Who Should Attend the School of Women in Ministry?
This training program is geared to women of committed Christian faith who desire to be better prepared and equipped to serve well within their local church or a para-church organization.
This training program has some flexibility; however, in order to graduate, students need to commit to:
- Attend the six class dates
- Read assigned texts (honours program requires additional readings)
- Complete all assignments (honours program requires additional assignments)
- Develop and complete an internship project
The learning environment is supportive and each student is assigned a teacher’s assistant to review progress and provide feedback on written assignments. The assignments are usually short (500 to 1,200 words) and often use a personal context. Women keen to immerse themselves in deeper study can choose to enter the ‘honors option’ whereby they complete additional readings and and assignments for credit.
