The Church Leadership Internship (for CLW credit) may not be used in conjunction with meeting academic requirements and/or receiving monetary compensation. The Church Leadership internship is a CLW leadership option for students who want to lead ministries within the local Christian church.

If interested in participating, submit to the University Minister a written proposal describing the ministry opportunity you plan to lead. The proposal must be approved by the Spiritual Life Office before the CLI service hours begin. Students may receive up to 20 credits/semester in addition to the 20 credits from the CLI. There is a career limit of one CLI for CLW credits. In this leadership internship, we are defining leadership as a person who guides, directs, and/or presides over an activity, program or group of people. Leadership consists of more than attendance, service, participation and management.
