This externship will allow students to develop and implement a worshipful, educational, or advocative justice initiative in an experiential learning environment that offers real-world insight into theoretical topics learned in the graduate certificate.
SIGNIFICANCE FOR LIFE AND MINISTRY:
Students will contemplate, through the first-hand experience, what God’s justice looks like in a community environment or occupational setting.
