Engage 2014


City on a Hill is passionate about empowering and equipping the next generation of leaders to impact our city for the glory of God. A key part of this is our Engage internship program, which provides emerging leaders an opportunity to engage with God’s word, engage in ministry and mission, and engage with God’s call on their lives.

The Engage program has three main components:


Sunday Services

On Sundays our Interns function as ‘hosts’, setting up the venue and then working to ensure each individual is welcomed and engaged. They may function as a service manager, welcomer or team leader, or assist in setting up and administering communion, teaching in City Kidz. Training and support is provided in all areas.


Engage Sessions

Interns participate in regular training sessions, with both theological and practical training provided by the Pastors and staff of City on a Hill. These small group seminar discussions are designed to provide a broad theological foundation, with an emphasis on heart response and real-world application. They are augmented by practical training sessions, designed to equip Interns for ministry long-term. 


Ministry Portfolios

At the heart of the Engage program is the ministry portfolio; a 1+ day-a-week placement in a specific area of ministry that fits their gifts and passions, and corresponds to needs within the church. Interns will be given genuine responsibility, with a range of regular tasks and major projects that will stretch abilities and develop skills. These will be performed with extensive training and support from a Supervisor – a member of staff trained and experienced in this area of ministry.

We have a number of exciting new ministry portfolios opening up in 2014:

Kingdom Assistant

Working alongside the Kingdom Pastor, this is an expansive position offering opportunities to work in the planning of evangelism events such as Introducing Jesus, baptism preparation classes, and the Acts 29 National Conference.

Community Internship

Assist with the organization and hosting of Newcomer Nights and community-wide events, participate in 1:1 ministry, and aid database management.

Assistant to the Executive Director (Ministry)

A broad role encompassing the co-ordination and support of Sunday services, volunteer teams, ministry directors, special projects, major events and City Steps goal implementation.

Research Developer

Play a key role in the Research Department of City on a Hill, contributing to teaching resources, the church website, and developing a shared research ‘centre’, accessible for teaching programs.

Vision Internship

Assist in the management of on-screen elements at our Sunday services, supervising volunteers, developing in-service presentations, and contributing to video production.

Design Internship

Contribute to the design of promotional graphics for events, courses and teaching series, as well as develop a ‘Brand Style Guide’ to be used across multiple church locations.

Office Administration

A unique opportunity to learn and be involved in the inner workings of one of the fastest growing churches in Melbourne, providing administrative assistance to ministry teams on projects and events.

Policy Development Internship

As our church grows in size and complexity, we have an increasing need for policy development, and are excited to offer an internship position in the development and review of policies within the operations arm of the church.
