NewSpring Internships

God called you. We want to prepare you.

NewSpring internships involve more than getting coffee and sitting in meetings. NewSpring internships exist to build the person building the kingdom.

Hear from one of our lead pastors about why training and equipping future church leaders matters to Jesus and to us. 

How do I apply?

Internships for Spring 2022 are closed. Applications for Summer Internships will be available in February.

Why intern?

“As a musician, I've never been cared for and nurtured as I have been during this internship. I'm super thankful for a weekly touchpoint with other interns around the state. I learned that the more invested I am in our time together, the more edifying it is." - Mykel Perdue

“I knew this season would be awesome but had no idea how transformative it would be. I am so confident in my identity and know that what God brings me into will always be better than anything I could ever want or desire. Do this internship! The training, shepherding, and community that you gain will prepare you for a lifetime of following Jesus.” - Phillip Rast

"This internship exceeded my expectations, because I learned more than I thought I would. I honestly just thought that I’d help out just a little bit with events and get an idea of what it would be like to be on an events team. In reality, I was very much a part of the team, was given a lot of responsibilities and roles, and was even able to lead some of the events. This helped so much! I have been really challenged, but it has also helped me feel very equipped. I also didn’t expect the assignment side to grow me so much, but it helped me dig so much deeper than I would have on my own and helped me realize extremely important things about God and myself. 10/10 — would recommend.” - Olivia Rodriguez

“I don't feel like I'm the same person I was walking into this internship. God is continually giving me new revelations of Him and renewing my mind. This internship has paved the way into having a solid identity as His beloved.” - Tanisha Muong

What to Expect

At NewSpring, you’ll find meaningful hands-on experience and a mentor who is invested in shepherding you along your journey. You’ll read books, make presentations, and take part in assignments designed to stretch you. 

Interns also serve an average of 25 hours a week for one, two, or three semesters. Internship length varies based on the area of ministry.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where will my internship be?

It depends on the role. Each internship is for a specific role at one of 14 campuses in South Carolina. Be sure to note the location when you submit your application.

Which ministry areas have internships available?

Internship opportunities become available when there is a willing, intentional mentor and meaningful, kingdom-building assignments for an intern to steward.

Will I get paid?

This is an unpaid, educational internship program. However, a stipend of $300 per week will be provided to help offset any expenses you may incur as a part of the internship program.

What does a typical week look like?

Not much in ministry is typical, and your schedule will depend on the location and position you apply for. Aside from a standing weekly meeting, you can expect your participation in the internship to take about 25 hours a week, including Sundays. Your mentor will work with you to ensure the best use of your time and schedule.

Who is eligible to apply?

Internships are open to any young adult who has graduated high school in the past two to 10 years and is passionate about making ministry their full-time career. The only prerequisite is a hunger to keep learning.

Will I get a job after my internship?

Internships should equip you for your future, wherever that may be. The win for every intern is an intentional season of growth — not a job at NewSpring.
