Description

City Vision Internships is a Christian one-year, multi-year or summer internship program based on
the AmeriCorps model. Interns serve at one of over 40 positions across the USA and Canada. In the past 10
years, we have placed over 500 full-time interns and 68,000+ volunteers in hundreds of Christian ministries.

Technical Services Internship
CIM Overview
Since our beginning in 1996, CIM has existed to support the IT needs of Christian churches, ministries & mission organizations. Over the past two decades, we have routinely sought to challenge others in the tech disciplines to mobilize their gifts and abilities in service to Christ & His kingdom. We've seen tech specialists from all personal and professional IT backgrounds develop valuable, ministry specific experience that has enabled dozens of our Ministry Partner organizations to better achieve their individual, God-given callings.

Internship Objective
In an effort to prepare future ministry IT leaders, CIM desires to augment classroom education by partnering with interns seeking to gain the experience necessary to serve ministries with excellence. Our goal is to provide ministry focused, best-in-class tech support and leadership that our Ministry Partners rave about!
