- Personal Discipleship - Beyond the classroom, you will meet regularly with a pastor. During this time, you will be able to
discuss personal challenges and seek pastoral insight. The focus of this time will be pastoral. You will be able to be transparent about your struggles and life issues. You can expect
gentle rebukes, patient corrections and motivating encouragement to continue abiding in Christ. Time will be spent seeking God together in prayer for His help to walk with Him.
- Fireside Discussions - Every week you will get together for an evening to discuss a theological position, philosophical
ministry model, or cultural concept. A leader will introduce the topic and then facilitate a dialogue with the students. This time will be casual, conversational, and relational in a
non-classroom setting. You will develop the art of thinking biblical through topics, learning from peers, and articulating your thoughts in a humble and mutually edifying manner.
- Ministry Mentorship - Just as Jesus used ministry as opportunities for teaching, in the Apprenticeship, you will learn as you
walk alongside of your mentor: observing, asking questions, and dialoging about ministry. As trust is developed between you and your mentor, the level of partnership and leadership will
naturally increase. Many students will be given the freedom and guidance to lead various aspects of ministry.
- Prayer Partners - In addition to the Apprenticeship staff and your mentor(s) praying for you, we want to help connect you to
prayer partners who will commit to praying for you during the duration of the program. We want our whole program to be saturated in prayer. You will provide your prayer partners with
regular updates so that they can pray more specifically for you and be blessed with how God is answering their prayers.
