Internships

It’s all about becoming God’s best version of you, doing what you were created to do, and knowing the next steps to get there.

LeadershipXP (LXP) is an internship program, and then some. We focus on developing each intern spiritually, personally, and professionally.

You will have the opportunity to:

Have a personal coach who is specifically devoted to pouring wisdom into your life and building you up throughout the entire internship.

Be part of a forward-thinking, risk-taking, sold-out ministry that is making a lasting difference by leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Take part in learning and developmental opportunities that include book discussions, learning sessions, types and events for Life.Church staff.

Develop under some of the best leaders in ministry and work in a team environment that encourages personal and professional growth.

Make personal connections and build peer group relationships with other interns.

Be equipped with the tools and resources you need to effectively serve and contribute to your team.

    Full-time Central internships are four months long. The start dates are January, May, and September.

    Part-time internships are nine to 12 weeks long (June-August). The part-time internship allows all interns the opportunity to have two to three weekday nights off and some weekends if applicable.

  • Will I be on my own?

    Each intern is matched with a coach. This coach is a Life.Church staff member who is specifically devoted to pouring wisdom into your life and building you up throughout the entire internship. As an intern, you will serve as part of your coach’s staff team. This team will be a major part of your day-to-day development in the LXP program.

  • Are there age limits?

    We invite anyone who is at least 18 years old to apply for part-time internships. Full-time internship applicants are young adults who are passionate about making full-time ministry their career, but may not have much ministry experience.

  • I’m married—am I still eligible?

    Absolutely! However, you will be responsible for securing your own housing.

  • Where will I live?

    If you have a housing option near your assigned location (such as a relative or friend), then you are free to secure your own housing. If you need housing, the Life.Church team you are assigned to will assist you in finding housing during your internship, but it’s not guaranteed. Paid interns typically pay no more than $450 a month for housing.

  • How many hours per week are expected?

    Campus internships will require 40 hours a week during our full-time internships. Central internships will require a minimum of 25 hours a week and a maximum of 40. Throughout the application and interview process, you’ll need to discuss all scheduling questions or concerns you may have. Your team will do everything possible to work with you to make sure you have a schedule that works best for you.

  • What does a typical week look like?

    Depending on your location, you will work four or five days during the week, and some evenings as needed. The weekends will involve serving at various worship experiences. Your coach will work with you to ensure the best use of your time. Applicants must be flexible with their time and ready for the excitement of LeadershipXP and the pace of Life.Church.

  • Will Life.Church provide health insurance?

    No, Life.Church will not provide health insurance to interns. As an intern, you have two options to consider when it comes to health insurance. You can stay on your parent’s health insurance plan (if applicable) or you can purchase your own plan through a private insurance company. You can talk to our Human Resources team and ask them for suggestions on purchasing your own health insurance plan if you are unsure about your options, but no health insurance coverage will be offered to interns through Life.Church.

  • Do I need a personal vehicle?

    Yes. At this time, we cannot provide transportation to and from your assigned location. You are responsible for maintaining adequate insurance on your personal vehicle and having a current driver’s license.

  • Will I get a job at Life.Church after I graduate from LeadershipXP?

    Full-time interns could have the opportunity to interview for staff roles after the duration of their internship.

  • Where will my internship be?

    LeadershipXP Campus internships are available at most of our locations across the United States. Central internships will generally be located at our Central Offices in Edmond, OK.
