Student Ministry is vital to a student’s education. It takes students from the classroom and gives them opportunity to put
into practice what has been learned. It also provides area churches and community programs or organizations with a task
force of trained personnel. Students are required to complete Student Ministry for graduation from each program.
In addition, each BRE graduate is required to complete an internship. Under the direction of the concentration chair,
students are assigned to a local pastor, some other full-time ministry professional, or a community organizer for a field
based internship. Experience is gained in various ministry and work-force related activities.
While the students’ learning experience is important, the overall goal of Student Ministry is to expose our students to
local ministry opportunities, requiring them to step out of their comfort zones and participate in something they may not
typically do otherwise. Participation in Student Ministry gives students an opportunity to develop a passion out of the
experiences that they did not know existed and ultimately to shape their vocational direction. Another goal of the program
is to edify the body of Christ and share the love of Christ with others.
• To serve God and other people.
• To promote the discovery and development of ministry skills and spiritual gifts through service.
• To provide the student with supervised ministry training, accountability, and evaluation.
