Internship Program

Are you passionate about addressing the moral and ethical issues of our day from a gospel-centered, kingdom-focused perspective? Do you desire to sharpen your leadership skills and equip yourself for the future? Then the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission’s Internship Program may be for you!

The ERLC offers two types of internships throughout the year:

  • Presidential internships – Presidential interns work closely with Russell Moore and other ERLC executive leaders in Nashville to contribute to the leadership, communications, and content strategy of the ERLC as the organization equips churches to address the major issues of our day.
  • Policy Internships – Policy interns work in Washington DC to support the ERLC’s efforts on policy and coalition work as the organization engages the public square from a gospel-centered vantage point.

If you are a college student, seminary student or young leader desiring to gain volunteer hands-on experience directly involved in issues that impact millions of people, then you should consider the ERLC Internship Program.

Internships are available for qualified leaders throughout the year in both our Nashville and Washington offices. The ERLC seeks to design each experience around the individual’s gifts and interests. To get a more in-depth look at our internship program, read this article.

  • Time frame of availability (spring, summer, fall, or longer)

Comments from former interns

This internship completely exceeded all expectations that I had. Joshua A.

I very much appreciate the opportunity to work along side the staff at ERLC. My time there was used to help focus my vision for ministry. Rob C.

My internship with ERLC was both a professional and spiritual place of growth for me in the ministry of communications. To this day, the staff probably doesn’t realize the impact they made in my life. They took time to invest in me as a college student called to ministry, encouraged me to press ahead in pursuing a seminary degree to better equip myself for ministry, and introduced me to a network of people in my field that have helped me grow and move forward in my career even today. Kaylan C.

Being in Washington and understanding how it works—going to meetings, working with other pro-family groups, and interacting with Congress—really showed me the importance of Christians actively engaging in the public square. Andy L.

I am grateful for my internship with you all. I learned about various issues that impact the world, and it opened my eyes to the great need of helping those in need. Josh D.
