We are so excited to officially open applications for College Leadership for the 2021-22 school year!

      COLLEGE LEADERSHIP is an opportunity for you, as college students, to serve our church together, to grow as followers of Jesus together, and to lead others as you develop as leaders together! We are looking for students currently attending college who are highly motivated, hard-working, and spiritually hungry. College Leadership will require a significant amount of your time and effort, but we believe it will also make a substantial impact on your life, your walk with Jesus, and your leadership journey.

      While many of us feel ill-equipped or underqualified to step into leadership, remember this: God doesn’t call the equipped; he equips the called! If you are a follower of Jesus who wants to grow in your walk and serve others, we believe you are perfectly positioned to serve and to lead. So don’t stop here- keep reading!

      We believe that the Overflow Intern Team and Overflow Community Groups are great places for college students to lead, but we also know that there are other incredible leadership opportunities at our church- opportunities that may even be a better fit for you! Through College Leadership, we want to introduce you to more opportunities for more of you to serve, grow, and lead together through our church. Below you will find some helpful information regarding College Leadership!

      In the application, you can indicate multiple leadership opportunities that interest you. Our church is committed to helping you to find your next step when it comes to your leadership journey. Let’s take a closer look!

College Leadership has two tracks: INTERNSHIPS & GROUP LEADERSHIP.

(The ideal commitment for both is the entire 2021-22 school year.)


  • Internships are a chance to be a part of a team of interns that serve within a particular ministry of our church. The goal of these internship teams is to be extensions of the staff and champions of the ministry!
  • All internships are unpaid and require approximately 10-15 hours a week, with at least part of that commitment during daytime hours which could conflict with your class schedule or other obligations. It is vitally important that you prioritize these time commitments in your weekly schedule if you are invited into one of these internships.
  • The ideal commitment for all internships is the entire 2021-22 school year.

College Leadership Expectations

      The expectation for both Group Leaders and Interns is that Port City Community Church would be your church home. Making Port City your church home looks like attending Sunday Gatherings consistently and growing as a real champion of our church. This expectation is not to exclude anyone; rather, we have learned over the past few years that, to get the most out of your involvement and to pour the most into your leadership, it is crucial for your involvement to be focused, going deep in one place instead of being spread thin in multiple places. 

If you are ready to serve in some amazing ministries, learn from some incredible people in our church, grow in your walk with Jesus through consistent encouragement and challenge, and develop into the leader God has designed you to be, we would love for you to apply!

Check out our College Leader Interest Meeting from 3/16 if you’d like to hear more about these opportunities!

      Applications are due on or before Wednesday, April 7th!
