Internships

The Hendricks Center offers six internships each year. Interns at the Hendricks Center gain invaluable experience at a highly-orchestrated ministry on the front lines of culture and faith. The Hendricks Center gives you not just observation in the ministry, but also a voice to contribute to the conversation. These internships can be adapted to one, two, or three semesters in length (subject to the internship office requirements).

You are eligible for a Hendricks Center internship if you:

  • Are currently enrolled as a student at Dallas Theological Seminary in a professional ministry degree (not general academic programs)
  • Live in the Dallas area
  • Have not yet met the internship requirements
  • Can commit 7-10 hours per week
  • Think critically and compassionately

Each intern must be prepared to meet the following requirements: 

  • Attend the weekly staff meeting
  • Complete assigned readings
  • Attend bi-weekly internship-mentor meetings
  • Successfully meet the conditions of each semester’s performance review
  • Attend selected events such as Leader Board, student dinners, workshops, Conferences, etc. (many of these events occur outside of office hours)
  • Enjoy working on a dynamic team

Below are the descriptions for each of the different internships that the Hendricks Center offers. If you are interested in applying for an internship through the Hendricks Center, please fill out the application below. Thank you!

New Testament Hybrid

This focus will be helpful for those interested in learning to meld academics with practical engagement in an academic center. The intern will choose another internship focus area and do that in conjunction with a purely academic exercise. This intern may write and present a paper at regional ETS (or equivalent), teach a Lay Institute class, and choose another focus to fulfill those requirements. Dr. Bock is not currently offering a standard academic New Testament internship. Mentor: Mikel Del Rosario
