Why be an intern?


Interns work in one of several departments at Mount Hermon. They receive top level training in their area of specialty, on-going mentoring, and the opportunity to attend intern retreats that blend work training, community development, and spiritual formation.

Meaningful Work

Interns serve guests alongside our year-round staff, helping each guest experience Jesus. We go all in for our guests with the desire for them to be refreshed, renewed, and transformed by their time at Mount Hermon.

Discipleship & Community

Interns participate in coursework and journey together in exploring who they are, who God has made them to be, and to better understand the story of God at work in their lives all while living and working together.
