Practice in Ministry and Mission

Contextual education at Wesley prepares graduates to minister effectively in culturally diverse settings.  The Practice in Ministry and Mission Program (PMM) coordinates churches and other ministry training venues as PMM sites and facilitates the placement of theological students at approved sites.  It also facilitates Intercultural Immersions for students both locally and globally.


Full-time Summer Internships

Full-time summer internships will be in session in 2015. PMM students looking to do PMM in summer 2015 must have all of their solidification materials submitted for approval to the PMM office by March 1st.
