The Goodwin Legacy Internship at Watson Grove Missionary Baptist Church is designed to offer an undergraduate/graduate student who feels called to pastoral ministry an opportunity to serve with a large, active, predominantly African-American congregation in an urban setting. The Goodwin Legacy Internship is named after Rev. Curtis W. Goodwin, Sr., who served as the senior pastor of Watson Grove from 1973-2011.

Because we view the internship experience as a serious effort in training future pastors, Watson Grove attempts to take a professional approach to the development of servant leaders. Interns are not assigned menial tasks. Rather, we see the intern as a student, an apprentice, and a staff member with specific responsibilities and training opportunities. Still Interested...?
