MINISTRY IN TRAINING

WHAT IS MIT?

This is a paid internship for those with the dream, heart, character and talent for a future in the full-time ministry. We are looking to hire four interns every year to train with us for 12 to 18 months.

 

THE DREAM: To equip young men and women during their stay and send them out into the ministry upon completion of their time here.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Men and Women who want to be trained and sent out into the full-time ministry.

Everyone is welcome to apply, whether married or single.

We would prefer recent college graduates but will accept and review applications from applicants still in college.

 

WHEN IS IT?

We will be accepting applicants year round- when a position opens we will review applications and reach out to you.

HOW LONG?

The program is a one year part time internship but may be extended or shortened based on the intern’s progress.

HOW DOES THE TRAINING WORK?

  • We believe that the most effective way to train young ministers is to walk with them. In the spirit of Jesus’ method with his disciples, we are committed to a training regimen that at its core is all about spending maximum time with our interns which is why we are committed to daily contact and connection with them.

  • Formal training includes a curriculum of weekly intern meetings focused on the most vital aspects of ministry. Each month we focus on a different theme such as a minister’s prayer life, faith & vision, prioritizing and scheduling, studying with the lost, raising up leaders and more.

  • Monthly book assignments in coordination with the theme will be given to help the interns absorb the material.

  • Two eight-week classes a year we call ‘Cross-Training’ focus on topics such as leadership development, reaching the lost, building a culture and more. Additionally, interns will meet regularly with our congregational teacher for further bible training.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER GRADUATION?

It is our hope that upon successful completion of the program interns would be placed, first, in a campus ministry within the Florida family of churches where there is a need.

 

If, for any reason, a graduate of the program is called by God to serve elsewhere, or there are no available positions in Florida, our ultimate goal is to serve the kingdom and send our graduates wherever the Spirit calls them.

Support MIT

Interested in supporting MIT?

  • In order to give our interns a true ministry experience it is our hope that they will not need to work a part time job during their stay with us. We want to give our interns enough financial support to allow them to thrive in their time here and focus fully on their training.

  • In order to provide this experience, there is a continual need for funding. CampusView Church is committed to financially supporting MIT to the best of our ability- but this support is not enough to give us the funding we need to support four interns at a time.

  • We are always grateful for help from friends, family, Gainesville alumni, and anyone interested in supporting this meaningful cause. Monthly gifts are the most helpful way to contribute if you are willing and able.
