It’s all about becoming God’s best version of you, doing what you were created to do, and knowing the next steps to get there.

LeadershipXP internships span over a broad range of areas at Life.Church. Choose one of the tracks that best aligns with your gifts:
Full-time Campus internships are six months long, starting in January, June, and August.
Full-time Central internships are three months long. The start dates are January, June, and August.
Part-time internships are nine to 12 weeks long (June-August). The part-time internship allows all interns the opportunity to have two to three weekday nights off and some weekends if applicable.
Each intern is matched with a coach. This coach is a Life.Church staff member who is specifically devoted to pouring wisdom into your life and building you up throughout the entire internship. As an intern, you will serve as part of your coach’s staff team. This team will be a major part of your day-to-day development in the LXP program.
We invite anyone who is at least 18 years old to apply for part-time internships. Full-time internship applicants are young adults who are passionate about making full-time ministry their career, but may not have much ministry experience.
Absolutely! However, you will be responsible for securing your own housing.
If you have a housing option near your assigned location (such as a relative or friend), then you are free to secure your own housing. If you need housing, the Life.Church team you are assigned to will assist you in finding housing during your internship, but it’s not guaranteed. Paid interns typically pay no more than $450 a month for housing.
Campus internships will require 40 hours a week during our full-time internships. Central internships will require a minimum of 25 hours a week and a maximum of 40. Throughout the application and interview process, you’ll need to discuss all scheduling questions or concerns you may have. Your team will do everything possible to work with you to make sure you have a schedule that works best for you.
Depending on your location, you will work four or five days during the week, and some evenings as needed. The weekends will involve serving at various worship experiences. Your coach will work with you to ensure the best use of your time. Applicants must be flexible with their time and ready for the excitement of LeadershipXP and the pace of Life.Church.
No, Life.Church will not provide health insurance to interns. As an intern, you have two options to consider when it comes to health insurance. You can stay on your parent’s health insurance plan (if applicable) or you can purchase your own plan through a private insurance company. You can talk to our Human Resources team and ask them for suggestions on purchasing your own health insurance plan if you are unsure about your options, but no health insurance coverage will be offered to interns through Life.Church.
