Contextual Education and Supervised Ministry

Columbia’s Office of Contextual Education empowers students to seek out and create internship opportunities that ignite their passions for ministry. Students engage issues of faith and justice in a wide variety of settings, stepping out of their comfort zones and into leadership roles wherever their vocation leads them.

Students also develop skills for vibrant parish ministry through congregational internships in churches across the country and the world. We shape leaders who minister to diverse congregations, embrace many worship styles, connect the pulpit and politics, and bridge gaps between congregations and communities.
