PVLI was created to empower and develop life-giving leaders to discover and cultivate their God-given gifts and unique callings.

This is so much more than your typical internship. Here at Pleasant Valley we’re all about seeing lives made alive in Jesus. So, if your idea of an internship has more to do with making a difference versus making copies, than this is the program for you.


This one of a kind program provides the space and opportunity for you to grow in who God has made you to be. Through this experience, you will be exposed to ministry and work in a professional environment, grow in leadership, and education on skills needed that will help personally and professionally.

What will my week look like?

Each intern's schedule will vary based on your area of ministry, time commitment, and responsibilities you agree upon. Every intern will attend our weekly intern gatherings and every intern is welcome and highly encouraged to join the various staff meetings throughout the week.

Who is the ideal candidate?

We encourage those who are between the ages of 18-28, have a high school diploma or equivalent, are a committed follower of Jesus, and support the mission and vision of Pleasant Valley.

How long does the program last?

The program is designed to be two years and we find the interns will get the most out of their experience by attending both years. However, an intern will find it highly beneficial if only attended one year. 

What areas of ministry can I serve in?

No matter your passion or gifting, there is a place for you! We have positions in Missions and Outreach, Biblical Counseling/Discipleship Ministries, College, High School, Middle School, and Children's Ministries, Worship Arts, Tech, Graphics and Design, and Next Steps.

Is PVLI accredited?

Though PVLI is not accredited. The experience, training, and skills learned during the program will be highly profitable in any future endeavor. 

What is the cost of the internship?

The full two years of the program is $1500, $750 for one year.

When does the internship year start?

The next start of the new intern year will be June of 2020.

Why should I apply to PVLI?

Whether you're interested in full-time, vocational ministry, want to grow deeper in your relationship with the Lord, want to gain more wisdom and expertise in the field of leadership, or all three, PVLI offers the space and intentional coaching in all of these areas. You'll gain the experience and development needed to wherever God calls you next.
