Each student will need to select a mentor for his or her internship courses according to the guidelines below. The same mentor may serve for one or all three internship courses (certificate level, license level, and ordination level), as the student desires. 1. The mentor will generally be the student’s senior pastor, a staff pastor, or other person designated by the pastor to serve in the role of mentor. The mentor must be a credentialed minister. 2. If the student is the senior pastor, the student should consult his or her sectional presbyter to assist in the selection of a mentor. In some cases, the presbyter may serve as the mentor, or the presbyter may appoint a neighboring pastor to serve in that role. 3. The mentor must not be closely related to the student. This not only promotes objectivity but broadens the student’s experience by giving him or her opportunity to learn from someone other than a close relative. 4. The mentor must be a Licensed or Ordained Minister. Licensed Ministers may serve as mentors to students seeking Certified credentials. Ordained Ministers may serve as mentors to students seeking any level of ministerial credentials. Certified Ministers are not eligible to serve as mentors in this program, unless a written exception is made by the district superintendent for a Certified Minister who pastors to mentor a student in the Certified level. 5. The mentor must commit to the time required in the Mentoring Manual for each course. This will involve weekly meetings with the student for twelve weeks and some additional time for monitoring the student’s progress. Where multiple students are studying the courses in study centers, some of these meetings may be group meetings while others will be on an individual basis.
