Internship and Ordination


Internships at Stonebriar Community Church are a ministry training program that contributes to the spiritual, personal, and professional development of men and women as ministry leaders. The internship program uses the assets and environment of the church to create a unique learning experience. Our program complements formal, academic training through personal accountability, evaluation, guided part-time ministry experience, and group interaction. Internships generally run from after Labor Day in September through the end of April.

NOTICE: Internships are now full for the 2017-2018 academic year. 


Qualifications for the Internship Program

  • You must be born-again and currently involved in professional ministry training at an academic institution.
  • You must become a regular attendee or member of Stonebriar 
  • You must meet Stonebriar’s requirements for employment as a ministry employee as outlined in the Stonebriar Employee Handbook (to be completed during the formal application for the internship-staff position).

Ordination at Stonebriar is available for men who have graduated from an accredited seminary, have a previous or current connection to SCC (such as an SCC intern, or member/regular attender, or missionary), and are heading into or currently involved in vocational ministry.  The ordination process begins in November, and involves an interview and written and oral examinations to confirm the servant’s ministry calling and capacity. The ordination ceremony takes place in the spring, during a Sunday morning, sometime between mid-April and early May. At that time, candidates are officially ordained and receive certification. 


Qualifications for the Ordination Program

  • You must be a born-again male graduate of an accredited seminary (minimum Master’s level).
  • You must have a previous or current connection with Stonebriar Community Church.
  • You must be headed into or currently involved in vocational ministry.
  • You must give evidence in the initial ordination interview of ministry calling.
