Next Generation Leadership

The PDC Board of Next Generation Leadership strives to encourage the next generation of church leaders by offering opportunities for the testing of gifts and passion in the context of a supportive local church ministry experience. The primary way the Board works at this encouragement process is through its summer internship program.

Local Mennonite Brethren churches host young adult interns who gain valuable ministry experience and discover more about themselves and God’s call on their lives.  The PDC partners with the local church in funding, orienting, and supporting each of the interns.  More information about this program is available by clicking on the appropriate download.

The Board also supports the Central Valley Ministry Forum held at Fresno Pacific University each spring.  This one day event serves to provide ongoing education and encouragement to local church leaders.

This District Board is again offering summer internship opportunities in a local Mennonite Brethren Church . These full-time, 3-month long internships are designed for 19-25 year olds to learn and grow in ministry areas such as Children's, Youth, Music, Preaching/Teaching, and Administrative ministries. These are paid internships, with plenty of accountability and support built into the program. Please see the information and application forms available on this site or by calling the PDC office at 559-453-2082.
