The internship process at Bethel Seminary St. Paul is designed to help you identify God’s calling for the other end of seminary and how best to get there.
The internship program is woven into the course curriculum. The director of supervised ministry links arms with our formation department to provide you with opportunities for mapping out an effective internship plan.
The internship experience involves working in a paid ministry position where you’ll immerse yourself in hands-on learning. As the process unfolds, you’ll connect with your on-site supervisor and ministry support team to help you assess your progress.
- 600 supervised ministry hours for M.Div. and M.A. in Ministry Practice in a paid position
- Supervisor mentoring sessions (at ministry site)
- Ministry support team meetings
Evaluation and Reflection
Towards the end of the internship, all students take part in intentional reflection and evaluation to process what they’ve experienced. We’ll review key formative insights and help you set goals for what you’d like to pursue after graduation.
