Doctors have residency. Lawyers have articling. Pastors have INTERNSHIP.

Willingdon Pastoral Internship is a one-year, full time program designed to prepare participants in the context of the local church for life-long ministry.  By providing practical ministry experience, relevant and applicable Bible teaching and personal mentorship, our desire is to train those Jesus is calling to develop their ministry skills, increase their biblical knowledge, grow their character and discern their ministry calling.  Is Christ calling you?

We are now accepting applications for the September 2020-August 2021 term.

Willingdon Church

Willingdon Church was founded in 1961 with a mission to reach its community for Jesus.  It has grown to now include seven weekend services, and more than 12 language ministries.

Founded as a Mennonite Brethren Church, Willingdon holds a strong commitment to biblical preaching, Biblical and systematic theology, and Elder-led ecclesiology. We are deeply committed to disciple making and to equipping the saints for ministry.

We have a passion to reach our city and our world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  This includes a vision for helping plant new churches and raising up leaders to be effective ministers of the gospel.
