Hands on Training.

Your internship will give you hands on experience in ministry and prepare you for leadership in the marketplace.

Our world class staff is ready to pour into your chosen track. These internship tracks include: Leadership, Worship, and Production.



Learn the tools you need to be an effective leader in ministry or the marketplace.

Leadership at its core is a decision to reject current reality and fight for change. Pastoral Leadership is learning to bring about that change by caring for people in the way Jesus modeled for us. Effecting change is never easy, but in this major, you'll learn how to lead yourself, lead others, and create systems to support change.

Invest in your skills onstage. Develop expertise offstage.

To work in a growing church, it takes a lot more than onstage skill. You have to have a solid theological foundation for worship, be a capable music director, be able to build a team, train volunteers, navigate a church staff, and so much more. That’s what we’re going to train you to do.

The church needs versatile pros. Answer the call.

There are intangible skills developed during late night load-ins, troubleshooting with minutes before doors open, and actually making it happen behind a console that you just can’t learn anywhere else.

That's why the Production Major has such a focus on hands-on learning.

I truly learned what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus through understanding how to have a devotional life, accountability, and a deeper knowledge of God’s Word.

Thrive School exceeded my expectations in every way! I wasn’t ready for was the incredible relationships I built, how it prepared me to work in full time ministry, and best of all how it re-kickstarted my relationship with The Lord. Five years later, I have completed my BA in Psychology and I get the privilege of working in full time ministry at Bayside!
