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?

Applications for spring internships have closed. Check back later to apply for the fall.

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.

Why intern?

“This experience has been way more than a résumé builder. It has been an opportunity to uncover more of God's heart for me, His calling over my life, and the ways He has equipped and anointed me to live out that calling.” - Jake Holland

“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

“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

“God used meaningful ministry experience, paired with intentional relationships, to help me mine out and clarify my calling. But above that, He used the internship program to draw me closer to Him and stir my love for His church. No matter where I land, that will always be valuable!” - Sam Walker

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.
