Leadership Development

Internship, Residency, and Church Planting Residency Program

Our leadership development program provides opportunities for talented, humble, high character people to get hands-on ministry experience. They don’t make us coffee, but instead are given ownership to help lead at all levels in our churches. We have three full-time development tracks that last 2-3 years: Internships, Residencies, and Church Planting Residencies.


We look to develop through providing real ministry reps and responsibility. You will be teaching, leading, connecting with people, writing and actually doing things that matter.


We want to equip you to think rightly and deeply about God. To be a disciple is to be a “learner” and will help develop you through encouraging seminary and conferences.


A pastor will oversee your ministry responsibility, give you feedback, and help you take next steps in regards to your personal holiness and humility.

Impact Others

You will have a chance to make an eternal impact in the lives of others, making and maturing disciples in the church and throughout the city.

Have Fun!

We have a culture of celebration, joy and fun. We dance as a staff team to 90’s rap, do push ups together, and spend lots of time telling stories of how God is at work!

Get Paid

Citylight churches help cover healthcare expenses and seminary tuition for developing leaders. You will raise support for your ministry with guidance from a pastor.

If you are interested in becoming an intern, contact a Citylight Family church and inquire about individual application processes and availability.
