Where are Coaching4Christ based?

We work primarily in the Ballymena area during Sept – May, while in the summer months we travel around Northern Ireland doing summer camps and going on overseas trips.

What is the time commitment?

Our internship program is 3 days per week. This gives our interns an opportunity to work part time/continue with studies, and be able to support themselves financially.

Our working days range from 9 – 4pm, to 9 – 9pm depending on what coaching group you are assigned to in the evenings. 

Every intern will have at least one late night.

Will I get paid?

Our internships are voluntary posts, but we encourage you to involve your local church in this decision and ask for their support  (both in prayer and finances) throughout your internship.

We ask that your full internship fee be paid in full before your commencement date of Monday 7th September 2020.
