This course provides the practical hands-on component to the Diploma program. In this section, the student is expected to participate in 50 hours of ministry practicum at an approved ministry setting—local assembly, institution, or another place of ministry. This practical course is designed to enable students to start or continue to refine their call to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19). The framework of field education will require the student to develop a strategy for missions that is demonstrative of the integration of practice and theory. Students will be encouraged to situate their work within the context of their social environment. Field Education will also require the student to participate in at least four seminars, and read supplemental material.
