“What I learned this summer–about ministry, about myself” – MIP

& Student Speakers, University Chapels.

Erika Bollman, Rose Jantzi and Jossimar Diaz-Castro share from their participation in the Ministry Inquiry Program this past summer.

The Ministry Inquiry Program is an exciting opportunity of Mennonite Church USA for college-age young adults to explore pastoral ministry. The program offers the opportunity to experience first-hand what ministry is and to test your own gifts and sense of call. Participants work under the supervision of a pastor and are involved in many aspects of a minister’s life and work. For some students, an overseas assignment can be considered.

The Ministry Inquiry Program also offers pastors and congregations a specific way to be involved in helping students experience leadership in the church. Pastors serve as mentors and examples. Students learn by both observing and doing.
