Past Interns

Through the internship program, CHBC has invested heavily in the lives of dozens of men hoping to serve God and His church as pastors. The program started in 1998 with one intern and has since grown to include at least twelve full-time interns each year. While we do not know yet the full fruits of CHBC’s investment in the church, we do know what our past interns are doing currently. Periodically, we ask them to update us on what is happening in their lives. We hope that in doing so we will enable our site visitors to know how the internship has affected lives and to possibly discover a potential candidate for a ministry position.

The past shows a strong planting of pastoral seeds at CHBC. We hope that the stories written here only multiply in number and bring much glory to God.
