FAQ

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 many 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: www.cefonline.com/apply. When filling out the application, be sure to put “IHQ Intern” as your desired position.

Will I need to fundraise?

Yes, the goal is to raise $3,500. 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.

What should I plan to bring?

The rooms the interns stay in are very similar to college dorm rooms. Bedding and towels are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own. You may bring a small refrigerator or TV for your room if you would like. Most of the internship positions require you to wear “business casual” clothes, so you will want 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.
