Post Graduate Internship Program
Summit’s post graduate internship program offers graduates the unique opportunity to work in a church or ministry to gain practical vocational skills. Each graduate is given the chance to apply for an internship with one of our many ministry partners.
Upon acceptance into the program interns begin with three weeks of intense training at Summit. The cost of the program is $750.
