New Tools Help Connect Student Interns and Teaching Congregations
Decatur, GA.— Columbia Seminary has two new tools to help connect congregations with student interns. For congregations interested in hosting a student for a pastoral internship, an interactive Church Information Form (CIF) is available now on the seminary’s Web site. Congregations submit the CIF electronically to apply for approval as a teaching congregation.
In January, current students will have access to a password-protected online catalog of CIFs from approved teaching congregations. The catalog, including internships for summer 2007 and for the next academic year, will be updated continuously as internships are approved by the seminary’s Supervised Ministry office.
To learn more about becoming a teaching congregation, go to www.ctsnet.edu. Click on Degree Programs, then Supervised Ministry. To ensure consideration as a teaching congregation, the CIF should be submitted by January 15. For more information, please contact Lee Carroll, director of supervised ministry, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Columbia Theological Seminary, located in Decatur, Georgia, was established in 1828 and is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
