Ministry Internship

Ministry Internship Overview

A ministry internship with an ordained elder is an ordination requirement and must be completed prior to ordination (Manual paragraph 426.3).
The Basics
  • Eligibility begins upon completing 18 or more Course of Study courses
  • Register with the Coordinator and pay $140 administration fee
  • Under the authority of an ordained elder:
                                                Complete a self-assessment
                                                Develop a learning covenant
                                                Provide the Coordinator with the covenant and written updates
              Completion of a supervised ministry experience through a Nazarene seminary or
              university degree program will generally meet this requirement.
