2. Pastoral Ministry internships provide ministry leadership experiences in a congregation in which students are able to deepen pastoral identity and develop ministry practices, and are typically completed in the summer after students’ second year of seminary as a ten-week, fulltime ministry assignment (400 hours, 4 credits). Students desiring a longer term pastoral ministry experience in a congregational setting or specialized ministry setting (e.g. campus ministry, chaplaincy, church planting, community development, or international missions) may explore these options for completing this internship with the Director of Mentored Ministries.

3. Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) provides ministry opportunities in approved institutional or church settings together with professional supervision and intensive peer group reflection. CPE can be completed concurrently during the school year or over the course of a summer. (4 credits)

Internships – MA (2 credit hours)

MA internships assist students in understanding how God is molding them spiritually, personally, and professionally through their seminary studies, work of ministry, and area of specialization. The primary consideration in the selection of an internship is the student’s area of specialization (worship, missions, education, pastoral care, etc.). Ordinarily, students will have completed 18 semester hours of course work before beginning an internship.

1. Specialized Ministry Internships provide students with a ministry experience that immerses them in a ministry context which provides the student with a significant leadership opportunity in the area of their ministry specialization. This internship requirement may be met via a part-time internship during the academic year or a 5 week full-time internship during the summer (200 hours, 2 credits).

2. Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) provides ministry opportunities in approved institutional or church settings together with professional supervision and intensive peer group reflection. M.A.

students specializing in Pastoral Care especially are advised to explore this option for completing their internship requirement. CPE can be completed concurrently during the school year of over the course of a summer (2 credits for internship and 2 hours of course credit).

3. Cross-cultural Internships provide opportunities to explore the contextual nature of ministry and are typically completed in the summer after students’ first year of seminary as a five-week, fulltime ministry assignment (200 hours, 2 credits).

2015-2016 Academic Catalog |CALV IN THEOLOGICA L SE MINARY 36 Course Connections The following courses are intentionally interdisciplinary, teaching students to draw on their work in a variety of fields when they approach particular ministry challenges. These courses intersect with the Mentored Ministries program in mutually enriching ways.

"This class offered me chances to think about practical ministry questions and situations through the glasses of church history, systematic theology, and Scripture itself. The professor also helped us realize just how much we have learned in these last three years." Third-year student in a Capstone Course Theological Education as Formation for Ministry intentionally engages in the process of spiritual • formation so that habits developed through theological education will form students for ministry.

(MDiv, MA) Evangelism and Cross-Cultural Ministry introduces models of personal and congregational • evangelism, models of contextual ministry, and skills necessary for cross-cultural ministry; and teaches how to write and communicate faith stories for evangelistic purposes, present the gospel individually and corporately, conduct evangelistic Bible studies, and lead a congregation to the best model(s) of outreach for its context and to church planting.

Leadership in Ministry equips students to provide effective pastoral leadership in forming • communities of disciples. It integrates a biblical theology of leadership with personal reflection, discernment of contexts, and practical leadership skills. It also includes a unit on Reading Ministry Contexts, which provides students with basic perspectives and tools for analyzing a congregation and serving as its pastor. Students are prepared to discern a call to a specific ministry setting and to minister wisely in that context. (MDiv)
