This is a 10-month program to provide a full time, intensive training opportunity for young people who are pursuing ministry.
The Mountain View School of Ministry’s Elijah Program is set up for emerging spiritual leaders. Our goal is to call out, train, equip and release spiritual leaders for the precise purpose of planting effective, life-giving churches around the world. The track choice depends upon your passion, your spiritual gifts, your call and your experience. Your internship will be personalized and your resources and practical hands-on experience will be set according to the call upon your life.
This is a comprehensive mentoring and training program that will include formal training at the School of Ministry as well as substantial practical hands-on ministry responsibilities. Each intern will be exposed to many facets of ministry from evangelism and discipleship to leadership and serving. You will be involved in teaching, evangelism, discipleship, leading, ministering, praying, shepherding, team-building, serving and experiencing a missions trip. The primary focus of the internship program is to develop your heart, passion and desire to give God glory. Our desire is to increase your passion for the lost and your leadership gifts for ministry. Learning wisdom, people skills, balance, maturity, a global mindset and a servant spirit are indispensable!
The Bible tells us that the harvest is ripe. Our hope and prayer is that the Elijah Program will be instrumental in equipping and deploying spiritual leaders with a heart and passion for God and for the harvest.
