MTI believes that preparation for ministry takes place both in the classroom and in the field of service. It is vital to link theory and practice. Instead of learning taking place only in the isolation of the classroom, MTI supports learning happening within the community of faith as the student ministers in a ministry context and reflects on that experience. Pastoral Studies students will participate in a year-long Servant Leadership Internship Program. Throughout the year, students will be exposed to and participate in ministry opportunities centered on evangelism, counseling, missions, and ministry operations.
