3ONE8 Internship Programme

Training for the Kingdom, not just our church.

An internship at Riverside Community Church is an opportunity where a person who desires to experience full time ministry will be exposed to the practical side of full time ministry as well as exposure to the heart and theology of Kingdom work. An intern will receive hands-on ministry experience and an opportunity to maximize their leadership potential. The intern will receive personal development, as well as have opportunities to witness lives being transformed through the power of the Gospel. This internship program is designed to give participants ministry experience, as well as a glimpse into the life of someone in full time ministry.
