It is our desire for everyone who is interested in the positions to be given the opportunity. However, we recognize there are a limited number of summer intern positions that we can offer, and each year we are forced to choose between any number of excellent candidates.

Therefore, in choosing between applicants, over and above the listed qualifications, the following criteria will be considered in order of importance:

  • Priority will be given to applicants that currently and regularly attend Northside Community Church
  • Priority will be given to applicants that have fewer perceived opportunities to participate in the internship in the future
  • Priority will be given to applicants who have never been a summer intern at Northside Community Church before


Please remember all positions are subject to receiving funding.
