Women's Ministry Internship is a 12-week intensive training program for the women of CSPC. The goal of the internship is to equip leaders in our church to fulfill their God-given calling. Interns work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm for the duration of the program. They receive in-depth teaching on a variety of topics including, but not limited to, the meta narrative of scripture, theology, counseling, world and local missions, and prayer. Teaching is done through readings, videos, guest speakers and conversation with Suzanne and Rebekah. Interns need to be open to being poured into by Suzanne and Rebekah and willing to learn and listen to God's call in their life. Each day starts with quiet time with the Lord but looks different as the day goes on. Interns also attend an overnight retreat at the conclusion of the program.
Other studies and groups meet in homes. Call for more information or if you’d like to start a group. We’ll provide training, support, materials, and lots of love!
