This program offers on-the-job training, small interaction groups, class instruction, and mission work. It is a time of learning by doing, and a time for the student to gain valuable experience in their respective field of ministry. In the School of Practical Ministry program, students are divided into small interaction groups (IAG) which meet weekly. The small group setting allows each student to take part in the discussion and gain practical experience in ministry.

Instruction in the Word of God continues throughout the second year. Students will study courses such as New Testament Survey, Missions, Acts:  Power of Supernatural Living, Leadership and many more. The importance of God’s Word in our life is continually stressed as the areas of practical ministry are explored.

There is a possibility of a mission trip during the second year program. We feel that mission work is a very valuable part of the student’s training. The students learn how to function as a team often in a foreign culture and in unfamiliar surroundings. They can often learn how to share the gospel and give a sermon through an interpreter. These are life-changing experiences. Even if a person never plans to go on the mission field, it will give them a world vision and an understanding of how to help those who do.
