Supervised Ministry 1

This unit incorporates learning experiences at a practical level as well as giving opportunity to reflect on both the practice and theory of ministry. This reflection occurs with both an appointed supervisor and mentor as well as the formal classroom situation. The mentoring would be with experienced ordained pastors or those in recognised specialist ministries. The unit requires a ministry placement, involvement in the process of mentoring and theological reflection with an appointed supervisor, study of the theory and the practice of pastoral ministry, mentoring and journaling, developing an initial personal ministry profile, and the legalities of pastoral ministry.
