Are you curious as to what God’s plan is for your life?

The statement “God has a plan for your life” is a common expression in Christian community but what does that look like for you?  What are the desires, hopes and dreams that God has placed in your heart?  Perhaps you have a clear understanding of where you want to go in life and what you would like to achieve.  Or perhaps you are still on the journey of discovering the life of significance and purpose that God has for you.

LIFESOURCE INTERNSHIP EXISTS TO EQUIP PEOPLE
FOR A LIFE OF INFLUENCE

Whatever your plan may be, or even if you are still thinking about which direction to head in, the foundation of your success lies in the quality of your preparation.  LifeSource Internships exists to equip people for a life of influence by establishing in your heart and mind the timeless principles of leadership that are contained within the word of God.

At LifeSource we understand the need for preparation.  We understand that God wants to give YOU significant influence in your church, influence in your world and influence in your chosen career path.  In the bible we see that before significant influence is achieved there is the process of preparation.  Preparation that develops in you resilience, perseverance and determination.  Qualities that will assist you in every career path.  At LifeSource we understand that serving God is much more than simply working at a church, it is using the skills God has given you to further His Kingdom.  The leadership techniques you will learn are directly transferable to virtually any field of expertise.  Whatever area of influence you are seeking.  LifeSource Internships will prepare you for it.

All of this is done in an environment that has a strong emphasis on discipleship, personal leadership and empowerment. It is also strongly recommended to complete accredited study in Christian Leadership through Alphacrucis (Certificate IV or Diploma). By the end of the year you can expect to have:

  • A good foundational knowledge in Biblical Studies and Christian Theology

  • Practical expertise in your chosen ministry area

Upon completion, you will receive a Certificate of Recognition from LifeSource for the leadership training and service. A Certificate IV or Diploma of Leadership from Alphacrucis, acknowledging your academic studies will also be awarded on completion.
