Supervised Year in Ministry

All students in the MDiv and MAMC degree programs are required to enroll in the Supervised Year in Ministry Program (SYMP) for a minimum of 10 hours per week.

We intentionally prepare students to be leaders, critical thinkers & effective practitioners of the Christian faith within their denominations & local congregations. Through a sustained collaboration between the seminary instructors, lay people in the ministerial setting & seasoned mentors over the course of a full academic year, the SYMP offers an opportunity for students to experience the full range of deep theological reflections & disciplined spiritual practices."
