We believe the best growth happens in the game, when you’re finding solutions to real-life problems and writing code that’s actually put to work. The Engineering Leadership Program, or ELP, is for junior-level software engineers looking to raise their skillset to become mid-level engineers.
We know you’re a different kind of engineer. You want to do more than build your skills and gain experience. You want your work to make a difference. The ELP is where your talents and passions could intersect. This program is designed to develop your engineering skills during an 18-month timeframe and give you the opportunity to work closely with the engineering teams creating digital products that impact tens of millions of people every single day.
We have a wide variety of roles available for engineers who are eager to gain experience while working on products that have a Kingdom impact. You’ll be led by an experienced engineer during your journey through the program. You’ll hone your craft daily by tackling challenging issues and collaborating with designers, project managers, and fellow engineers to find the best solutions.

Yes. ELP participants have full-time Life.Church employee status for the duration of the program.
The first term of the program lasts up to three months and the entire program can last as long as 18 months in four phases. Each participant's progress is evaluated after each phase to determine their best next steps.
Due to the intensive nature of the program, participants will need to complete the program in person at the Life.Church Central Office in Edmond, OK. The Life.Church Central Office is home to the Life.Church digital teams as well as YouVersion.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee full-time positions at Life.Church to ELP graduates, but we will evaluate graduates for any open roles.
We would prefer some coding experience, but we can coach you in coding and other engineering tasks. However, we can’t coach passion. You’ll need to bring that to the table yourself.
No. ELP is a full-time employment opportunity, not an internship, and you will not be able to receive college credit for participating in the program. However, Life.Church does offer full-time and part-time internships at our Central Office and at each of our physical locations.
