Compelled Ministry Internship
Compelled Ministry Internship is a two year program focused on biblical education and practical ministry experience. We want to partner with students who believe they have a spiritual calling to be involved in pastoral ministry, missions, or peruse biblical education and local church involvement. Biblical education and courses will be partnered through Berean School of the Bible. Students who graduate from Compelled: Ministry Internship have the opportunity to pursue credentialing with the Assemblies of God.  Upon completion of the program, if both the student and the Compelled: Ministry Internship Director and Pastor agree that the student is ready to apply for credentialing, then the student will be encouraged to pursue their License to Preach. Apart from biblical education students will develop practical ministry skills by serving with us here at KCA and our church plant The Gathering Kalama. 

The tuition for the Compelled: Ministry Internship is $3,420 per year per student in need of housing.  The tuition for the students who are not in need of housing is $1,520 for the year.  The tuition covers all books, materials, manuals, conference fees and one missions trip per year.  There is a $350 down payment, payable two weeks prior to the first day of each year (due Aug. 22).  The remaining balance can be divided over the remaining months of the school year. Classes for second year cannot be started unless first year is paid in full.

For more details and specifics please download the Compelled Student Handbook below, or contact one of our internship directors; Pastor Kyle Strum, Pastor Taylor Galbreath.
