Every year Emmanuel College students and faculty are invited to participate in worship leadership at a pastoral charge. Leadership could range from preaching, leading children’s circle or the prayers of the people. This event is concentrated in one presbytery each year and is usually held on the last Sunday in January or first Sunday in February. The purpose of the event is to expose upper-year Master of Divinity students to different pastoral and community environments, to help congregations develop greater awareness and connection to the work done by theological colleges, and to help support ministry students in gaining valuable experience. In the past we have received very positive feedback from pastoral charges and students.
Emmanuel Exposure 2015
Deadline: January 5, 2015
How it works:
Pastoral Charges who are interested in having a small team of students or a single faculty member participate in the leadership of their service on February 1, 2015 are asked to complete the following survey to identify their needs and preferences for an Emmanuel College guest: Exposure Pastoral Charge Survey. The survey must be completed before January 5, 2015. In the event that more pastoral charges make a request than we have available students and faculty, preference will be given to requests received first.
Emmanuel College students who are interested in participating are asked to complete the EC Student Survey by January 5, 2015. The ECSS will organize students into small teams so that worship planning and leadership is in collaboration. The ECSS will also organize an informal session if you want to brainstorm your worship ideas with others and discuss the scripture readings. Emmanuel students must be in good academic standing. Emmanuel College will reimburse students and faculty for mileage. In the event that more students apply than we have pastoral charges available, preference will be given to students who completed the survey first.
