The Internship and Sponsored Student Committee facilitates the work and enhance the experiences of our interns and sponsored students.

When Community Church has an intern, the Committee provides lay guidance and stands ready to help the intern through informal contact.

The Committee also supervises students preparing for the
ministry who wish to be sponsored by Community Church during a year of record required by the denomination, as they participate in the activities of the congregation. The Committee maintains informal contact with the students and stands ready to assist them.
