Internship at Mosaic is a non-paid, volunteer program designed to help you know if and where God is calling you to vocational ministry by placing you in a ministry setting where, through experience, you will be able to identify, clarify and be equipped for your future involvement in and call to full-time vocational ministry.
As an intern, you will weekly attend a class taught by Mosaic Pastors and Ministry Directors, engage with scripture and other reading while also being discipled in the 6 C's: Character, Calling, Commitment, Chemistry, Competency and Capacity. You will also spend a minimum of 10-15 hours a week serving in a specific chosen area of ministry at Mosaic.
This is a one year commitment, with the start date beginning on January 15th.
At Mosaic, we believe strong Biblical leadership is vital to the health of a local church. According to Scripture, each local church is made of elders, deacons, & saints. If we follow Jesus, He has rescued our souls and restored our purpose, and according to scripture, that means that we are saints. And as saints, we are all called to do the work of the Gospel. Deacons are men and women appointed to serve in the local church to help equip the saints for the work of the Gospel. Deacons are men and women who can say “Follow Me as I follow Christ.” They are men and women who are actively learning as Disciples, living as Family, leading on Mission. (See 1 Timothy 3:8-13 for the Biblical qualifications of a deacon). A Deacon at Mosaic will either serve as a Missional Community Leader or in a leadership role on a Ministry Team. A Missional Community is a group of 12 to 18 adults who orient their lives around being on mission together to make the Gospel known among a shared network of relationships, neighborhood, or target group of people. They do this by developing intentional devotional and missional rhythms in their life together. Our Ministry Teams are divided into two categories. Those that serve our Gatherings, and those that support our Missional Communities.

Here at Mosaic, we take Leadership Development really seriously. The bible uses words like “Elder”, “Pastor”, and “Shepherd” to describe those who are in spiritual leadership over the church. Being an Elder/Pastor (we use those words interchangeably) is not about a title, or a task, or climbing some invisible church leadership ladder—it’s about shepherding the church. The Eldership Development process is not about how much knowledge we can cram into your head—but rather how much character we can build into in your heart and soul. And yet—part of being a good shepherd is being a good leader. Caring for the church includes protecting her by being able to handle Scripture well. So we do spend a great deal of time making sure that your beliefs line up with scripture. We want you to get to the end of your Eldership Development Process and realize that you know Scripture and doctrine better than you ever have before in your entire life. We want your relationship with God to be stronger than it ever has been before. We want you to understand Mosaic’s story better than you ever have before and we want your role in that story to be clearer than it ever has been before. We will push you because we love you and because we love the church and we want her to have the best shepherds we can give her. The Elder Development Process lasts for two years. Here are a few prerequisites for you before applying.
If you meet all of the above pre-requisites, please contact Phil Taylor to get things started.
