Current Internships Available:
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, the Intern 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.
How many hours does an intern work weekly?
Most interns work about 25 hours during the week; in addition, interns are expected to participate in services on weekends. Due to the nature of ministry, there will be times when more is asked of all staff. The supervising staff minister will work with the intern to coordinate the work/school semester schedule.
