Two ministry internships are required! MIN 4991 and 4992 are required for graduation. They may be at the same location or different locations. However, if taken at the same location, the second internship must differ from the first. You must register separately for each internship even if you take them at the same location during the same semester.
Internships require a minimum of 100 hours each (50 hours per credit). The hours may include time spent in class or in preparing, praying, discussing anything pertaining to this internship. No more than eight hours can be logged in one day. Your focus needs to be on ministry and on making a difference in people's lives, not on getting by with the least amount of time or effort possible.
