Special Programs and Opportunities

Mentoring and a year-long internship are required components of the studies in ministry minor.


Each student accepted into the studies in ministry minor will be paired with a mentor from the Holland and/or Hope community. This mentoring relationship will last two years. Mentors will be chosen in conversation with students, the director of the minor and the coordinator of mentoring and internships.

An internship is a required component of the studies in ministry minor. Ideally, this year-long internship is the culminating activity of the minor, which students take concurrently with a year-long capstone seminar, having completed all of their other minor coursework.
