Ministry Internships

Tatiana Barrera, Fraternidad Cristiana de Guatemala

The Center for Faith and Learning partners with the Religion Division to offer funding for ministry-related internships for Seaver College students desiring to pursue a calling in religion/ministry. First preference for funding is given to Religion Division majors, minors and graduate students. This program allows students to test their vocational wings by participating in a ministry of the church under the direct supervision of a professional who works full-time in a church-based ministry. Pepperdine Religion professor David Lemley coordinates the intern program.


There are two initial steps to apply:

1) Complete the Application by the deadlines listed below.

2) Ask your on-site supervisor to fill out the Supervisor Information Form

You will be contacted by our office following these initial steps. If you have questions, please contact Stephanie Cupp or Steven Zhou.
