SCHOOL OF CHURCH PLANTING & LEADERSHIP (CHR 233-234)

WHAT IS THIS SCHOOL ALL ABOUT?

The School of Church Planting and Leadership (SCPL) is a school whose Lecture Phase is built on four pillars:
• Church Leadership: Understand the calling and the Shepherd role of Church ministers
• Church Planting: Understand the key models and methods of Church Planting
• Church Renewal/health: Understand the principles that foster church renewal and transformation
• Church Growth: Understand the strategies and principles that govern church growth

The SCPL Internship is a special “attachment” to a ministry chosen by the student, in any country, where the following can be achieved:
• 25 hours of contact with ministry per week (full time interns).
• 25 hours of ministry preparation per week (full time interns only).
• Exposure to ministry leadership activities (in a mentoring relation).

The half-time Internship program is stretched over 24 weeks instead of 12, and requires 12½ hours of contact and the same amount of time for preparation.
