Oasis Internship is a catalyst for leadership growth! Partner to serve alongside staff, as we equip and empower the next generation of leaders to reach ‘unchurched’ people and lead them to become compassionate and mature followers of Jesus Christ.
Through the Oasis Internship Program, interns partner to serve alongside the staff of Oasis Church. Interns receive valuable hands on ministry training and experience from staff leaders and Pastors in a creative and diverse church, while participating in weekly discipleship and leadership development courses as interns are transformed through the power of faith in action.
