Field-Based Mentored Ministry: Out of the Classroom & Into the City

“Mentored Ministry taught me how to demonstrate God’s love tangibly to those around us by showing compassion to the most vulnerable of God’s children. This has given me a better understanding of the challenges and triumphs of urban ministry.” Baffour Nkrumah-Appiah, M.Div.

Field-Based Mentored Ministry at the center for urban ministerial education focuses on the
interdisciplinary nature of ministry situated in the realities of the urban world and in the complex aspects of leadership.
