Would you like to partner with God and others to bring restoration, healing and wholeness to the nations? People of all cultures experience the pain and suffering that comes from living in a broken world. Whether that brokenness is within the individual, the family, the culture or the nation, healing is a crucial part of the discipleship process.


You will begin with three months of classroom experience that utilizes teaching, discussions, small group sharing, ministry practice, personal reflection, worship and prayer. You will be able to develop and apply your skills in the context of the safety and support of your FBC community. The experience is designed to challenge and invite a deep movement into authentic relating and ministry to others as you are led by the Holy Spirit.  The field assignment, taken the following quarter,  will provide enriching cross cultural opportunities and challenges  as you work with your team to facilitate healing, restoration and wholeness.
