We want to help young men who sense a call to pastoral ministry discover regular, day-to-day ministerial life and provide them with an ecclesiological and pastoral grid for doing the work of ministry.

Through their interaction with our church’s life, interns will discover that we believe God’s church is the main outpost of the gospel in the world. Not only that, they will consider what it means to serve in the local church according to God’s Word.


The internship will begin the final week of May and end the first week in August. We prefer interns travel and arrive in Dumas the week of May 27 . Departure in August is flexible, but the internship and stipend for living expenses will officially end on August 2.

The bulk of the intern’s time will be spent in on-the-job ministry training with the pastors in visiting, teaching, preaching, and leading some activities. Interns will also be reading several books and writing conversational responses to be discussed with the pastors.


In addition to the reading and writing assignments mentioned above, the intern’s week includes mandatory attendance at staff meetings, all public services of the church, staff prayer times, intern discussions, weddings, wedding rehearsals, funerals, weekly service reviews, intern accountability and supervision times, and any spontaneous meetings that arise in the week.

To apply, send a current resume to, along with a brief explanation of why you are interested in this opportunity. We will contact you for further information if needed and will make a final selection by the end of April.

We welcome applications from any men who are aiming at pastoral ministry, but preference is given to those in Bible college or seminary. We expect the interns to affirm the The Baptist Faith and Message (2000) and pledge not to teach or preach outside of those bounds while serving as an intern at FBC. We will consider applications from men with families, but this opportunity is best suited for single men.

Housing will be provided for the duration of the internship. In addition, interns will receive a stipend of $2,500 ($250 per week) for living expenses. We expect each intern to have health insurance coverage for himself (and his family, if applicable) for the duration of the internship.
