Ministry Apprenticeship Program


What is the Ministry Apprenticeship Program?

The Ministry Apprenticeship Program (MAP) is an eight-month program specifically designed for students enrolled in Columbia Bible College (Columbia) who are in the third or fourth year of their full-time undergraduate studies and seeking practicum hours/ministry experience.

MAP combines theological education with practical ministry experience. Courses include: Theology of the Church, Homiletics, Ministry Essentials, and Spiritual Formation in Ministry. Each course is fully accredited through Columbia and, while the coursework provides a solid theological foundation, the practicum hours will allow students to apply what they have learned in a ministry setting.

Why should I apply for the Ministry Apprenticeship?

The goal of MAP is to help develop young adult leaders as they prepare for vocational ministry. The classes as well as the ministry practicum take place at Northview Community Church’s Downes Road campus. MAP offers a lively and fun learning environment where Columbia students are encouraged to ask questions, dig deep into scripture, and consider their own gifts and interests in light of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19). Northview, through God’s blessings and provisions, is uniquely equipped to engage students through a variety of robust ministries and theological resources as well as through the expertise, experience, and passions of its staff and pastors.

In our desire to help students with the costs associated with schooling, all required texts and books for the classes taught in the Ministry Apprenticeship Program are provided at no charge. Additionally, the ministry exposure trip is fully paid for by Northview. Finally, all Columbia students who are accepted into MAP are eligible for the Northview Ministry Scholarship.

Leadership Development

At Northview our mission is to make disciples through the multiplication of healthy local churches. Northview longs to see people mature and increase in their love of God, His Word, and His world. In order to prepare the next generation of church leaders, we are developing a Leadership Development pipeline that will give those interested in pursuing vocational ministry an opportunity to participate within the church to develop their skills and help them discern where the Lord is calling them.

Over the last decade, this mission began with our Intern Program. Since 2010, we have been providing undergraduate students with an opportunity to spend a year investing in the local church. In the last five years, we launched our Master of Divinity program – Immerse – through partnerships with Northwest Baptist Seminary and MB Seminary. We have recently graduated our first students and currently have 10 students working at within Northview to complete their education in a ministry-based context. This year we are looking forward to opening our Church Planting Residency to offer those with a heart for church planting the training and resources they need to enter the field.

Our programs exist to prepare Christians for a lifetime of discipleship in the local church, through hands-on ministry experience and specific training orientated towards their ministry goals.

We provide a place where developing leaders are exposed to a variety of ministries within the church, are mentored by our pastors, develop a solid theological base, and develop the gifts that God has given them.

Our Leadership Pipeline has three tiers, following the idea of the
structure of many sports programs using the A, AA, AAA structure.


Known by most as the “Internship Program”, we are transitioning the program to be a Ministry Apprenticeship. This past year we have had the opportunity to remodel the Intern Program as our vision for Leadership Development has become more defined. There will be a number of ways to get involved in order to develop your ministry skills and gain practical experience within a ministry context. It will be open to those interested in pursuing vocational ministry, and those who are curious about what vocational ministry looks like.

The Ministry Apprenticeship will be an unpaid apprenticeship that will focus on developing your theological foundation and application within the local church context. Our desire through this program is to develop our young adult leaders. This program is ideal for those in their third or fourth year of an undergraduate degree who have an interest in pursuing vocational ministry, are actively serving within the local church, and wanting to develop their leadership abilities.

Immerse is a Master of Divinity program through Northwest Baptist Seminary and in conjunction with Mennonite Brethren Seminary that focuses on context-based learning. The context of ministry (Northview Community Church) provides the environment for learning rather than the traditional classroom. This program has been developed in such a way that students will develop the convictional knowledge, skillful competence, and Christ-like character required to be life-long learners and servant-leaders for the Body of Christ. With three mentors and the goal of ‘observed mastery’, students will be equipped for ministry through ‘competency-based education’.

Ideal Candidate: A male or female university graduate who is looking to complete a Master of Divinity degree in order to pursue a pastoral role within the church – either locally or globally.

Each year, Northview accepts 4-6 leaders into the residency program. These cohorts meet on Tuesday-Thursdays, 16-18 times over the course of the 10-month program. The curriculum is designed to set up those who are called to plant churches for success by giving them the tools and knowledge they need to establish a healthy local church. We see the Church Planting Residency (CPR) as a 10-month “boot camp” or “incubator” that will equip you as you start the church planting journey.

We aim to:

  • Help you discover the tools and skills you will need to establish a healthy church;
  • Offer you the wisdom and knowledge of those who have gone before you;
  • Sharpen your self-awareness and give you tools that will empower you to build a healthy ministry team around you; and
  • Be a springboard into the next 5 years as you establish your church plant.

Ideal Candidate: A man who has completed the Church Planters Assessment and has been affirmed by his sending church as a potential planter. The ideal candidate will have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical or Theological studies (MDiv preferred) and has 5-10 years of ministry experience. This leader will exhibit a teachable spirit, a clear calling to ministry, and a hunger to grow in the skills needed to successfully establish and lead a new ministry.

Intern Program

At Northview, our mission is to make disciples through the multiplication of healthy local churches. Northview longs to see people mature and increase in their love for God, His Word, and His world. The internship program is an important part of this mission.

The Internship Program is primarily designed to provide the opportunity for each intern to discern whether or not they are called to serve the local church in full-time vocational ministry. It’s a place to put education into practice and a safe environment to grow through successes and failures.

We provide a place where interns are exposed to a variety of ministries within the church, are mentored by a pastor, develop a solid theological base, and develop the gifts that God has given them.

The program runs for 10 months, starting in September; and is a 40-hour a week position. There are no costs associated with the program.

The ideal candidate for our program is a senior college student or recent graduate looking for hands on ministry and theological classes. They should be longing to grow deeper in their faith, willing to be stretched personally, seeking to develop in their theological acumen and leadership gifting, wanting a deeper understanding of church ministry, and desiring to be equipped for future ministry.

We believe that our program is ideal for those looking to flesh out the education they have received with real-life church experience before going into full-time ministry or pursuing further education. It may also be ideal for people who are discerning their call to work in full-time ministry or those who are looking to pursue ministry in the future. Become involved for a year and see how God leads in and through that experience!

We are in the process of revamping our program! Please check back in the New Year for updates.
