The Propel Internship Summit is a Friday evening and all-day Saturday event that gives MNSOM internship students practical, hands-on information and experience for many of the assignments covered in the Certified and Licensed MNSOM internship.  The Internship Summit enhances the learning that students gain from their internship mentor. Students will still be required to write the reflection papers explained in the Internship Manuals.

This Summit is open to anyone wanting to participate whether they are in an internship or not. The pastoral topics covered are:

  • Hospital ministry
  • Funerals
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Weddings and rehearsals
  • Water baptism
  • How to pray for and encourage people who are seeking baptism in the Holy Spirit
  • Child dedications
  • When to move a person from the pastoral counseling to professional counseling
  • Planning and preparing pastor’s finances
  • Communion

Next year’s dates are January 29-30, 2021. Registration will likely open in November 2020. The button below will activate once registration is open.
