Triad School of Ministry exists to invest in the next generation for life and leadership. Whether you are taking a "gap year" after high-school before launching into a 4-year college or vocation, developing skills for future full-time ministry, or simply looking for foundations in life and leadership — Triad School of Ministry is for anyone. This 9-month, full-time internship program designed for ages 18-25 will take place in the beautiful city of Burlington, NC.
This year is more than just a degree, it’s a deposit into your future. We want to teach you the truth of Scripture and give you solid foundations to build your life upon. Our heart is to help you discover your identity, dreams, passions, purposes, and unlock the call of God in your life. You will have unique opportunities to develop your skills and truly experience leadership in the context of the local church. At the end of your time at Triad, you will be equipped and released for the destiny that God has for you.
We believe that the local church has something to say about developing young people for the future. Why shouldn’t education and life development happen within the local church? The apostle Paul challenges his student Timothy saying,
“For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:6-7
We believe there is a spark inside of you just waiting to be fanned into flame for the purposes of God. We want to see you live fearless and lay hold of the call on your life. As you surrender the next year of your life, we know that you will carry the banner of Jesus for the next generation and stake your flag on the things that matter. Will you join us? Will you surrender?
Triad School of Ministry will include college-level classes in the areas of Bible/Theology and Practical Ministry. These semester-long classes are designed to give you a biblical foundation for life and leadership. Some of the courses you will take at Triad School of Ministry include:
Triad School of Ministry will give students the opportunity to be a part of our team at Trinity Worship Center. This is not your typical internship. You will be at the heart of our ministry, learning to truly lead in a thriving church environment. As a student, you will select from our various ministry tracks to specialize your leadership experience.
Student Life is the heart and soul of the Triad School of Ministry experience. Triad is more than just a SCHOOL, it’s a FAMILY. Our unique student life environment allows students to experience life in tight-knit community. You can expect lifelong friendships and countless memories during your 9-month journey at Triad. There’s nothing quite like chasing the call, pursuing life, and running the race with friends. Student Life at Triad School of Ministry includes:
"God has been speaking to me in so many different ways this semester --- ways in which I never thought possible. For the longest time, I was begging God to speak to me. But I didn't realize that he was waiting for me to be silent. God DOES want to speak to us, but he wants for us to want to hear Him. Sometimes He is silent and through that silence we are able to grow and trust Him.
I am learning to increase my faith and fully trust Him. My focus is not on comparing myself with others, but on aligning myself with God's Word."
