Why do we support our interns?
At WBC we believe an intern program within churches is a great investment of our time, energy, lives, and finances. The main purpose of our intern program is to provide opportunities for the intern to learn by doing. It gives an opportunity to observe, serve, and try out many different types of ministry with assistance and guidance going into it, and feedback and reflection afterwards. Our interns are able to see ‘behind the scenes’ at church and learn what is involved in preparing for, and participating in, regular church ministry.
Interview with Tim Lowth
Tim and his wife Naomi have been attending WBC since Easter 2020 (mostly online!). He has just finished a 2 year ministry apprenticeship with AFES at the University of Wollongong, and has commenced full-time theological study at Moore College this year. He will be serving a day a week at WBC, and will be involved in preaching and other ministries in the evening. He’s really excited to be growing in his ability to help people deepen their love and knowledge of Christ through God’s Word.
Interview with Paul Boulton
Paul joined WBC in 2019 with his wife, Amy, and their five children. After working in the aviation industry for 20 years, Paul is now considering full-time ministry options in the future, and sees the ministry internship as an opportunity to be equipped. Paul will be serving 2-3 days a week, and will be involved in our welcoming team, our men’s ministry, and Christianity Explored.
