NEF will be starting an intern program for those with a call to ministry. This will be an opportunity to receive practical hands on ministry training in the context of a thriving Spirit filled church and a place to step into the fullness of the ministry God has for you.
The program will be based around five areas:
We will ask those participating in the program to commit to serving as leaders of our Saturday service. The interns will serve as part of our core leader team for the Saturday Celebration.
Each month Pastor Graham Jones will hold an evening ministry mentoring session. During this time Graham will teach on different areas of ministry and answer questions from the interns.
Each member of the intern program will have a personal mentor and commit to work with the mentor in areas of growth and spiritual disciplines.
We will ask each member of the program to work on a project within the context of the church. This will be a opportunity to lean how to plan, implement, lead and resource the dreams that God gives.
As part of the intern program we will recommend several resources aimed at developing the intern in their ministry call.
