"My internship at Westside Reformed has been a great opportunity to experience much of the daily life of the pastor of a local church and to explore my calling to the ministry of Word and sacrament. One of the highlights of my time at Westside Reformed has been teaching through a portion of the Heidelberg catechism. It has been a blessing to be able to devote time to study the catechism and teach the wonderful, comforting, scriptural truths which are contained in it to the saints here in Cincinnati, OH."
ABOUT THE FIELD EDUCATION PROGRAM
Westminster Seminary California’s Field Education Program is designed to integrate on-campus studies with part-time ministry in local churches. Field education involves supervised hands-on ministry experience and opportunities for evaluation and reflection with mentors, peers, and professors, in which students are given opportunities to develop the skills and gifts necessary for effective ministry. The Field Education Program at WSC provides an opportunity for Master of Divinity students to gain practical ministry experience to which they can apply the information learned in the classroom. In this way the WSC curriculum seeks to balance intense Christian scholarship with practical ministry.BACK
