Northwest Nazarene University’s School of Theology & Christian Ministries was recently awarded a $105,600 grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust’s Vision and Call Program to provide students of the STCM’s graduate program a salary as they intern at local congregations.

NNU Associate Professor of Youth and Family Ministries Dr. Michael Kipp says, “We are delighted to have received this grant! It represents an opportunity to shape future leaders for the Church through further education, church-school partnerships, and personal and professional accountability.”  Often this time is considered a “gap period” when a student earns their graduate degree and then enters full-time ministry.

“The combination of being mentored by an experienced pastor, serving in ministry and completing a master’s degree provides the intern with an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills of ministry,” confirmed Dr. Mark Maddix, dean of the School of Theology and Christian Ministry at NNU.  “This is a great partnership that NNU can now offer congregations in the Treasure Valley.”
