BREAKING THE MOLD
What do you think when someone says “internship”? Most of us think of a “go-fer” or the little guy working his way to a paid position. In GO Ministries we think of an “internship” as TRAINING THE NEXT GENERATION. We take the traditional “internship” and extend it into something much greater; we like to call it “EMPOWERMENT.”
Like the traditional internship, GO Ministries interns will get their hands dirty. But isn’t that what we all want to do?! Because the scope of our ministry is so large (literally worldwide), there is no shortage of opportunity for interns to use their gifts and talents. And that’s THE HEART of what the internship is built upon: giving the interns a place to DEVELOP their gifts and talents in a full-time, ministry environment.
“The GO Ministries internship is real life training. When I go out into ministry now, I know how to help my pastor. It comes down to being a servant. Getting hands on training throughout the year and putting it into practice — that’s what has grown me. What I’ve learned at GO has become a part of who I am and I will carry it with me for the rest of my life.”
MORE THAN JUST DOING
In order for there to be success in any area of life, there is one element that must be present: CHARACTER. This is where GO Ministries takes the internship to the next level. Without it, you can’t have lasting success.
We are not here to merely enhance talent and behavior, but as we ENHANCE BELIEF, talent and behavior will find their rightful place.
When joining GO Ministries, each intern is involved in a number of different biblical courses designed to develop the WHOLE PERSON: spirit, soul, and body. Beyond this, interns can also choose from departments within GO Ministries to be involved with. After a year of building a strong foundation on the Word of God and the heart of the ministry, interns may branch out into more specific areas of ministry and training.
Applicants must be graduated from high school or have a GED and must be between the ages of 18 and 28.
“One of the biggest things I’ve learned at GO Ministries is that ministry is fun. Pastor Steve always says that if you’re not having fun in ministry to get out. Ministry is the heart of God in action. With GO, there’s never a dull moment and I believe that is how ministry should always look.”
“We are giving you a safe environment to grow in your God-given gifts, regardless of if you know what that gift might be. There is a place for you in this internship.”
Pastor Steve Munds

After a year of building a strong foundation on the Word of God and the heart of the ministry, interns may branch out into more specific areas of ministry and training:
The Media and Design department is the creative force behind GO Ministries. Media and Design interns will learn how to think outside the box to reach their generation through media and design without compromising the standard of the Word. A Media and Design intern will learn things such as graphic design, video production and editing, photography, event planning, website development, motion graphics, and more. The Media and Design department makes every video, poster, flyer, banner, promo, and designs the website for GO Ministries International.
For one year we will train you to be the actors, directors, and writers that God has called you to be. Theatrics interns are responsible for writing all of the dramas for the Revival Tour Team. They also work closely with the Media and Design Department to write and act in all of our videos. On top of this, they write, cast, direct, and act in two full length theatrical productions each year. But the greatest lesson you will learn in the Theatrics department is how to be led by the Spirit on and off stage.
The Office Internship is a crucial part of GO Ministries International. Though behind the scenes, this area of ministry is what keeps us going. It is often known as the nervous system of the ministry. The office intern will learn everything needed to know in the administrative part of ministry, including: finances, management, working with other ministries and ministers, scheduling, and desktop publishing.
The Office internship is anointed to support, with excellence and efficiency, each department of the ministry by providing professional, yet personable, communication and administration.
The Ministry Team travels around the world ministering to a broad base of people groups in different types of events. When entering the Ministry Team, interns have a choice of being a part of three areas of ministry:
The purpose of the Drama Team is to set people free with funny, relatable dramas, as well as to perform the Truth before people’s eyes through impacting human videos. A drama intern has the amazing opportunity to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a relevant way to a hungry generation!
Production interns are expected to set up, tear down, and operate the sound, video and lighting system with the aid of other interns. They will learn the practical knowledge of this trade, as well as how to envision and create a Spirit-led atmosphere for music and drama.
