Who We Are
Finding, Training, and Sending Leaders at Arbor Road who make a Kingdom Impact here and beyond. Our Intern program is geared toward anyone who seeks to make an influence in ministry, the marketplace, or any place the Lord has them. We currently work primarily with 18-25 year olds.
What to expect
We broaden practical ministry experience, deepening your understanding of essential Biblical truth and core leadership principles; the wide variety of roles meet leaders at various spots in their ministry journey. Many start in our intern role and find us through our partnership with Biola University, coming to us locally through Cal State Long Beach, and a variety of other schools within 30 minutes of Long Beach.
Leaders spend 90% of their time gaining firsthand experience working right alongside our team with access to all the seasoned shepherds who serve at Arbor Road.

What do Arbor Road Internships look like?
We take 90 minutes each Wednesday from 3-4:30pm to pour in to you through interactive training.
This takes on a variety of forms – so if you’re thinking it’s a boring classroom, you’re missing it. Our leaders in training don’t simply learn through observation; you will complete your season of leadership having furthered the mission of your particular ministry in a way that outlasts your time in the role. Having trained over a hundred interns in more than 70 years of impact, we consistently hear leaders share that the training they received was worth the investment.
