Yes, but you will need to plan your work schedule around your program hours. We recommend no more than part-time hours, as your responsibilities as a City Intern may be quite extensive depending upon the activities occurring within your Concentration at that time.

City internships start in the Fall, Spring or Summer.

No. The staff at City Church is built by relationships (as well as skill, character, integrity, and anointing) rather than a secular ‘job hunting’ model. We do not offer a job placement as such. The weight is on you to build relationships and sow yourself into the life of the church. With that said, we are committed to assisting every intern, post-graduation. Your Director will help you create a resume that highlights the marketable skills that you have acquired in your Concentrations. S/he will also identify potential job openings through the social networks of the City Church team.

You should have a personal phone, a personal device you can complete your work on (laptop or tablet), and reliable transportation.
