The Gateway Internship exists to spiritually, professionally, and relationally equip leaders within the local church. 

Our Internship Model

We have a 3-sided approach to engage people in an immersive ministry environment. The Gateway Internship is a place where you will receive:


Personal Mentorship

Weekly oversight meetings with Gateway staff create opportunities for personalized feedback so every intern can grow spiritually, professionally, and relationally. 


Leadership Training

Weekly classes and training from seasoned leaders will give interns tools to help equip them in every area of leadership. 

Hands-On Ministry Experience

Interns will work as part of the staff in all aspects of Gateway. By being a part of a new church plant, interns will gain valuable leadership skill in all aspects of local church ministry. Interns will apply for specific roles within the staff that are related with their gifts and passions.

Key Details

  • Living/Housing – Interns will be expected to acquire housing in the Sugar Land area
  • Weekly Time Expectation – Approximately 20 hours per week.
  • Employment/Work – Interns will have time for employment outside of their responsibilities at Gateway if they would like to work.
  • School Credit – School credit is available from certain institutions for those who are interested. We will partner with your school to help you meet the requirements.
  • Transportation – The majority of your responsibilities will require that you have a reliable form of transportation which makes a license and car mandatory for your internship.
