Youth Ministry

Leading Gen Z to believe, belong, be trained, and be strong is not easy, but IS worth every second invested! The youth intern track is an energetic environment designed to help you grow in relationship and lead by serving others. We encourage and equip youth interns to work hard, play hard, and live life with students!

Worship Ministry

Through the Northwest Hills Worship Internship, you will learn what it means to truly lead God’s people in singing His praises.  You will learn how to illuminate a stage, fill a room with sound, lead volunteers, read and write music, focus a congregation’s attention toward Christ, dwell richly on His words, and articulate those words from a Sunday platform.  You will learn to be as invisible as you must be, and as present as you can be, all for the praise and glory of the King.

Pastoral Ministry

The pastoral residency is aimed at equipping people who want to go into full-time pastoral ministry.  As a resident you will get a front-row seat to see what leading a church is all about. You will develop your pastoral leadership through experiences in teaching, preaching, leading, and shepherding. An ideal candidate will either have a theological education or be in the process of earning one.

Children’s Ministry

Develop your God-given gift of ministering to children through hands-on experiences — teaching in large-group and small-group settings, discipling kids from preschool through upper-elementary, and planning outreach events like Sports Camp, Movie Night, etc.  In addition, learn to lead a volunteer team as you help to plan training events and fellowship events for the Children’s Ministry team. Most importantly, deepen your faith in God as you stretch yourself in service and rely on Him to work mightily through you and to guide you to the next steps in your faith-journey.
