At Northview, we believe in helping to train people for ministry.
Interns participate in a structured program that exposes young leaders to practical church ministry in almost every area of the church and theological training.
The goal is to provide a place to gain experience, be exposed to a variety of ministries in the church, mentor under one of our pastors, develop a solid theological base, and develop the gifts that God has given. Internships are 10-12 months long and are paid positions of 40 hours a week.
Who Can Apply?
The ideal candidate for our program is a Bible College graduate who is looking for some practical experience in a church. They should be longing to grow deeper in their faith, willing to be stretched personally, seeking to develop their ministry/leadership gifts, wanting a deeper understanding of church ministry and desiring to be equipped for future ministry.
We believe that our program is ideal for a grad that is looking to flesh out the education they have received in a real-life church experience before going into full-time ministry or pursuing further education. It may also be ideal for people who are questioning their call to work in full-time ministry. Be involved for a year and see how God leads in and through that experience!
We are, however, open to people that have not yet finished their degree or are looking at pursuing ministry in the future. We desire to be flexible yet committed to what we believe God has called us to.
Please note: At this time we are only accepting Applications from candidates who are able to legally work in Canada.

Sean HildebrandYouth Intern
“This internship has been an incredible opportunity for me to experience vocational church ministry! The program provides ample opportunities to discover the various components of the a church and experience the different ministries that take place on a daily basis. Interns also have the great privilege of learning under phenomenal teachers and receive solid college-caliber theological teaching. Being an intern at Northview is something I consider as a great honour, privilege, and a true blessing.”
Erick PennerPrayer & Disipleship Intern
“Through the teaching, mentoring and practical church ministry responsibilities I have received in the Northview internship I have grown in substantial ways. To name three, my love for the church, my understanding of scripture and a conviction of the necessity of prayer in all I do. Life and ministry in a church has blossomed a Christ like maturity in a way that my time at Bible College never could. The internship experience has been priceless.”
Andrew GulevichHigh School Intern
"Over these past 10 months, I have had the opportunity to grow holistically by being poured into and pouring into others. Through growing in my understanding in our theology classes, to grasping some of the key elements of how to preach as I observed the weekly sermon review (where I and other pastors were kindly critiqued over what we could improve on), to actually teaching and preaching to middle and high school students, I have grown so much in my ability to share Christ with others.”
