FORT CITY CHURCH offers 8 month to 2 year internship as well as 2 to 3 year apprenticeship opportunities for spiritually passionate, adventurous at heart young adults seeking to gain either experience in preparation for full time ministry or a route into full time credentialed ministry with a church family like the Christian & Missionary Alliance in Canada. 

Live-Passion-Paintball-cr1Think LIFE, , TRANSFORMATION and ADVENTURE as you consider developing your ministry and leadership skills alongside of an engaged and supportive staff and volunteer team who are as committed to your own personal growth as they are to the overall mission of the church. Fort City Church provides an exiting environment for the risk-taking emerging leader who wants to develop into a Spirit empowered catalytic agent for the unveiling of God’s kingdom. Ample breathing space is given to the person who is seeking to live life to the full while thinking outside the box in order to make the invisible Jesus tangibly visible to the needs of our city and world.

This is Northern Alberta! This is Oilsands country! You will be serving in the heart of Canada’s rugged boreal forest, with some incredible outdoor sports opportunities in a quickly growing city of over 100,000 that is surprisingly exuberant and international. If you are jazzed by any of fishing, hunting, paintball, mountain biking, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, hockey, ATVing, snowmobiling, you’ll have ample opportunity! Or leap into Fort McMurray’s growing arts and music scene as a consumer or participant. For others there are some seriously intense photographic and painting opportunities ready for you to capture in and around our region. Or workout in some of the most incredible recreational facilities in the country.

Most importantly you’ll b serving with a church family that is committed to a holistic mission of word and deed. We are acutely sensitive to tattoos-male-reading-bible-aand inclusive of people from irreligious backgrounds while growing a community of deeply passionate fully alive missional Christ followers. We’re a church that can see around 270 on a typical Sunday, with perhaps 600 who call the church home. The church is experiencing growth from a diversity of backgrounds and demographics, churched and unchurched, especially among young families and young singles who are typical of this youthful city.  We truly believe that God has a significant role for us to play as we seek to be a holistic ministry to our city and region.

A monthly honourarium as well as room & board are provided. We are also open to those who would like to seek employment in the Fort McMurray Area and combine that with an internship opportunity.
