At THS. you won’t have to wait until you graduate to start gaining valuable experience in the field.
You’ll understand what it takes to be in ministry from day one - so there won’t be any surprises.
Jesus spent three years building his ministry. At your apprenticeship, so will you. You’ll work closely with a designed Supervisor from your Placement Church over the course of your time at THS.
What Will It Look Like?
Jesus gave the disciples practical tasks to do while they followed him. This caused them to grow and be fruitful. If they had not stepped out of their comfort zones, they would have never come home rejoicing at the miracles that God accomplished through them. Each trimester, you’ll have a variety of challenges to choose from to help you become bold in your faith and develop the nine disciplines:
- Visit a person at the hospital and pray for them.
- Develop a budget for your finances.
- Write a press release for the media on behalf of your church.
- Organize a short retreat with your church staff.
- Exercise 12x per month and eat a healthy meal.
- Complete a 5-day silence and solitude retreat.
Proverbs 15:32 says “Those who disregard discipline despise themselves, but the one who heeds correction gains understanding.” Your Supervisor is there not only to support you, but also provide valuable insight into your growth process. The evaluations in our 3x3 Apprenticeship between you and your Supervisor will allow for times of teaching, encouragement, and direction. The most effective spiritual leaders are the ones who are humble enough to recognize growth is always ahead of them.
