1 Field Ministry BCO7900 Mentored Counseling Internship Application Form Purpose Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary believes that theological education is best done in partnership with the local church. Students gain helpful ministry experience under the mentorship of a qualified practitioner in a church or para-church organization. Students learn to serve the local church and fulfill the Great Commission as they put their academic education into practice. Mentor Requirements 1. The Mentor must have significant experience (i.e., minimum of five years in field of study) and wisdom in the ministry area the student is studying. In addition, he or she must have obtained a minimum of the Masters degree in the field in which the student will be supervised from an accredited school. (n.b., Only on rare occasions are Southeastern Faculty and Staff considered for approval and should therefore not be considered as potential Mentors.) 2. The Mentor must be willing to mentor/train the student in a way that honors and does not contradict Southeastern s confessional documents: the Abstract of Principles, the Baptist Faith and Message (2000), the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy and the Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. The Field Ministry Office must have a signed copy of the Affirmation of Southeastern s Core Competencies and Confessional Statements on file for each approved mentor. These confessional documents and statements can be found at: 3. The Mentor must complete the online training and submit a current resume to the Field Ministry Office to be certified as a Mentor. This certification must be updated every three (3) years. 4. The Mentor must have read (or be reading) all of the assigned materials for the class. 5. The Mentor must be willing to read and evaluate all work assigned to the student as well as complete periodic evaluations of the student during the mentorship/internship. 6. The Mentor must be willing to mentor the student in weekly meetings and counseling ministry through the duration of the internship. This includes the development of a schedule of readings and assignments and offering guidance and instruction. 1 F i e l d M i n i s t r y M e n t o r e d C o u n s e l i n g I n t e r n s h i p A p p l i c a t i o n

5 Open Letter to Mentor Dear Mentor: Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! You have been requested as a Mentor for one of our students at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Each student is required to have a field ministry experience as part of their degree. Southeastern believes that your role in the life and ministry preparation of our students is vital. Paul instructs Timothy, What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also (2 Tim 2:2, ESV). Southeastern s mission is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the Church and fulfill the Great Commission and we are grateful for the opportunity to partner with you to accomplish this mission. To that end, I want to make you aware of what is expected of a mentor so that you can make an informed decision. First, the Mentor must have significant experience (i.e., minimum of five years vocational ministry experience) and wisdom in the ministry and have obtained a minimum of the Master of Divinity degree from an accredited seminary or a Masters degree in the field in which the student will be supervised. Second, the Mentor must be willing to teach in accordance with and not contrary to Southeastern s confessional documents: the Abstract of Principles, the Baptist Faith and Message (2000), the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy and the Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (these documents can be found on our website ( Third, the Mentor must be willing to help develop and supervise the student in counseling ministry for a minimum of 12 weeks. This will include formally evaluating the student s progress and making suggestions. Finally, the Mentor will assign and discuss reading assignments relative to the mentorship. With that in mind, I want to encourage you and thank you for your willingness to consider this opportunity to pour your life into this student. As you teach and model the life of a Christian counselor you are impacting the next generation of counselors! If I can be of any service to you or if you have any questions about the Mentored Internship, please do not hesitate to contact me. God bless. Servant of the King, Dr. Steven P. Wade Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology Field Ministry Coordinator 5 F i e l d M i n i s t r y M e n t o r e d C o u n s e l i n g I n t e r n s h i p A p p l i c a t i o n

Both the SEBTS requirements and the mentor s assigned reading must be included in the syllabus.

For example, a 4-5 page summary/analysis (3-4 page summary, 1-2 analysis) of the work(s). Due dates for this assignment should be reflected in a Course Schedule. MENTORSHIP The Mentor is responsible to set up counseling supervision meetings for each student. These meetings should generally be in person and equal no less than 15 hours of face-time over the course of the semester (i.e., 1 hour per week for 15 weeks). The schedule for these meetings should be reflected in a Course Schedule. COURSE SCHEDULE The Mentor (along with the student) must develop a schedule that covers the entire semester, including mentor meetings, topics and due dates for reading and other assignments as well as any significant events required during the field experience.
