The 12 month training and mentoring program will be developed by Dr. Milton and Rev. Jones. The curriculum will include:
In-depth teaching on the core competencies from leading pastoral practitioners provided via asynchronous delivery on our learning management system (LMS).
Fellows create a carefully documented record of each month’s core competency area that is, then, used for discussion, theological reflection, and learning from senior fellows and supervisors.
Fellows bring their verbatim, readings, and reflections with them to think through a series of carefully crafted questions by supervisors, peers, and family members, respectively.
Appropriate pre-produced video teaching segments.
Monthly online cohort discussions provide an opportunity to learn in community with other fellows. Competencies are shaped in community under the guidance of a senior fellow.
Monthly, personal interaction with a senior fellow, like Dr. Milton, Dr. George Grant, or another qualified pastor-scholar.
Final project encompassing a pastoral response to a real-world church issue.
