Frequently Asked Questions
An Eikon internship is an opportunity for you to join our team, serve in our church, and use your skills. In turn, we help you develop those skills, develop as a person, and pour into you spiritually. We want to help you grow and develop while you serve the local church.
How long is the internship?
The internship starts August 1st, 2019 and ends July 31st, 2020.
What does a normal week look like?
Intern positions will require a time commitment of around 32 hours per week (Monday – Thursday), plus serving on Sundays. The weekly routine will vary depending on the Intern’s ministry area and the needs of the specific Intern position. However, all interns will have classes such as Leadership Development, Book discussions, 1-on-1 discipleship, and staff meetings as part of their weekly schedule.
Is this a paid internship?
The Eikon internship is not a paid internship.
Am I allowed to work an outside job?
Yes, interns are allowed to work an outside job. However, the internship must remain the priority. You will be required to be at the office certain hours each week, as well as helping with all Eikon events. For this reason, some interns prefer to raise support during their internship rather than working a job.
Will I be able to take any time off?
You are able to request time off as needed. We ask that you request time off at least 30 days in advance. In addition, all staff has time off the last week of the year.
Does Eikon provide housing?
We do not provide intern housing. It is up to each individual to find their own housing. Occasionally members of Eikon Church will house an intern during their internship. 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 internship, please let us know right away if you need housing and we will help as much as we can, but again it is up to each intern to find their own housing.
How can I get college credit?
Although we do not offer college credit, if your college or university offers Internship opportunities, we will work directly with your counselors and/or professors to help ensure you meet all the necessary requirements.
