mentored ministry overview
mentored ministry is a practical ministry program for students that complements the academic program in the classroom. it provides students with a hands-on, active, learning experience that integrates academic exercise with practical ministry in an observable and evaluative environment.
each semester, every student in the program teams up with a mentor from a local congregation serving in an area of ministry in which the student has an interest. throughout the semester, students, under the oversight of their mentor, serve helping to fulfill the mission, goals, and objectives of the ministry. at the end of the semester, students may elect to continue serving in the area of ministry, or they may select to serve in a different area.
