Church Internship Program
RTI offers biblical training that can be applied toward degrees at accredited institutions. RTI operates in a cohort-model that encourages learning and growth in a community-based environment.
Reach Training Institute (RTI) is a church-based, ministry training center based in Salem, Oregon (Salem Alliance Church), with a campus in Arlington, Washington (Smokey Point Community Church). As an educational partner of Crown College in St. Bonifacius, Minnesota, our goal is to develop highly-effective leaders through theological education and practical ministry experience for kingdom service, internationally and locally, at the lowest possible cost. While the RTI concept has its roots in identifying and training workers primarily for international service, the same heart applies to U.S.-based ministry workers.

have completed home service requirement
Goal #2 - To develop leaders who are prepared for broad kingdom impact within other organizations who:

have a global perspective and biblical worldview
