Metro Atlanta Seminary’s Mentoring Program goes side-by-side with our Practicum Program. The mentor is there to provide counsel and direction to students while encouraging and assisting them in meeting their Practicum requirements
The Practicums are designed to enable the student to experience life in the ministry they feel called to by God. For the Pastoral Track you will be involved in teaching, preaching, worship, visiting the sick and walking alongside the ones left behind. In the Ministry Track you will interview leaders in various church and charitable organizations in an effort to understand how their programs got started, who do they serve and how it survives. You will also roll up your sleeves and and volunteer for the real experience of serving in the kingdom. For those leaders in the workplace, you will learn and experience among other things, ways you can bring Christ into your workplace and how to resolve conflict from a Christian perspective.
Working the hours required in your practicum involves learning ministry ingredients not covered in the formal teaching part of the the curriculum.
At this time Metro Atlanta Seminary offers students Practicum Tracks in three areas –
Generally chosen by students preparing for ordination, chaplaincy and those involved in leading and teaching in their local church.
Students who do not feel called to the Pastoral Track but do feel called to serve God’s people in a proactive way often pick this track. It introduces them to a number of various ministries found inside and outside the local church.
Your vocation is the working in the world. You desire to do a better job of dealing with the issues you face day to day in this world. What does serving God look like in this capacity? How can I be a better image bearer and how can I bring Christ to my workplace? That is what the Marketplace Track is all about.
