Welcome to the Mosaic Internship Program.

We are delighted that you’ve chosen to dedicate your time to learning and discovering what God has for your future in ministry. The goal of this internship is to equip you as a leader to serve God’s church so you can discover the calling God has placed on your life.

Throughout your year as an intern, you can expect to gain the practical tools necessary for ministry as well as grow in character, grow in your knowledge of God’s Word, develop relationships and be challenged. Above all else, you can expect to grow in your relationship with the Lord.

The pastors, staff and volunteers desire to see you thrive and succeed as you utilize your God-given gifts for the church. We look forward to starting this exciting new season of ministry with you.

Sincerely,

Jimmy Hoang

MOSAIC CHURCH MISSION

TO DEMONSTRATE OUR PASSION FOR GOD AND HIS PASSION FOR PEOPLE.

In order for Mosaic Church to fulfill its mission, it is vital that we have faithful and godly leaders. Therefore, Mosaic has implemented within the church work environment a principle called the 6 C’s.

The 6 C’s stand for (1) Character, (2) Commitment, (3) Chemistry, (4) Calling, (5) Competency and (6) Capacity.

Mosaic leadership strives for each of the 6 C’s to be developed within every staff member, volunteer and intern. The thought process behind these is that when all six of the C’s are fully developed and displayed within a person, the work environment functions smoothly between all individuals and the quality of work is much higher. Throughout this internship, the 6 C’s will be explained and discussed thoroughly.

This will be the barometer in which we measure growth.
