The Committee on Christian Education is now accepting applications for summer and yearlong internships from both seminary students and OPC congregations. Application deadline for both churches and seminarians is Monday, February 28.
The CCE's internship program offers a twelve-week summer or a yearlong internship to test a man's gifts and confirm his calling to the pastoral ministry. Summer interns are seminarians who are under the care of a presbytery while yearlong interns are seminary graduates who are working toward being licensed to preach by an OPC presbytery.
Congregations don't bear the sole financial burden for having an intern. The CCE offers financial assistance of up to $1,200 a month to help the church pay for a summer intern and up to $1,600 a month for a yearlong intern. The church, in turn, must finance at least a matching amount for the intern's salary.
The CCE's Subcommittee on Ministerial Training will consider the applications and intern requests. Seminarians and churches will be notified if they have been approved for the program.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Clawson or me at 215-830-0900.
