Emerging leaders have a host of options when it comes to professional training and ministry education. Bible schools and seminaries of all types and sizes have long been a trusted resource for those seeking ministry training. In more recent years, ministry internship, Christian gap-year, and church residency programs have grown in popularity and there is increasing demand for more frontline training programs. But rather than choosing between the academic and ministry training environments, why not offer a model that includes the best of both? Doing this will set you apart as a training program and give your students more complete training to launch them into ministry and leadership.
