Each summer the InMinistry Center hosts a new, incoming InMinistry MDiv cohort on the Andrews University campus. This 11-day event is required of all new students (the first Sunday and last Friday are for travel to and from Andrews). Attendance is mandatory up to the close of activities on the second Thursday evening. A number of key things occur during this event that are crucial to cohort formation and function:
Our rationale for all these activities during Orientation is to bond you as a team, a cohort of ministers who will support each other as you journey through ministerial formation in the years ahead. Consistently, this feature of the InMinistry MDiv is highly appreciated by all our participants. Attendance at orientation is required and necessary to begin the InMinistry MDiv journey.
