Our internships take young leaders into a deep dive of practical training and hands-on experience both in national ministry and on the mission field. Throughout our internships, The Awakening interns are offered opportunities to serve in a variety of ways alongside IPHC leaders and missionaries, they are consistently poured into by our staff, and they get to experience first-hand what God is doing in this generation and around the world. Our interns our those who feel called to ministry. Our interns are leaders. Our interns are world changers who are being discipled to disciple more world changers!
The Summer Internship is designed to disciple, challenge, and encourage young adults to step out of their comfort zones and into their God-given callings. The two-month intensive program falls between the months of June and August and provides interns the opportunity to glean from various IPHC missionaries, ministry directors, and bishops during strategically scheduled interactive sessions. Interns can expect to have a packed summer spent traveling to three different countries and ministering in a variety of ways, all while being poured into by The Awakening staff.

“Being part of The Awakening Summer Internship was a remarkable time for me. I didn’t know what to expect at the beginning, but through it, God taught me His love and power in the everyday. During my internship I got to meet my sisters and brothers in Europe and Guatemala who are part of the IPHC, and God, once again, showed me how good He is. Even now, there is fruit from those two months that I invested and The Awakening invested in me. My confidence took a huge step ahead and I know that God has no limits and His power goes beyond all measure.”
-Adrian Perez, Summer Intern, 2017
The Traditional Internship is currently offered to students attending or living in close proximity to Emmanuel College and Southwestern Christian University. Traditional interns are students who are in love with Jesus and desire to be intentionally poured into during their college years. Each semester, interns are provided ministry training and learning opportunities from various ministry leaders and are given opportunities to minister at different events and trips, all under a focus of one-on-one discipleship.
