.HammackDoug-150x150When I was young, many of my cohort shared my deep discontent. “Where are our mentors?
That was twenty-five years ago.

I determined when I was older and wiser that I would coach and mentor young leaders. I’m older now (and considerably wiser).
I’d love you to come intern with us.


steven parkerFor years I did not realize that my views of God, myself, and the spiritual life were hurting me. I just knew life wasn’t working. Doug and the NRCC community helped me reframe my understanding of the spiritual life, get unstuck, and to transcend some of my limiting assumptions.

I now have a larger picture of Reality. Our work has brought focus and effectiveness to my life, career, and spiritual journey.

A Christian church as troubled as ours calls for “all hands on deck.” When our community hears this call, the best we have to offer is our experience. If you’re a young leader taking up the challenge of restoring Christianity to relevance and health, our community has learned a lot:
– about reframing the Christian narrative.
– about starting churches.
– about creating communities of spiritual health.
– about personal health and ministry longevity.

Let’s talk.

We’re working with several local seminaries to be an authorized intern site. We’d love to work with yours. Personal mentoring is a big priority for us, as well as personal experience in all areas of church life.

There is a disturbing trend in seminaries. Fewer and fewer students plan careers in the church. And those who do, after doing an internship in a local church, often return to change their career plans.

Our hope is to challenge that trend among students who intern with us. If ministry is a fit for your life and passion, interning with us will give you the tools to chart a career path that will work for you.
