Now accepting applications for 2023!

The Experience

Entermission is committed to not just offering students a powerful experience of discipleship, but also raising up leaders equipped with the experience and ability to disciple in every area of life. We invite college graduates interested in enhancing their leadership skills to apply to join our learning community for the duration of our two semesters to help shape the lives of our students, and grow into character-centric leaders for the local church. 

Our apprentices act as coaches to our students. While mentors meet with students in a 1:1 setting each week, apprentices live among the students, participate in classroom settings and experiential activities, travel with students in phase two, and lead a team during our international portion. The primary goal of our apprentices is to invest in our students, encouraging and challenging them as necessary, and helping to assess the needs of individual students for discipleship.

You won't go through this process alone! As a learning community we understand that this can be a lot of responsibility, and our fast paced environment comes with a multitude of challenges (we never said it'd be easy!), that's why each of our apprentices is also paired with a mentor for the duration of our program. Aside from being poured into from each member of our leadership staff, we want to offer you a safe space to process, evaluate, and grow during your time at EnterMission. 


I’ve learned to understand God as Creator & through this I began to see his creation as artwork. I have learned to look for his image in the people around me, his fingerprint in nature, his handiwork in the landscape, be it a busy urban street or a tranquil clearing in the woods his presence is evident if I simply look

This has been a space for me to walk alongside those who don't yet know their direction, improve as a leader, and explore the world. Through moments of joy and challenge, I have grown not only in knowledge but in practice and love.

Do apprentice’s work on Sundays?

Yes, all interns will serve on Sundays, however during the initial 10 weeks at Johnson University, there will be programmed “time off”.

Most likely, no. The majority of your time will be either on campus at Johnson University, on the road in provided vehicles or overseas. However, transportation to Johnson University for the beginning of the program, transportation home for Christmas break, and transportation to Camp Allendale after Christmas break needs to be arranged.

What are the Ministry Phases?

Phase 1 - Begins at Johnson University (2.5 months)
Phase 2 - Involves the stateside Ministry Roadtrip (2.5                      months)
Phase 3 - Begins in January and involves the overseas                        component (4+ months)

We are a learning community—and every member, whether staff or student comes ready and open to immersive learning. We specialize in seeing people as people and not as projects, learning to engage in small-talk, becoming great listeners and storytellers. We focus on developing a sense of wonder as we intentionally engage the world, understanding that God is doing what He has always done—enter the lives and stories of his people for redemptive purposes. You will be given opportunities to lead by example, lead in prayer, lead in public speaking, and lead as you follow the Holy Spirit.

How Much 
support do i need
to raise?

As an apprentice, you need to raise $7,000.00 plus international travel costs. This means that you will need to raise monthly support of about $750.00 per month compared to our students who will raise approximately $13,000.00.  We will help you do this!

The “end game” or ultimate purpose of EnterMission is to prepare everyone to Enter a life on-mission regardless of vocation. We want everyone to leave with a better understanding of who they are, who God is, and how we can intentionally and naturally live out our faith beyond the walls of the church!
