Summer Leadership Academy

The Summer Leadership Academy of First Baptist Rogers is for college students who are called by God to vocational ministry. It is a great opportunity to learn and practice God’s calling and get paid for it! FBR is a multi-generational, multi-campus, multi-ethnic, thriving church in Northwest Arkansas. Therefore, it will provide a comprehensive ministry experience. The 10-week paid internship seeks to teach, equip, train, and develop vocational ministry leaders called to specific ministry areas.. The areas include:

  • Preschool (birth-Kindergarten)
  • Kids (1-5 grades)
  • Students (6-12 grade)
  • Adults (College and up)
  • Music
  • Media
  • Communications

There are a limited number of positions available, so apply now! We will continue receiving applications until all spots are filled or until March 7, 2022.

Through the Summer Intern program, First Baptist Rogers seeks to provide a quality experience:

  • To mentor and encourage students who have publicly responded to a vocational call to ministry.
  • To seek academic credit from a Christian college for this intern program. With the desire to obtain college academic credit, our faculty is made up of those who have Master’s degrees or above from accredited colleges and seminaries.
