Student Leaders


We are so excited to officially open applications for College Leadership 2020-21!

      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! This opportunity is not for everyone. 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 significant impact on your life and in your personal leadership journey.

      While many of us feel ill-equipped or under qualified 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 qualified. So don’t stop here, keep reading!

      We know that the Overflow Intern Team and Community Groups are great places for college students to lead, but we also have many more leadership opportunities through our church- opportunities that may even be a better fit for you! So this year we are introducing more opportunities for more of you to serve, grow, and lead together as college students. Below we have more information about the opportunities that are open to you for next school year!

College Leadership has two tracks: INTERNSHIPS & GROUP LEADERSHIP.

(The ideal commitment for both is the entire 2020-21 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 are to be extensions of the staff and champions of the ministry! This year we have several new Internship opportunities that we are really excited about. Internship opportunities for 2020-21 include internships in Children’s Ministries, Middle & High School Ministries, and Overflow. As well as internships with our Port City Production Team- which serves the different ministries of our church including Overflow and Sunday Gatherings, and our Port City Welcome & Connect Team- which is similar to Overflow’s Host Team but for our Sunday gatherings.
  • All internships are unpaid and require approximately 10 to 15 hours a week. Internships require time commitments during day time hours which could conflict with your class schedule or other commitments.
  • It is vitally important that if you are invited into one of these Internships that you prioritize the time commitments in your weekly schedule.

Here some of the specific time commitments for the Internships:

-Children’s Ministry Internships: Sunday mornings (attending one service) & Wednesdays 3:00-5:00pm

-Middle School Internships: Wednesdays 3:30-9:30pm

-High School Internships: Sundays 3:30-9:30pm

-Overflow Internships: Tuesdays 3:30-9:30pm & Thursdays 3:30-5:30pm

-Production Internship: Mondays 3:30-5:30pm 

-Welcome & Connect Internship: Sunday mornings (attending one service)  & Wednesdays 3:00-5:00pm 


  • Group Leadership is an opportunity to lead students in their walks with God through small groups and community groups. Opportunities include leading students from elementary school, all the way up to college. 
  • All group leaders are unpaid and require roughly 5 to 10 hours a week, primarily one night a week leading your group and flexibility throughout the week as you reach out and connect with students in your group. 
  • Community Group Leaders for Overflow do need to be upperclassmen, entering their junior or senior year in college.

Here some of the specific time commitments for the Internships: 

-Elementary School Small Groups: Sundays at 9am, 11am, or 5pm 

-Middle School Small Groups: Wednesdays 6-9pm

-High School Small Groups: Sundays 6-9pm

-Overflow Community Groups: Thursdays 6-9pm

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 genuine champion of our church. This expectation is not intended 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 places and with 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 think you should apply!
