Mentored Ministry - Hamilton Campus
A Message from Dr. Pendleton:
The classroom is the location for preparation and planting. The congregational and/or ministry setting is the place for growth and development. It is impossible to separate these two elements of preparation for ministry. Theory without praxis results in little more than stored information and practice without a sound theory is little more than experimentation. Mentors in real-life settings help make the difference in the lives of men and women who are learning to do the work of the ministry. Mentors not only observe the performance of ministry but have the opportunity to shape the character of students, which is absolutely vital. We in Mentored Ministry are here to help facilitate these kinds of ministries and relationships for our M.Div. and MAEM students in every way that we can. To this end we pray that you will make the most of your opportunity to engage in Mentored Ministry. Welcome!
