Internship Structure

How does the Cultivate Internship works? What will you learn? How will you connect with churches and ministries? Check out the main points of our Internship structure to find out:

Strengths Finder 2.0 – Each intern takes this assessment to identify his or her top five strengths. They will reflect upon and refine them during their internship in conversations with their manager, APC and/or Cultivate staff.

Root Groups – Interns in each location participate in small groups that create space for prayer, conversation, encouragement, and spiritual practice.

Weekly Updates- Interns meet one-on-one weekly with their APC or OneHope staff member to discuss guided reflections and interpret the impact of their internship experience.

Ministry Placement – Interns serve in their ministry placement with a OneHope or partner ministry team. Their leaders identify projects that will further the organizational mission and vision. The interns apply the outcome-based ministry design process to conduct research, design effective solutions, implement, and/or evaluate progress on their ministry projects.

Outcome-based Ministry Training – Interns are trained in the outcome-base ministry paradigm, learning its fundamental principles, tools, and applications.

Worldview Development – Interns discuss, consider, and refine their understanding of cultural engagement and ministry best practice in sessions taught by OneHope staff and ministry partners.

Local Church – Interns serving with local church partners actively engage in the life of that community. Interns at OneHope’s international office or regional teams connect with diverse local congregations.

Cross-Cultural Education – Each internship location is an intentionally cross-cultural experience. Interns learn to understand their own culture, the culture of others, and experience how the two can intersect for meaningful relationships and impactful ministry.

Cohort Experience – Cultivate internships are intentionally designed cohort experiences. One of the best avenues of development – and most impactful elements of the internship – is the community formed by diverse individuals living and serving together for Kingdom growth.
