Once we receive your application, we will work to find you best-fit opportunities with churches who are looking for summer interns.
There is no guarantee that a role will be found for you, but as soon as potential opportunities come up, you will be notified by the church who is wanting to invite you into their interview process.
It's important that you keep looking for other jobs, even after you apply for the FLOW Internship!
