Why Start an Internship Program at Your Church?

We're equipping churches to start their own internship program, powered by Destiny Leadership Institute

Raise Up Your Leaders

Our mission is to train Christian leaders through both study and service. Interns learn Bible, theology, and leadership through online courses, while serving as interns in their local church under the guidance of spiritual leadership.

White-Labeled Bible College

You have the opportunity to name your internship program whatever you'd like. You're not promoting DLI to your congregation, you're promoting something with your church's name and brand.


You don't have to write or teach any curriculum. You get to the fun stuff, but we do the boring work.


Our friends at Vibrant Church in The Woodlands, TX, for example, are a host site and they're calling their internship program "Vibrant College". Grace Church in Houston, TX, for example, has "Grace Leadership Institute".

Affordable For Your Interns

We utilize courses from Destiny Leadership Institute for your internship program. DLI is a fraction of the cost compared to other similar institutions. The average Christian university is $500/credit hour. DLI is less than $200/credit hour.


This is made possible as a result of our management strategy and the generosity of our covenant partners who subsidize the cost of operation to help keep tuition rates low.


Our current tuition rate is $1,500 per year, paid in six consecutive installments. A 10% discount is applied when paid in full up front.


However, you can charge whatever you need to operate your internship program. Interns will pay you directly, and then DLI will invoice your church for your students' tuition.

Plug-and-Play Internship Program

Have you ever wanted to start an internship program? When you become a host site for DLI, we give you everything you need to start an effective internship program.

Online Biblical Training

Destiny Leadership Institute currently offers a two-year program that, upon completion, leads to the Diploma in Christian Leadership. Each Core is designed to be user-friendly and practical, as well as academically sound.


Utilizing the latest Internet technology coupled with time-proven educational delivery systems, DLI cultivates the interns' understanding of Scripture, their ministry gifting, and personal life vision. By doing so, we assist them in laying firm foundations within their lives upon which they can build their Ministry and Leadership skills.

Transferable Credits

DLI has an articulation agreement with Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL. This will allow interns to transfer up to 18 credit hours to SEU, where interns can continue their education through SEU's online program.

We help churches start and implement an internship program, so they can raise up their own leaders in-house. We partner with Destiny Leadership Institute, so your students can learn Bible, theology, and leadership through online courses while serving as interns in your church.

The Plug & Play Internship Program

What is Destiny Leaders Institute?

The purpose of Destiny Leadership Institute (DLI) is to make biblical and leadership training available anywhere in the world, enabling Christian leaders to develop character, discover calling, increase competence, and operate within their respective organization’s culture. The training is designed to raise the quality of service coming from every level of leadership—not just those entering full-time ministry. The program is interactive, flexible, and affordable so that emerging leaders can discover their purpose and develop their gifts without interrupting other duties (i.e. family, work, local church ministry obligations). DLI seeks to be part of the answer to the prayer that Jesus instructed his disciples to pray, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Luke 10:2).

The mission of DLI is to train Christian leaders through both study and service. Interns' learn Bible, theology, and leadership through online courses, while serving as interns in their local church under the guidance of spiritual leadership.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Character

We help students develop their character. We do a great disservice to people when we teach them what they are supposed to do before we teach them what kind of person they are supposed to be.



Calling

We help students discover their calling. Each of us was designed on purpose for a purpose.

Capacity

We help students increase their capacity. We value excellence, which we define as “doing our very best every time.”

Church

We empower students to serve their church. We are not competitors with the local church; we are partners with the local church. We seek to train leaders to operate within the structure and culture of their respective local church.

WHY DLI?

We're Flexible

Our online program is designed to fit well into even the most demanding lifestyle and schedule. It is built to be flexible, while at the same time, structured enough to keep interns on track. In this way interns can balance their study schedules with other responsibilities as they integrate systematic learning into their daily lives.


DLI is designed so that our interns gain practical training in the field of ministry service and leadership in their local church in conjunction with their academic studies.

We're Interactive

DLI courses are not merely self-guided correspondence classes. Well-respected and knowledgeable instructors, who are experts in their fields, guide interns through the course materials. Interns regularly collaborate and communicate with interns and instructors while they serve and apply what they are learning to their local church or ministry settings.


All units incorporate a variety of interactive elements, such as discussion boards, live webinars, and video lectures.
