Here’s a suggestion for how the urban trainee’s work might look
Sunday – Attend church service, will have some involvement and responsibilities in ministry. Lunch and afternoon with a church family
Monday – To include opportunities for personal study, supported by guided reading and videos. Personal outreach opportunities, including door to door, 1-1s, street evangelism
Tuesday – Experience of an existing church ministry e.g Toddlers Group, pastoral visiting etc. Opportunity for guided personal study
Wednesday- Day Off
Thursday – learning Hub day, opportunity to reflect on issues and events, pray as a group, 1-1 tuition and mentoring, discussion on theological issues, contextualized teaching and training from lead mentor. This would also include opportunities for the trainees to share what they’ve learnt. One trainee might pursue a specific module during the week and then lead a short seminar on the hub day. This is a great means of assessing progress, it encourages a sense of learning to pass on and teaching others is a great way of consolidating your own learning.
Friday – Guided personal study. Personal outreach, local church ministry experience e.g youth work
Saturday Family time, special events etc
