Internships are designed to equip college students and those in the marketplace with the skills and experience they need as they prepare for vocational ministry. Through a combination of core competencies, practical experience, and ministry coaching, People who go through our internship program will have received exposure to many ministry tracks.


Residencies are available to college graduates or those from the marketplace 22 years old and up. The Resident program is for one year. Residents earn a living and educational reimbursment  but are welcome to seek a part-time role if needed. Occasionally the residency can be extended to a second year. Our residency falls into two tracks: 1) The masters track, earning a Masters Degree from Johnson University 2) The professional track, gaining the skills and experience needed to be prepared for vocational ministry.
