CIL Internship Program

The CIL Internship Program exists to develop ministerial leaders within the church and their communities.

An intern at CIL will work one-on-one with a pastor or ministerial leader on staff and gain practical ministry experience while simultaneously being spiritually empowered to become a faithful servant of Christ and a mature believer of the gospel. The CIL internship program provides a safe place for young adults to explore their passions, learn new strengths, be discipled, and gain clarity on their God-given callings.
