Fresh Life Summer Internship

Training and equipping leaders to step into their calling and develop the tools for ministry in the local church.


Here at Fresh Life our hearts, our souls, our minds, and our efforts are fixated on one thing: seeing God glorified and His kingdom built. His heartbeat is our war drum; it urges us on — further, deeper, with more passion, with more resolve.

This internship is focused on kingdom building, and that’s why this is not your average internship program. This is an intensive and fast-paced program designed to grow individuals in character, leadership, and clarity in their calling.

  • If you’re looking for an experience that will challenge you to execute in ministry (or any leadership) at a high level, this is the internship for you.

  • If you’re looking for an experience that will push your limits and build lasting relationships forged by stretching your limits, this is the internship for you.

  • If you’re looking for an experience that is the next step in God calling you to risk the ocean in your own life, this is the internship for you.

We are looking for the most committed, passionate, and faith-filled people (ages 18-25) to link shields with us and march forward to see those stranded in sin find life and liberty in Jesus Christ.

If you have creative or ministry skills and want to charge with us to take more ground for the Kingdom, then there is room for you at the table here!

If you are ready to answer the call and take the leap, to be wrung out for the gospel, to be stretched beyond your comfort zone, and to be used by God, we want you to apply!

What is the course work?

The internship week is mostly spent in the department you are interning with but each Monday will be spent together working on SEU coursework. This time is spent learning "Principled Leadership".

Is there housing available?

We do not have intern housing. Each intern is asked to do the research in the Flathead Valley to find and arrange their own housing. Resources like Craigslist, AirBnb, and VRBO are great for searching the area. The Flathead Valley is a tourist destination so we recommend looking into vacation rentals as an option. Areas to consider: Kalispell, Whitefish, Bigfork, Evergreen, Somers, and Lakeside.

Occasionally, members of Fresh Life Church will have housing options (with and without rent). Those housing opportunities are on a case by case basis to help ensure the right fit for both parties. If you are accepted into the program, please let the intern team know right away if you need housing and we will help as much as we can, but it is ultimately up to each intern to find their own housing.

Each applicant is responsible for ensuring their work eligibility in the USA. Documentation of the proper work VISA will be required prior to acceptance into the internship program.

Will I need transportation?

It is highly recommended that interns have a vehicle, unless they are in walking distance of the church (Downtown Kalispell). Kalispell does not have a well established public transportation system.

Can I get a job during the internship?

Our interns do not work during the duration of their internship. This is a great way to ensure that our interns can participate in everything during that season, rest well, and get a fuller picture as to what working in full time ministry at Fresh Life is really like.

Each intern will fundraise, save, and/or align support so that they can be in the internship without worrying about their finances. Each intern's financial goal will look different depending on their monthly expenses. We encourage you to consider what one months of expenses is currently, multiply it by 3, and then set that as your goal. Expenses to consider: rent, loans, car insurance, gas, groceries, eating out, extracurricular purchases, coffee, etc.

All church wide events are mandatory and are considered “all hands on deck”. This includes before, during, and after an event. Events that include traveling are not guaranteed for interns.

Will I be required to fast?

A huge part of working in ministry is fasting and praying. We will challenge our interns to push themselves both spiritually and physically through opportunities like times of fasting.

What does your fitness program look like?

We fight for health in all areas of life at Fresh Life and will challenge our interns to do the same. With the exception of travel weeks, our interns will work out every Thursday at 7:30am.
