Each student will be expected to travel at least once during the school year, as part of a ministry team with one of NWSSM’s associated ministers. Travel expenses will be paid by the school, meals will need to be provided by the student. (Most of these trips will be within driving distance of the Longview/Kelso/Rainier area and carpooling will be organized.)
SERVING IN YOUR HOME CHURCH
Students will also be expected to serve three hours a month in different capacities within their home church. These hours will be based on ministry interests that the student has and will give opportunity for growth (This will be coordinated with the student’s pastor and/or staff). Students will also be assigned to work in the Lower Columbia Healing Rooms ministry during the school year.
EVERY student will need to have a release form signed by their home pastor. This form gives the pastor’s approval for the student to attend the school and that the student is in good standing with their home church and pastor. This also explains to the pastor, that the vision of the school is for the student to continue being a healthy member of THEIR local church and that NO proselytizing shall take place.
Pastors, yes you would lose this servant leader on Wednesday nights for 9 months but they will come back with an education and a better understanding of serving for the rest of their lives!
