Frequently Asked Questions
Does an intern receive pay?
Yes. Prestonwood offers paid internships. Interns also receive a matriculation benefit to assist with the cost of purchasing books and materials.
What is the length of the internship?
We ask all interns to commit to a year of service. When the year is complete, we will evaluate whether an opportunity to extend the internship exists, to move up within the organization or to launch into a like-minded church.
Where do interns live?
All interns are encouraged to live close to the church and commute to school. If an intern cannot attain local lodging, our office keeps an active file of Prestonwood families that are available to serve as host homes. The intern is responsible for his/her food costs.
“The Prestonwood Intern Program
has instilled in me the knowledge
that ministry is about people
and should always be done with
excellence. Whether I’m meeting
with first-time visitors, teaching
a Bible Fellowship, or having lunch
with a member, loving people and doing
my best to serve them should be my goal. The ministers
surrounding me encourage me to this end, and I always
feel their care in helping to develop me to be a future
leader in the church.”
“Joining Prestonwood as an
intern has afforded me a huge
advantage in growing as a
ministry leader and potential
full-time minister in the future.
Throughout my internship, the
Prestonwood staff has actively
equipped me in the areas of teaching,
discipleship and ministry development, so as to launch
me into the call the Lord has placed on my life. I would
highly encourage someone starting out in ministry to
consider joining our team and being a part of what God
is doing in the Dallas area and throughout the world.”
“It has been an invaluable experience to be a part of the
Intern Program at Prestonwood. It has allowed me the
opportunity to apply the skills I am learning in seminary
in real-life ministry situations, build relationships
with fellow interns who are in a similar stage of life,
and learn from some great ministers with years of
wisdom and experience. I have been able
to participate in every ministry of the
church in at least some small way.
This internship is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that
has prepared me for success in
future ministry, and will continue
to provide me with connections
and support in future endeavors.”
