GCI Intern Program
GCI offers a 2.5-year-long discipleship experience. Interns study at Grace Communion Seminary or at another seminary. They are embeded in a GCI congregation where they serve in youth ministry, college ministry, or in community outreach. While being equipped in practical ministry, interns engage in vocational exploration with the help of GCI mentors and life-coaches. For details, click here and watch this video:
