Northpark Worship internship is a program designed to introduce high school, college or seminary students to worship ministry in the context of the local church. A typical week may include worship staff meeting, strategic planning sessions, mentor meetings, reading discussions as well as serving as a worship leader in one of our corporate worship gatherings. It is an unpaid position where interns gain practical ministry experience and theological training. Interns work appropriately alongside with one of our worship leaders in a variety of different ministry contexts (vocal, instrumental, technical and creativity). Our hope is that our interns will be challenged, trained and equipped in four main areas:
Theology of Worship
Our primary question here is this: What does the Bible say about worship? Through study of Scripture, and reading and discussing additional resources, we hope to assemble a healthy theology of worship.
Philosophy of Worship Ministry
With our theology of worship as our foundation, we will examine how “what” we believe about worship works out in “how” we plan our worship gatherings.
God has called all Christians to be disciples who make disciples. In addition to that, pastors are to watching out for leaders to train. Becoming wise and equipped in both of these areas is important for aspiring worship leaders. Our desire is to read and discuss material that will strengthen us in both of these categories.
Worship Leadership/Musical Skill
In leading, learning and observing, we hope to help our interns become more skillful worship leaders, and musicians who are ready to serve the local church most effectively.
