Soma Internship Program
As we look to the future, we are convinced that holistic leadership development is a key component to vital, long-term city renewal. Therefore, one of our core priorities as a church is to release a movement of self-aware servants for the church and city. One important stream of leadership development is our Internship Program, which serves to expose, equip, and assess aspiring leaders within the context of the local church.
Current internship offerings include (but may not be limited to):
- Pastoral ministry
- Soma Kids (kids' ministry)
- Operations: finances, legal
Please read through the internship packet before applying.
1. Fill out the application by May 26
Applications for the summer internship are due May 26. Year-long internships and church planting residency applications are received throughout the year based on availability.
2. Reference/recommendation form
After you have finished the application, please have one or two ministry references complete the recommendation form found online. If you currently attend Soma, the reference must come from a Soma member or leader.
Upon receiving your application and ministry references, you will be contacted by a Soma ministry leader in order to set up an interview for your internship. Accepted applicants will meet with their internship mentor to discuss the intern’s goals as well as Soma’s expectations for interns. Accepted interns are encouraged to prepare specific goals and priorities for their internship and discuss the support-raising process.
Once a ministry schedule has been set and support-raising is complete, the internship will begin!
