Pastoral Internship


Pastoral Internship

We desire to equip, train, and send men to plant and pastor churches in the Arabian Peninsula and this region of the world. At Redeemer and our church-based Gulf Training Center, we offer -

Pastoral and Leadership Training Programs: Full courses in Bible, theology, preaching, and pastoral ministry. 1-4 years depending on previous study and ultimate ministry goals. Available on evenings and weekends for those with regular full-time employment.

Internships: As part of our training programs (above) we offer a limited number of full-time pastoral internships and ministry-specific internships (e.g. Student Ministry Internship or Worship Ministry Internship). These internships supplement classroom study with practical ministry engagement and mentoring for a holistic training experience.

Residencies: For those who have already completed seminary training and desire to enter into church ministry in this region, we offer residencies of about one year to give practical experience in multi-cultural church ministry in this region.

To request an application or further information about any of these programs, please complete the application form. All programs begin each year at the end of August. We welcome applicants from around the world with a range of languages and cultures. However, to complete the requirements, all applicants must be able to read and write in English.

For full-time interns and residents, we are able to help you secure a visa for the time you are here. Our church is not able to provide a salary or stipend. Therefore, interns and residents are asked to raise the support necessary to provide for their housing, insurance, and other expenses during their time of training with us.
