Undergraduate Studies Student Internships

The Internship Philosophy
Jesus had a strategy for developing His followers into individuals who would become servant leaders in fulfilling His mission. Jesus called them to Himself, taught them, modeled a lifestyle which He wanted them to follow, cared for them, and held them accountable. He also involved them in ministry, which was used as a learning experience for them. The key to Jesus’ effectiveness and a lesson for us in developing the next generation of servant leaders is spending time, sharing life, and intentionally using all of life as an opportunity to both learn and to reflect.

LCU’s philosophy of internships follows this holistic model, established by Jesus and used by Paul for training Timothy and others for ministry (Ephesians 4:11-16; 2 Timothy 2:1-2). The Internship Program at Lincoln Christian University has been developed to be an integral part of the student's training for ministry. It requires a strong partnership between the University and the internship sites to provide meaningful internship experiences, which include an experienced Field Mentor who can help the student with his/her integration of theology and practice of ministry. LCU believes that students need an opportunity to experience ministry, to reflect upon that ministry experience with a wise mentor, to articulate insights which have been gained, and to plan for future ministry utilizing the newly learned insights.
