Ministry and Internship Opportunities
The best training for pastoral work and particularly church planting comes through hands-on experience. The RTS-Charlotte Center for Church Planting is committed to providing real-time experiences in church planting and various core competencies while students attend RTS-Charlotte.
Learning in Charlotte, an International City
RTS-Charlotte is strategically and providentially placed in one of the fastest growing regions in the southeast. With a large population of young professionals in urban and suburban environments, Charlotte is an excellent place to live and to experience various subcultures. Charlotte also has a strong Reformed presence and serves as a movement base for Reformed church planting and church planter training. Opportunities for ministry and rich experiences in church planting are manifold.
Internship Opportunities and Church Planting Mentoring
The city of Charlotte provides students with numerous opportunities to be involved in church plants. This provides invaluable hands-on experience as students discern their call and are mentored by church planters in the Charlotte area. Students in the program will normally be assigned an approved area church planter to meet with on a regular basis to help shape their character, theology and philosophy of ministry.
