A biblical understanding of wisdom prevents us from separating knowing and doing, learning and practice. Wisdom unites the facets of knowledge, character, and skill. Mentored Ministry is designed to bring these facets of ministerial formation together under the supervision of an experienced mentor.
The links you find here provide the essential materials that you will need to get started in your mentored ministry responsibilities as a student or a mentor.
The Guide for Students is designed to give you an introduction to Mentored Ministry at Westminster, including requirements and step-by-step instructions to complete them. Print and sign the Ministry Preparation Commitment and mail to our office at the address below. M.Div. students will also need to print, sign, and mail the M.Div. Mentored Ministry Forms to complete a mentored ministry unit. M.A. in Biblical Counseling students will need to print, sign and submit the M.A. in Counseling Mentored Ministry Forms to complete the requirements.
The Guide for Mentors will help you understand the importance of the mentoring process. It also includes a step-by-step guide to mentoring a student in a ministry context. Mentors must complete either an M.Div. Mentor Application or an M.A. in Counseling Mentor Application. Click here for more information on, and an application to join, the Teaching Churches Network, a growing network of churches committed to partner in preparing individuals for Kingdom service.
The Office of Mentored Ministry publishes the Jobs in Ministry, an online posting of ministry opportunities. Submit a job posting or search for open part-time and full-time ministry positions.
