Internships – a year of Discovery and Service

An Exodus Internship is a one year programme, for graduates or school leavers with a local Exodus staff member.

2022/23 Internship applications will open in May

Exodus Internships can be full-time or occasionally part-time and are a great way to develop gifts, learn ministry skills, understand disciple making to make a difference locally and globally.

  • Interns Together Conference Days (3 during year).
  • I.C.E. (Exodus intern training days)
  • Church placement (2-3 hours per week) in a local fellowship.
