Ministry Internship


The Mountainview Residency Program is a two-year ministry training program (with a one-year evaluation) designed to provide emerging leaders with real-life experience in a local church. This is accomplished through personal mentoring and meaningful ministry responsibilities. Residents gain
valuable ministry experience by serving as part of a staff team in one of Mountainview’s ministry areas. Over the course of two years, the resident will be encouraged to lead as well as learn. The ministry area in which a resident serves will be based on personal experience, team chemistry, and what the resident hopes to do in the future.


The purpose is to train the next generation of ministry leaders. This involves helping the resident develop the ability and skills to be effective in their chosen field of ministry. We believe that this is best accomplished through mentoring and hands-on experience. The ministry resident will be expected to be an active part of their ministry area and the church environment as a whole.

Personal development is focused on developing the spiritual maturity and character of the resident. We believe this is an essential part of both ministry training and ongoing vocational ministry. Professional development is focused on helping the resident develop the necessary competencies to be effective in ministry. In one-on-one sessions, as well in real ministry environments, the resident will learn and develop their ministry skills.

There will also be monthly gatherings of all residents for the purpose of leadership development.We believe it is important for emerging ministry leaders to experience a healthy church culture. All residents will participate fully in regular staff meetings and planning sessions, both at the ministry level and church-wide. Residents will be expected to lead as well as support our ministry initiatives.


Typical residency candidates will be ministry-minded undergraduate students or recent graduates looking for practical experience before seminary or full-time employment.
