Summer Internships

WHAT MAKES A GREAT INTERNSHIP?

Community

Interns come from all over the country with all different backgrounds, and though exciting, it can be difficult to step into a new position, new team and new city. With this in mind, we’ve built into our program regular opportunities for interns and residents to build community with one another, both in and outside our church.

Intentional Training

As believers we experience lasting growth when we increase in knowledge, character and skills. We call these three components – head, heart and hands. Our supervisors play a key role in our program, as they intentionally develop each intern or resident for a missional life that glorifies God through all three dimensions of growth.

Church-Based

We believe the strongest and best leadership training should come out of the local church. Jesus gave to the church leaders to equip the saints for the work of ministry, so we whole-heartedly believe it is in the local church where future leaders can be best nurtured, challenged, trained, and released for ministry.

All ASI opportunities have the primary focus of leadership development. While some residency programs focus on what a resident might bring to an organization, our program is different. Our commitment is to the growth and development of each resident in three facets:

  • DOCTRINE & THEOLOGY

  • CHARACTER & AFFECTIONS

  • HANDS-ON SKILLS
