»RYM Church Internship Program (Male & Female)

RYM & Partnering Churches
Cities across the U.S.

The purpose of the RYM Church Internship Program is to affirm, train, and equip men and women in the legitimacy and merits of long-term ministry to youth and families. RYM matches candidates with partnering local churches to serve full time for two years reaching and equipping middle and high school students for Christ. While serving in the church, each intern will gain practical training and experience, a sound biblical and theological education, and learn a coherent philosophy of ministry. Through partnerships with Covenant Theological Seminary and Reformed Theological Seminary RYM Church Interns receive significantly reduced tuition rates. The RYM Church Internship is an apprenticeship that will benefit both the local church and the intern in their present and future ministries. Start strong - visit the RYM Internships page or contact Michael Hall, RYM Training and Church Internship Coordinator, with your questions or to apply.
