Check out some testimonies from a few of our many previous intern students...


"I didn’t know what I was in for when I started Emmaus, it was so much more than I expected.  The internship led me to be a Youth Pastor at CCC.  I can’t imagine doing anything different now. It’s a calling on my life I didn’t realise was there until I did the internship.  

The Thursday classes were a huge highlight for me too, they were small and intimate classes where we could ask questions."

- Debbie Harris 


"Internships are fun and self-motivating. Since completing my internship I’ve gained a greater love for the church and for the word and gained a real respect for it. Emmaus taught me a lot, but also opened my eyes that there is so much more to learn.  

If you are thinking of doing an internship put both feet in and go for it!"

- Zion Douglas (Youth Pastor, Life Church)
