Course Memo

The Ministry in Context series is designed to expose Master of Divinity candidates to the basic, various, and complex areas of ministry in a congregation and beyond the congregation, through time-limited direct observation and hands-on practice. Students are provided with opportunities for exposure to the broad and complex areas of ordained ministry. Through the exposure that Ministry in Context provides and the reflection sessions with the supervising pastor and the lay committee, the student will have the opportunity to reflect on their developing sense of God’s call to the ordained role. The Ministry in Context series at PLTS extends over two academic years. The student is placed in a parish for 2 semesters and in various para-church organizations for the final semester for six hours weekly. [Prerequisite: FE-1145 Ministry in Context I.]
