Mentored Ministry

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.

Ministry Preparation Contract
As part of the first course in practical theology, all Pastoral and General Master of Divinity students are required to complete a Ministry Preparation Contract in which they commit themselves to involvement in a local church, the completion of mentored ministry assignments, and the pursuit of personal growth in grace. This contract unites the Seminary and the local church in providing opportunities, support, and encouragement for students as they prepare for ministry. Progress in the completion of the commitments made in the Ministry Preparation Contract is monitored through an annual interview with the Dean of Students.
