Church Internships

What is a Worship Arts Conservatory Internship?

Worship Arts Conservatory in partnership with Detroit area churches is offering Internship Scholarships in Ministry and Worship. The interns selected for these positions will gain hands on experience in ministry and receive a scholarship to Worship Arts Conservatory.

The internship will help you gain college-level Christian education at a fraction of the cost while being involved on a weekly basis in the leadership of  a local church.
