The question is never about ‘what do I get?’, rather more about ‘who am I becoming?’. We believe that everyone is called by God to have an impact in this world. We have created our Citipointe Internship to help you discover and confirm God’s calling for your life, while simultaneously preparing you for YOUR NEXT, whatever that might be. You may feel called to ministry, or media, or to be a great parent or to politics; an Internship at Citipointe will equip, train, challenge and empower you to take hold of all God has for your life. As you intentionally set aside a year and sow the raw materials of calling, study and training, we know that you will reap a world-changing, God-glorifying destiny.

We are more committed than ever to see men and women rise up to be all God has called them to be. We know that by doing the Citipointe Internship you will be positioned to unmistakably influence your world for good and for God.

Year of Internship: 2018

In 2018, I stepped unknowingly into a year that would radically change my whole life. I faced struggles, celebrated triumphs, was stretched and challenged but in the end, graduated from the Citipointe Internship with a crystal clear vision of who and where God was calling me to NEXT! Now, as I step into a new season of study, I am ready, called, purposed, confident, determined and transformed thanks to God and the Citipointe Internship Academy.

I can’t imagine where I’d be without the Internship! It set me up for my future and I constantly see the fruit of it in my everyday life.

Year of Internship: 2021

Current position: Videographer & Photographer at Citipointe Church Brisbane and Redcliffe

2021 was my year for leadership breakthrough. I was destined and determined to see God move in a greater measure in me and through me. Citipointe Internship was the perfect avenue that I would see open up a WORLD of possibility in my personal & professional life.

Internship has prepared me to work & serve in a substantially higher capacity than ever before - it pushed me to grow & serve more effectively in not only my local Church but the greater Citipointe Brisbane region. Though there were struggles, hardship & unique complications along the way, the Internship provided practical ways to develop our capacity whilst also teaching us to pray bigger, better & stronger prayers.

Now, I graduated with purpose, vision, confidence, a greater theological understanding of the Bible, stronger practical methods for prayer and a determination burning in me to see more of Heaven on Earth, and more of Earth go to Heaven.

Year of Internship: 2018

Current position: Assistant to Operations Pastor and Events Administrator Assistant, Citipointe Church Brisbane

Moving over from New Zealand to do the Internship was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The course allowed me to develop my creative and administrative skills, as well as bringing me into a closer relationship with God. The year was full of stretching and growing both mentally and spiritually, and I am now a stronger, more confident person because of it.

Best decision ever!

Do I need a laptop or tablet?

A lot of the practical components and portfolios an Intern will be outworking throughout their Internship will require them to have a laptop and/or tablet as much of what happens within Citipointe Church is organised through Google Docs, Spreadsheets, Elvanto, Basecamp and any other systems that we use to run the world. Therefore, each Intern is required to have some form of device (laptop or tablet) to use throughout the duration of the course. If this is totally not possible in a given case, we are happy to discuss other arrangements.

What are the standards that participants must abide by?

Being a Citipointe Intern is an honour and a privilege. For a whole year you will be part of the behind-the-scenes action of one of Australia’s great churches. With this privilege comes a certain level of responsibility. Part of upholding this responsibility is agreeing to our Citipointe Church Heartbeat Document and other legislative documents.

Can I do my practical work back in my local church?

Of course! You will participate in class at one of the Citipointe locations near you, and can outwork the practical components of the course back through your local church. For further information please contact internship@citipointechurch.com.

How long is the course?

The Citipointe Internship is a 1 year course running in 4 x 10 week Terms. We have two intakes each year; one in January (1st Semester) and one in June/July (2nd Semester).

We exist to unmistakably influence the world for good and for God.

The Citipointe Internship is a Ministry of Citipointe Church.
