How do I apply?

What do I get out of this internship?
The Internship is designed to equip each intern with a key set of marketable skills. Some are soft skills, such as communication, organization, strategic thinking, and creativity. Interns also learn hard skills, such as media production, computer competency, and budgeting.
Can I get college credit for this internship?
Yes. You can receive up to 6 credit hours for participating in the one-year internship if you are a student at I.U. You can also be granted full-time status while participating in this internship which means you do not have to enroll in other courses during your internship year. Consult with your undergraduate academic advisor about the internship courses offered through Career Development Services (X-373 & X-375).

How do I know if I am accepted into the Internship Program?
You will receive an email to set up a SKYPE interview once the application is processed. Following the interview, you will be contacted for next steps.
Do I have to be a member of City Church to be accepted into the Internship Program?
You do not have to be a member of City Church to apply. However, the program is built around the life of the church and you will be required to attend and serve in services scheduled throughout a given week.
Can I still work if I participate in the City Church Internship?
Yes, but you will need to plan your work schedule around your internship 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.
Does the internship offer financial aid?
City Church Internship is unable to provide financial aid. We recommend you seek sponsorship to offset the costs of relocation and housing. If you are a student at I.U., you may qualify for a scholarship to cover the fees associated with the internship. Check with your undergraduate academic advisor about this possibility.
Is there a summer internship option?
Yes. The summer internship focuses exclusively on media and production.
Can I overlap Concentrations?
You will have the opportunity to “minor” in other areas or shift the focus of your Concentration once you begin the program. Your intern advisor will assist as you make these changes.
When does the Internship Program start?
It depends. Summer interns are expected to begin in May for training. Details regarding the type and days of training will be shared with those accepted into the program. One-year internships might start in May (summer) or August (fall).
Does the City Church Internship have on-site housing/dorms?
No. We do assist those who have been accepted into the program in securing adequate housing in the form of apartments or townhomes within a close proximity to our campus. We do connect those accepted into the program when there is a request to share an apartment with another City Intern.
Do you have a daycare for my children?
The internship does not provide day care services for children.
Does City Church guarantee me a job at City Church after the completion of my internship?
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.
What should I bring?
You should have a personal phone with adequate memory and space. You will be provided with a laptop and/or tablet to be used during your term as a City Intern. The majority of your responsibilities will require that you have reliable transportation. This makes a car and valid driver’s license mandatory components to the Internship.
Is there a limit to the number of interns accepted into the program?
Yes. In order to enhance the experiences of each intern, the summer internship program is limited to 5 participants; the 1-year program is accepting 10 participants; and the 2-year program will accept 3-4 participants. If there is a high demand for the program, then these figures will be adjusted.
What are the deadlines to apply?
The summer internship deadline is April 20, 2018. The fall (one-year or two-year options) internship deadline is July 9, 2018. Since there is limited space, applicants should apply as early as possible.
