PVC Internship Program

Our internship program is designed to identify, equip, and release ministry leaders of the future.

Do you feel a calling on your heart to enter full-time ministry? Are you currently attending college and want some insight into what it is like to experience working at a large multi-site church? Are you ready to take your level of commitment to serving the Church to the next level? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then the PVC Internship program may be your next step!

As an intern at PVC, you will experience the way ministry happens at a large multi-site church. This experience, combined with the relationships developed with experienced ministry leaders, will prepare you for your future in ministry.
