IES is all about helping people grow to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. To facilitate that we offer Internships as a ministry to those who are interested in growing in ministry. What does an internship look like? Each internship is unique to the needs and goals of the person doing. We have the ability to structure internships to facilitate academic development, personal ministry development, or even first-time work-life experiences.
IES Internships seek to develop ministers and leaders by supervised practical ministry experience, discipleship, and mentoring.

(Ephesians 4:11-13, NIV)
According to Paul’s letter to the church in Ephesus, one of our goals is to equip the people of God for ministry.

Our IES Internship motto is simple:
