The Ministry Internship program forms part of the Regional Leadership track;
through which we want to see ministers identified and raised as leaders with
a hunger to impact the nations for the Glory of Jesus. We are convicted by
Ephesians 4 where God defines the purpose of the 5-fold ministry in a short
paragraph, to “equip the saints for ministry.”

Spreading the Gospel to Every Nation in the world

18  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20


Every Nation is a worldwide family of churches and ministries that exists to honour God by establishing Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.


To plant Christ-centered, Spirit Empowered and socially responsible churches and campus ministries in the key educational, cultural and business centres in Africa, Europe and beyond, we need high-capacity leaders. The Ministry Internship exists as a starting point in identifying and equipping leaders for effective ministry. Using a multi-channel approach including classroom, and cultural experiences while actively ministering and building in your local ministry context helps to build theologically sound but practically equipped leaders.


Ministry Internship is a 2-year program that tests and builds your call to vocational ministry as well as your leadership capacity. The course is completed in your local church context, but if you would so choose, in the nations as part of our Global or Mobile Every Nation initiatives. It is designed to serve people and the local church for future vocational ministry, empowering leaders in all fundamental areas of ministry. The core curriculum is divided into four areas:


Churches that raise interns through this program can be confident that each student will be comprehensively equipped. There is significant input through; L215, book readings, practical
ministry, mentorship, discipleship and missions.


• Certainty of Vocational Ministry Calling: Many men and women sense a call to vocational ministry but lack certainty. The Internship structure includes practical ministry involvement, mentoring, an academic curriculum and an assessment that is designed to help Ministry Interns and their leaders; get to a place of personal conviction about their personal ministry call – whether it be vocational or marketplace ministry.
• Exposure to Every Nation Ministry values, practices and structures: To ensure that our Ministry Interns understand that specific ministry areas synergize with many other ministries to form a healthy effective church. Also that our churches form part of a greater whole Regionally and Internationally.

• Identify Specific Ministry Calling: Men and women who have certainty about their vocational ministry calling in Every Nation are provided with training, mentoring and teaching while they serve in a specific ministry assignment to purposefully test their specific ministry calling.
• Leadership assessment and development: They will be given specific leadership responsibilities where they can grow and learn how to build and lead ministry teams. Their leadership will be assessed based on proven ministry leadership principles and will be given constructive feedback to help them develop and grow as a leader.
