The purpose of the Internship Program is to:

  • Test the waters –  This allows interns the ability to see if this is a good fit before they start their career.
  • Gain on hand experience – It allows the opportunity for interns to gain experience in their degree and receive a recommendation letter upon completion.


We are excited to introduce our innovative 2020 Summer Internship Program for Public Relations and Media Ministry. Let’s welcome aboard our interns and assistant coordinator.
