SEND Ministries staff internships are primarily designed to help young adults mature in their faith through training in leadership, ministry, and service. Internships are built around two basic components: Leadership and Ministry Formations and Leadership and Ministry Applications.

Leadership and Ministry Formations provide training and growth through intentional community, education (formal and informal teaching), simple church, Bible studies, reading assignments, and the practice of spiritual disciplines and mentoring.

Leadership and Ministry Applications give interns opportunities to put formative lessons into practice through service and ministry opportunities, intercession, work projects, leadership of SEND programs, direct ministry to program participants, and job functions specific to each intern position. Interns meet regularly with a job mentor who will provide teaching, advice, and direction specific to their job position and function.

The staff interns function as a team under the leadership and oversight of the SEND Ministries Program Facilitator. There are currently five core internship positions available:
