Do you wonder if you're called to ministry? Do you aspire to serve others through the local church? Are you considering full-time or part-time ministry? Consider applying for the Aspire Program. Aspire is Temple's ministry intern program for individuals who are sophomores in college or older. 

The Apostle Paul wrote these words to his friend and fellow pastor, Timothy, “Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task.”(1 Tim 3:1) The word for aspire in the Greek is ὀρέγοuαι, which means to reach out after or long for. An aspiration for ministry is a noble longing, one that the local church is responsible for identifying, equipping, and sending. This is the idea behind the Aspire Program. We desire to allow men and women to serve in a supervised ministry context, getting practical ministry training.
