Each Semester InterVarsity offers an Apprenticeship opportunities for student who are interested in growing as leaders in their faith & on their campus. The Apprenticeship is open to any current undergrad CSUDH & El Camino students who consider themselves followers of Jesus, and who are interested in discerning the possibility of serving as leaders with InterVarsity in the coming semester or year.
"Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him." - Mark 1:17-18 (NLT)
What is the time commitment?
Each Apprentice will meet the Apprentice Cohort together bi-weekly (every other week) for a time of teaching, community, and spiritual formation.
In addition each apprentice will be paired with a student leader, who they will meet with bi-weekly (every other week) for a time of 1-on-1 discipleship and leadership skills training. On the off weeks each apprentice will be putting their training into practice in practical ways.
Is a leadership position guaranteed?
The Apprentice Cohort is a semester-long discernment process, therefore a leadership role in InterVarsity is not expected, nor is it guaranteed. Our hope is that every student who participates in the cohort will grow as a disciple of Jesus, and hear clearly from God regarding their future leadership or servant role with the fellowship.
At the end of the semester, each Apprentice will be able to sit down with a student leader and/or staff for a conversation about what next steps would best suit them given their experience of apprenticeship, their life with God, and their other obligations on campus.
