"There is no better place to grow and develop your gifts and abilities than in an internship at Home Church. In the year that I spent as an intern I was stretched in my faith, given opportunities to unearth my passion for people, and taught what it means to be a servant-leader. If you are looking for a real, hands-on faith-filled adventure, this is for you!"
