Ministry Apprenticeship

Are you training for vocational ministry?

Willow Creek Church is located near the Orlando campus of Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS). Over the years, many of our members and friends have attended and graduated from RTS-Orlando. Some even completed a ministry apprenticeship at Willow Creek during their studies. We continue to offer this opportunity to select students. 

Our apprenticeship program exists to help prepare future Christian leaders for service in the church, whether as pastors or as specialized ministry staff members. Through friendship, mentoring, and wide range of ministerial experiences, we seek to encourage and equip seminary students as they complete their studies not only inside, but also outside, the classroom.

We believe that academic education, while indispensible, is not sufficient preparation for ministry alone. Ministry training, within the local church, is vital. 

If you’re sensing a call to ministry within a local church, and desire to complete a ministry apprenticeship during your studies at RTS-Orlando or another seminary, please contact us (407-699-8211). We will schedule an informational meeting to discuss your hopes, outline our apprenticeship opportunity, and prayerfully discern if this might be part of God’s plan for you!
