transforming culture-users into culture-makers

We exist to create Image-Centered design solutions for problems of the world to further the Kingdom.

Who We Are

As our generation flees from the Church, we desire to lead, bring them back, and do creative ministry inspired by outcomes, not tradition.


Created in God’s Image, freed by Christ’s saving work, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, Christians are endowed with creativity, intelligence, and intrinsic motivation to thrive.  The Coral Ridge Internship seeks to help maximize these aspects of our nature and apply it to various disciplines, making ministry not only the work of the local church, but the work of the universal Church.

A Summer you will never forget.

Coral Ridge Interns learn, grow, design, create, and change lives – both their own and those around them.

We Do

The Coral Ridge Internship allows interns to develop theories and implement methods behind Outcome-Based Ministry through a program called Cultivate.


Interns work as a team to design and execute programs for the poor and the widow – the vulnerable in our community.  In this way, we learn about love, grace, and justice while producing successful outcomes through careful research, design, and the Cultivate program.  At the end of the summer, interns walk away having created lasting programs and effective events that will cultivate the Kingdom vision of the Christian Church.

Where We Are

Hosted at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, the Coral Ridge Internship is in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, FL, just minutes from the beach.  By day, Coral Ridge Interns are changing lives and impacting communities through ministry design. By night and weekends, they are relaxing on the beach, enjoying Disney World, travelling to Miami, exploring the Everglades, or adventuring on the Atlantic Ocean.  There is a world of adventure to be found in South Florida.
