NNU’s School of Theology & Christian Ministries was awarded a $92,928 grant from the Murdock J. Charitable Trust’s ‘Vision and Call’ program to provide STCM graduates a salary to serve a ministry internship in local congregations.

Dr. Mark Maddix, dean of the School of Theology and Christian Ministries, said, “We are honored to receive the grant because interns are mentored by an experienced pastor while completing a master’s degree. This partnership between the University and the local church helps interns develop knowledge and skills in ministry.”

Associate Professor of Youth and Family Ministries Dr. Michael Kipp says, “The grant provides interns, during a gap period between graduation and full-time ministry, an opportunity to learn about ministry in a supportive environment–something that has proven to help shape future leaders for the Church.”

This is the second “Vision and Call” grant received by the School of Theology & Christian Ministries from the M. J. Murdock Trust.  Applications are currently being received for internships for 2014-2016.
