Are you called to ministry? We want to help you!
Summit Ministry Apprenticeship (SMA) is an intensive, two-year program offering significant hands-on ministry experience, weekly training, and mentorship by seasoned church leadership. Our desire is to develop ministry leaders for the local church: men and women who have a passion for reaching this world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This is more than an internship. You’ll operate as a member of the Summit staff, receive training from national/international experts, and be given significant responsibility. A training environment has been created which will complement your theological education and enable you to climb new heights as you develop character, leadership, and ministry skills.
Summit is committed to training the next generation of pastors and church leaders through its ministry apprenticeship. Through this apprenticeship, you’ll be taught how to lead in a variety of roles within the church. Communication cohorts - under some of our top Pastors and Ministry Leaders - will fine tune your skills as effective preachers/teachers.
Pastoral development is the heart of our ministry. You will be involved with pastors and ministry leaders “up close and personally” as they function within the church. At the end of the program, you’ll possess the experience, insights, and skills necessary to successfully step into full-time vocational ministry, whether as a pastor, missionary or ministry director. There are no guaranteed positions at Summit but many of our staff positions are currently filled by our graduates.
So if you’re called to vocational ministry and want to be intentionally challenged in a gospel-saturated setting, please complete an interest form. Someone from the apprenticeship team will connect with you to hear more of your story and help discern if this is the right next step for you.
