A part-time ministry internship serves as the capstone experience for the M.Min. program. This mentored and evaluated ministry experience under the direction of a qualified field mentor takes place following all program course work. This experience lasts approximately eight weeks, and the requirements include:
  • Developing a personal philosophy of ministry
  • Weekly journal to evaluate personal ministry strengths and weaknesses
  • Reading reaction papers
  • Teaching observation, planning, experience, and self-evaluation
  • Individual mentor/mentee relationships
  • Leadership development and observation
The program director will work alongside you to craft a meaningful internship experience. The field mentors are required to complete a training and equipping session to ensure that course objectives are met and that you have a rich and profitable experience.
