CONVICTION
CHARACTER
COMPETENCE

Artizo Internships emphasize giving gifted individuals the opportunity to participate in a broad spectrum of ministry activities, under the guidance of experienced mentors. They recognize the vital connection between education and training, between theology and its practice, between ministry taught and ministry caught.

IT'S ABOUT WHO YOU ARE.

Christian leaders are grown through discipleship. Jesus does not come and write a book, or teach a class; he gathers a group of apprentices who follow him for three years. During this time, not only do they hear his gospel, they see it in action. Artizo uses internships in much the same way. Journeying with an experienced trainer and a group of peers over 2 years while actually doing ministry allows the real questions to come to the surface. Questions about ourselves, the church, and what it means to do ministry in the name of Jesus.

So How Do We Do This?

Our goal is that graduates will emerge as gifted leaders – able to clearly communicate the Gospel of Christ with conviction, character, and competence. Artizo internships focus on eight subsets to help accomplish this.

TESTIMONIALS

  • One of the best parts of being in Artizo is plugging into the heart of church ministry, and becoming a part of that ministry pulse. As I look to the future, I hope to continue in this heartbeat of the local church: discerning and cultivating the gifts God has given me and serving the needs of my context.

    Rev. Ben Roberts

  • They desired for us to be fully equipped for service and, based on that desire, they gave of themselves, richly and purposefully. The beauty of Artizo is that it doesn’t just rely on a class-room setting; it places the interns in real ministry contexts, and provides them with the feedback they need to grow and develop as ministers of the gospel.

    David McElrea

  • I have really enjoyed being in Artizo, it is a very unique program that centres on discipleship and hands-on ministry experience. I have had so many different opportunities that I would not have been afforded if I was not in the Artizo program. It has opened my eyes to giftedness in certain areas and passion in others.
