A Covenantal Relationship: Self-Check
Respond to the questions below, or you may use this form to complete and email to the field educator at your intern’s seminary.
Have I given thought to my own supervision style? How do I see my role in this student’s formation for ministry? Am I open to trying new ways of mentoring this pastor-in-training?
Are there any background checks or any other legal considerations that must be addressed before the internship begins?
What can this congregation offer in the ways of fulfilling the learning covenant? Who are some persons who might serve on the mentoring team/site team? Why did this person(s) come to mind?
How will the congregation and I extend hospitality to this student (and family)? What are some steps that we can take together in making the stranger among us feel welcome?
