FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

ROGO School is a 12 month (January 2019  – December 2019) hybrid, unpaid internship where you gain real hands-on ministry experience while also working on your personal development. It is designed to equip and empower leaders to join the Sandals Church staff team or become ministry leaders.

You will spend part of your time learning about leadership, spiritual formation and theology from our senior leadership and part of your time working directly alongside our staff for hands-on ministry experience.

This application process can take between 3 to 4 months. The application process is different for each track but all will include:

  • An application period (9/1/18 – 10/10/18).
  • A panel interview.
  • A spiritual health assessment.
  • A background check.
  • Skills (being competent and agile).
  • Character (being mature and Christlike).
  • Relatability (being authentic and relationally adept).

There is no general tuition or program fee for ROGO School. You will, however, have to cover a few expenses during the course of the program. Payments will need to be made by January 11 (payment plans are available).

Below are some cost estimates:

  • February retreat: $350
  • Books/ Supplies: $100
  • Tests: $30

You will also need your own vehicle, computer and mobile phone. You will be responsible for securing your living arrangements and expenses.

15-25 hours a week—including both on-campus time (for meetings and other responsibilities) and independent time (for projects, studying and journaling).

It will be natural for your workload during ROGO School to vary as projects come and go. We understand that your life situation and availability may change as well and can work with you to increase or decrease your responsibilities accordingly. Throughout the program, we will encourage you to devote as much time as you can to being on campus and involved with the life of the church.

The ideal candidate will enter the program with a readiness to be real with self, a teachable spirit and a willingness to be deeply challenged. To be considered for the program, a candidate must:

  • Be a baptized believer in Jesus Christ.

Neither. While ROGO School will include some seminary-level course work; it is primarily intended to focus on leadership development in a ministry setting. The program has been created to help bridge the gap between seminary and the practical skills needed to successfully lead the Church.

Many of the participants in ROGO end up getting hired on staff full-time or part-time, temporary or permanent. There is no guarantee each ROGO participant will get hired but our hope is you become a leader in ministry at Sandals Church.
