Internship Testimonies

"Through this internship, God has shown me that when I first rely on Him I can then learn well, plan well, and serve well. I've grown more in my resting in my identity in Christ, which has steered me away from performing for others’ acceptance. I’ve begun to do all things for the Lord’s glory and not my own! Not only that, but the friendships that have formed during my internship have brought joy into my life and connected me with those I never expected to be connected with!"

Jaelyn Hamilton, 20, Conway, AR
NLC College Intern

"During my time in the internship, I was able to see God use the different tools and resources He has given us to advance His Kingdom forward. Graphics are a huge tool we can use to help someone understand a Sunday message better, remind them of prayer meetings, get people excited about being a part of God's family, etc. God taught me about the importance of building His Kingdom by loving others and working together to carry out a vision. New Life Church wouldn't be where it is today if it wasn't for the strong teams that make it up, each holding up multiple pillars for every area in the ministry. It made me appreciate so much more the amazing work God is doing, and as I travel back to California, my goal is to carry parts of this culture with me—not just to help my community grow, but to continue to help me grow as well."

"What God has taught me through this summer internship was to have more confidence in my walk/relationship with the Lord and just to have confidence in general! I also learned how to serve the church in the best way! I loved every second of this summer, from doing flood relief with the team to Friday morning workouts! I love that I get to call this church my home now!"

What is the purpose of the NLC internship?

NLC Internship exists to serve and further the vision of New Life Church while developing leaders and followers of Christ.

Who is the internship for?

NLC Internship is for college-age men and women who consider NLC Conway to be their home church.

How long does the internship last?

Summer semester will be 10 weeks. Fall and spring semesters will be 13-14 weeks. See more info in Details section.

Why is the summer internship more of a time commitment than the fall or spring?

The larger time commitment in the summer semester will allow our staff to spend more time focused solely on growing and developing the intern class. We hope to take advantage of the flexibility in a summer schedule to give interns an experience that will facilitate the maximum amount of personal growth as they serve the church.

In what ways can I expect to grow and be developed as an NLC intern?

You will grow through serving, Biblical teachings, and coaching in one-on-one and group settings. Interns will be given serve opportunities within New Life and receive weekly teachings and coaching from NLC staff.

What does a typical week look like for an NLC intern?

Every week interns will spend the majority of their time serving with their coach in their assigned department. They will also spend time serving with their intern class during weekend services and learning from New Life pastors and staff.  

Can I get credit for the internship?

Possibly. Interns will need to explore if NLC Internship fulfills expectations and requirements by their institution, department, and advisor. It will be the intern’s responsibility to fulfill those requirements and any paperwork needed.
