To be a Citipointe Interns in Australia, you must be over 18 years old, or have finished Year 12. The equivalent applies to our NZ and USA Citipointe locations.
Can I work and be an Intern at the same time?

Do I need a laptop or tablet?
Absolutely. To be honest, there isn’t much that happens within Citipointe Church that does not start on a Google Doc or Spreadsheet. Not to mention Elvanto, Basecamp and any other systems that we use to run the world. Therefore, each student is required to have some form of device (laptop or tablet) to use throughout the duration of the course.
What are the standards that participants must abide by?
Being a Citipointe Intern is an honour and a privilege. For a whole year you will part of the behind-the-scenes action of one of Australia’s great churches. With this privilege comes a certain level of responsibility. Part of upholding this responsibility, is agreeing to our Citipointe Church Heartbeat Document and other legislative documents.
Can I do my practical work back in my local church?
Of course! You will participate in class at one of the Citipointe locations near you, and can outwork the practical components of the course back through your local church. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long is the course?
The Citipointe Internship Academy is a 1 year course running in 3 trimesters. We have two intakes each year; one in January and one in May.
