Intern Applications

Join my team for 2023

I’m looking for three interns who are interested in learning more about speaking and writing as they follow God’s call on their lives. (You can live anywhere across the country as most of our interaction will be via zoom, email, and social media.)

This one year commitment will provide experience, feedback, and coaching as you seek to discern God’s path.

Benefits of joining the team:

1. Monthly team meeting (via zoom) which will include a ministry update, coaching content for writers/speakers, as well as answering any personal or ministry questions.

2. Personal 30 minute meeting (via zoom) for one-on-one coaching and accountability bi-monthly. This will include goal-setting and support in your writing/speaking projects.

3. Opportunity to travel to a speaking engagement and meet ministry partners or to come to a Bible study taping.
