MINISTRY APPRENTICE TRACK
This track is a one year experience designed to expose emerging leaders to our 168 discipleship paradigm and provide them with discipleship teaching and coaching while they serve within a local church context. The goal of this track is to see interns grow in loving, following and becoming more like Jesus, while helping them move forward into the purpose for which they were created.
PASTORAL APPRENTICE TRACK
This track is a one year ministry experience intended to help pastoral ministry students clarify their vocational calling and gain pastoral experience in a local church. Apprentices in this track will receive discipleship teaching and coaching through our 168 Discipleship curriculum and be exposed to ministry within a local church context alongside one of our pastoral team.
This track seeks to help apprentices grow in knowing, following, and becoming more like Jesus, while helping them move forward in discerning their call to ministry.
This track is a one year experience designed to train aspiring storytellers to tell the story of Jesus in a digital world. Through a combination of hands-on learning and in class teaching, this track seeks to give interns the tools to help churches, non-profits, and other organizations use media and technology to help people encounter and enjoy Jesus.
In this track, we bring together discipleship teaching and coaching with practical, hands-on experience in learning how to use technology to serve in God’s Kingdom.
MINISTRY FOUNDATIONS TRACK
This track is a one year experience designed to deepen your love for God and accelerate your ability to know and follow Jesus. Through our partnership with MB Seminary, this track offers a ‘Continuing Education Certificate’ as well as a ‘Graduate Certificate’ worth 12 graduate level credits that can be counted towards a master’s degree program.
