2 San Juan StreetBoston, MA 02118



"BETA" (Boston Emmanuel Training Academy) is Emmanuel Gospel Center's semester program for unpaid Interns, Associates, and Fellows. Participants in the BETA program are referred to as BETAs.

BETAs specializing in research projects are called Research BETAs and may work with any EGC program leader or with the Applied Research and Consulting team.

BETA was developed in 2015 to recruit, hire, train, and manage interns who will contribute to EGC’s research streams. Three times each year, in sync with academic semesters, ARC selects a cohort of three to eight people. The BETA cohort is initially oriented and trained together and will continue to track each other’s progress through group meetings and research collaborations. By the end of the semester, each intern has learned new skills, completed several research goals, and gained an understanding for how his or her work directly supports EGC’s mission of strengthening Christian leaders to serve urban communities.

Ideal BETA Candidates demonstrate:

  • strong work ethic and professional attitude

  • passion for ministry and/or social action in the city

  • respect for diversity and growing cultural competency

  • openness to working in a faith-based environment

BETA Qualifications

College or graduate students, recent grads, or professionals looking for urban ministry or research work experience are welcome to apply to the BETA program.

To further qualify as an associate-level BETA, the applicant demonstrates that they possess substantial training, work experience, or life experience that will help them to advance to more challenging tasks with less instruction.
