The RADIUS Church Multiplication Intensive is a program designed to train students and young professionals who express a desire to serve in church-planting or other multiplying ministries. This program is specifically for men and women who are in college, graduate school, or early in their careers. We focus on developing the whole person — the head, heart, and hands — through rigorous training, deep relationships, and practical experience. If you have a passion for Jesus Christ and are dreaming about multiplying His church, this program is for you.
RIGOROUS TRAINING (HEAD)
Learning both spiritually and strategically in order to multiply ministries in a healthy manner.
DEEP RELATIONSHIPS (HEART)
Seeking Jesus with like-minded believers through spiritual disciplines.
PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE (HANDS)
Hands-on opportunities for growth, failure, and real-time feedback from trainers.
The RADIUS Church Multiplication Intensive focuses on church-planting as the primary model of organized multiplication found in Scripture. However, there are many roles in planting churches, and we want to align our training with your gifts, passions, and abilities both now and in the future. We offer Intensives with emphases in the following areas:
- Adult Groups
- Student Ministry
- Creative Arts
- Kids Ministry
- Ministry Operations
- Production / Worship

Participants are paid $1,000 per month and work approximately 35 hours per week (with the exception of camp weeks). Participants have eleven weeks to complete ten weeks of the Intensive.
Participants are given a total of one week of paid time off during their Intensive. This paid time off is to be scheduled in advance with a supervisor. In addition, there are paid holidays throughout the year.
The typical weekly work schedule is based on 35 hours per week for part-time Interns – although this can flex up or down depending on the season.
