The course Ministry Practicum 1 is the practical component of one of the Practical Theology electives in the MDiv programme. It is designed to run parallel to the latter and to facilitate practical application of, as well as theoretical reflection on its contents. For that reason, it does not require additional reading material. The practical ministry is done under qualified supervision that includes formal and informal assessment.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Design and conduct tasks in a selected field of Christian ministry
- Describe and assess expressions of Christian ministry in the selected field
- Demonstrate the ability to integrate theory and practice related to a specific field of Christian ministry
The course consists of a practical project requiring about 120 hours. This includes planning, conducting, assessment and reporting components, all done in close interaction with a qualified supervisor.
