When I apply, do I choose a specific internship position?

No. We simply ask that each applicant specify a preference as listed on the application

If I am selected, how will you help me prepare to do my job?

There will be a mandatory gathering for all interns in April 2017 after each intern accepts his or her internship. Each intern will also participate in a 10 day orientation that will include skills training and formation in mid August 2017. A summer reading assignment may also be assigned. 

What if I am going abroad in the Spring Semester?

You can complete the application process before you leave. If you are selected for an interview, it will take place in person prior to Christmas Break. If you are selected for a position, we will work with you to make a plan for the spring and summer so that you’ll be ready to serve as a senior intern when you return!

What if I already plan to apply for an RA position? Should I still apply for Anchor? 

Yes! Even if you are applying to be an RA you should still apply to Anchor. If you do not apply and you learn that you were not hired as an RA, it will be too late to apply for Anchor. We recommend applying for both. 

Will preference be given to applicants who have a strong desire to do professional ministry after graduation? 

No, we are interested in people who would like to continue to grow in their faith and serve the Church in a variety of capacities, which includes pursuing other professions as full-time jobs.
