Is the internship the right choice for someone who wants to pursue a career in missions with CEF?

The internship is a great option for someone who is looking to pursue a career with CEF. We have had several interns go on to be full-time staff members at IHQ and in their local area.

How can I apply?

The application can be found at: When filling out the application, be sure to put “IHQ Intern” as your desired position.

Do monthly gifts count toward my funding goal?

Yes, the goal is to raise $3,300. This can be either one-time or monthly gifts. For example, if someone commits to giving you $100 per month during your internship, then we will count that as $1,200.

Can I participate in a Good News Club while in Warrenton?

Yes, there are several Good News Clubs that take place in Warrenton. It is a CEF policy to allow employees to leave work early in order to participate in a Good News Club.

Will I have a mentor while at Headquarters?

Yes, interns are paired up with HQ staff members. They then will meet together throughout the year to make sure that everything is going well for the intern.

What should I plan to bring?

The rooms that our interns stay in are very similar to college dorm rooms. Bedding and towels are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own. You can also have a small refrigerator or TV in your room if you would like. Most of the internships require you to wear “business casual” clothes. So you will want to be sure that you bring proper work attire.

What are others saying about the internships?

The internship has been a truly life-changing experience for me. I have learned a variety skills and experienced things I probably never would have if I did not do the internship this year.

Not having worked with CEF before coming as an intern and being 4 years out of college, left me questioning if it was a good move for me at that point or not, to where I almost let the opportunity pass me by.
