Ministry Coaching is an alternative to Internship for those who have at least two years of ministry experience. Apply for Ministry Coaching if you have recently been in or currently serve in full-time or significant part-time ministry, or if you completed an internship in an Ambrose undergraduate ministry program. The Coordinator of Field Education will assess whether your ministry experience qualifies for Ministry Coaching.
