Mentored Ministry

Preparing students well for 21st century ministry requires the integration of theory and practice. Mentoring removes the artificial character of integrating theory and practice in a classroom and situates learning in real-life contexts of ministry.

Mentored Ministry is a Gospel-guided relationship between an experienced pastor and an emerging pastor/leader, focusing on the development of ministry and leadership skills with a holistic view toward spiritual and emotional health while the mentee is actively doing ministry under the mentor’s supervision.
