The focus of this programme should be an emphasis on the types of tasks a leading pastor would have in a congregation. Specialized ministries should be optional aspects of the programme. Every effort should be made to involve the probationery minister in all the practical aspects of the ministry. A probationary minister will complete his probationary term under the oversight of a credentialed minister or mentor.
A probationer is required to participate in practical ministry over a 4 year period. Your mentor will use an evidence guide to assist you with building a portfolio of evidence.
