FBC Melbourne seeks to be a 2 Timothy 2:2 church, making disciples who can make disciples who can make disciples! We believe our Aspire Internship program is an important part of that! Aspire is a two-year ministry internship program. Aspire interns are given theological training and ministry experience as they explore a calling to serve as a church planter, a missionary, or a pastor.
In partnership with Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, our Aspire interns will be able to earn master’s level seminary credit for courses and internships taken at FBC Melbourne. Through additional online courses and/or on-campus courses at Southeastern, Aspire interns will be able to complete a master of divinity degree, or another master’s degree program of their choosing. Those who do not wish to take the courses for credit may still be approved as Aspire interns and invited to audit the courses, as space allows. (Space is limited to 12 Aspire interns per semester). Contact Sandy Stockton at Sandy@fbcmel.org to express your interest in joining Aspire or to receive more information about the program.
