The Carey Internship Model is based on four Key Relationships:
- The Intern
- The Church/Organisation
- The Supervisor
- Carey Baptist College
- Intentional ministry and leadership development in a vocational setting
- Degree level study in Bible, Theology, Mission and Ministry
- Supervision and mentoring by experienced practitioners
- Support and feedback from Carey’s Coordinator of Field Education
- Practical ministry experience and reflection on that experience
- Development of skills for the art of ministry
- Guided learning for the integration of theology, ministry and leadership
- A facilitated peer group to journey with
What do I need?
- A strong sense of call to train towards ministry vocation, or in an existing ministry vocation
- A church/organisation committed to your development and training
- An experienced and trained supervisor and mentor approved by Carey
- Enrolment in a Carey academic programme
- Approval of your intended study programme, ministry involvement and supervisor/mentor from Carey’s Coordinator of Field Education
Normally Internships are undertaken full-time over 3 years. Only in exceptional circumstances, and with the permission of the Coordinator of Field Education, can an Internship be considered on a part-time basis.
