FORMATION FOR MINISTRY
 
Course Description:
Designed to provide vocational, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual support and direction to students who are seeking to fulfill their ministry purpose by defining or claiming more clearly the calling to which
they have responded. The formation model that is used for this class focuses upon social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, vocational, pastoral, and professional factors. These modules are designed to help
students discern, explore, and affirm the calling to which they are responding.

Formation for Ministry I (PT555) requires that all students complete a battery of forms/assessments prior to the first class meeting. All forms and assessments must be completed and e-mailed to formationforministry@vuu.edu.
