Internship Program



We are excited about equipping emerging leaders to discern their personal calling in connecting people to the life-changing power of Jesus Christ to love God and others.  The NLCC Ministry Internship is designed to provide immersive ministry experiences and intentional instruction and mentoring that reflects NLCC's Core Values:

  1. On Our Knees: Nurturing leaders in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

  2. Living the Gospel: Equipping leaders with a gospel-centred approach to life and ministry.

  3. With Shared Lives: Modeling and enveloping leaders in a community of Christ-centred leaders.

  4. Through Generous Love: Challenging leaders to expand the reach of their love for others by participating in various ministry opportunities according to, and sometimes beyond their giftings and abilities.

Intern Experiences

"My overall experience of the internship program was excellent. The course assignments ensured deep reflection and increased learning. Weekly readings and labs helped me think about leadership (and lots more) in new ways. My attachment to various ministries/teams allowed me to hone my leadership skills and practice new ones. The intentional discipleship was very helpful for me in guiding my growth in the right direction."

~ Claudia (2016-2017 Intern)

"Initially I came to the internship seeking clarity on whether full-time pastoral ministry was a path I wished to pursue. Alongside studying at Regent College, the internship has been a tangible way for me to see the inner working of the church, and to what full-time ministry is about...It has helped me to gain insight into my giftings. The internship has given me fresh vision for how to be missional in all we do."
