Leadership Development

Pastoral Apprentice

9 Months (Sept-May)
5-15 hours a week
Paid and Support-based

The Pastoral Apprentice program is a 9-month (September – May) journey designed for the nearly graduated or graduated college/university student (preferably in ministry studies, though exceptions can be made). This program offers a chance for the Apprentice to discern and investigate their spiritual gifts and calling in a safe environment. This program is highly experience-based and will require the Apprentice to take on a portfolio on their own. They will be charged with the oversight and execution of their ministry area, building into leaders and volunteers, casting vision and, have opportunities for preaching and teaching, as well as other pastoral responsibilities.

There will be times of investment into the Apprentice, through coaching through the rigours and challenges of pastoral ministry as well as constant feedback about their performance. 

You can expect to work between 5-15 hours a week and you will receive a wage for your time and efforts. If this sounds like you but you don’t fit the age demographic – apply anyway! We are flexible and open to where God could be leading you into a possible placement in this program. Before applying the applicant should have discerned a call to ministry, as well as have had some formal theological training. If you would like support in discerning this call please contact Pastor Alex Perello at alex@cascadegospelchapel.com
