PVC Internship Program

Palm Valley Church exists to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. Since its launch in 2000, God has blessed and grown Palm Valley Church across the west valley with locations in Buckeye, Goodyear, and Online.

Who are PVC Internships Designed For?

PVC Internships are designed for leaders who believe God has called them to ministry. We encourage anyone above the age of 18 to apply.

Why is an internship at Palm Valley Church an incredible opportunity?

Palm Valley Church interns will experience the way ministry happens at a large multi-site church. This experience, combined with the relationships developed with seasoned and proven ministry leaders, will prepare interns for future ministry.

What does an internship at Palm Valley Church look like?

    During the first phase of your internship you will learn about ministry in general. This includes being equipped in the vision of Palm Valley Church and living out your ministry’s mission by spending time serving as a volunteer.

  • TEAM

    The second phase of your internship will focus on working in a team environment and learning how a strong team is the most effective way to accomplish ministry. During this phase, you will be given opportunities to grow in your leadership skills under the guidance of a strong mentor.

  • LEAD

    The third phase of your internship will provide the opportunity for you to lead a team, program, or event within the area of your internship. In this phase, you will be responsible for sharing the vision, equipping others, and leading people both physically and spiritually.

Other activities: All interns will be included in staff-wide team meetings, cross ministry break-out sessions with key leaders, and internship-wide weekly meetings designed for fellowship and team-building.
