Welcome to the Pastoral Internship of the First Baptist Church of Durham! The FBC internship program is intended to prepare young men for a life of fruitful, biblically-faithful vocational ministry. We operate under the conviction that gospel churches have the primary responsibility of producing gospel ministries. The internship is our attempt to follow the example of the New Testament. Paul trained Timothy to be a pastor and then instructed him to train others-”You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” (2 Tim 2:1-2).
The internship is designed to be both instructional and practical. This document should provide you with an introduction to the internship. Please read over it carefully so you know what to expect. These requirements are subject to change at the discretion of Andy Davis or Andy Winn, so please plan on being flexible.
