, and ministry staff. But more than head knowledge, you'll also get hands-on experience in various aspects of ministry, serving alongside our ministry apprentices and experienced leaders to help advance God's kingdom here in Christchurch.

Discipleship & Growth

You'll have opportunities to engage with God personally and profoundly through regular discipleship and personalised growth plans. This is not for the faint of heart. You will be challenged in your understanding of God, stretched in your character to be more like Jesus, and grown in your skills and abilities to serve Jesus!

Structure & Flexibility

The internship requires 2.5 days per week plus attending Equip conference:

  • Sundays: attending and serving at church

  • Monday training: 9 am–3.30 pm

  • Four hours of flexible ministry and reading time

  • Attend Equip Conference 6-10 January 2025
