As part of our full-time Ordinand and Youth Ministry programmes, students are required to be involved in ministry at a placement church. Placements are usually three but can range from two or at most four days a week as agreed between the student, church and college.
Students sometimes come to us with a firm idea of where they wish to be placed during their training. If you have a member of your staff team who would like to stay working with you during their training that can usually be arranged, subject to conversations with DDOs and the College.
Similarly, potential ordinands often contact us wanting us to find a placement church for them. This can often be a very good way for churches to find high quality staff, especially if they cannot afford a full-time staff member. If you are interested in having a student based with you for the duration of their training, please contact us to find out more regarding the specifics and costing of becoming a placement church – just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
