CE311 Student Ministries Para-Church Internship

3 Credit Hours
A course designed to give the student “hands-on” experience. This course should usually be taken during the summer preceding the student’s senior year. It requires the student to be placed in an intern relationship with a veteran youth worker in a “like-faith” para-church organization. Working under the supervision of that youth leader, and still reporting to the course professor, the student structures the internship around an assigned checklist of experiences which includes counseling, teaching, preaching, planning, and discipling. Up to one quarter of the experience on this checklist will be host-defined according to the particular ministry hosting the internship. While working through this checklist, the student is required to invest a minimum of 15 hours a week for 8 weeks.
