This final summative project shall be of sufficient quality that it contributes to the practice of ministry as judged by professional standards and is useful for application in the student's ministry. The project shall demonstrate the candidate’s ability to identify a specific ministry topic, organize an effective research model, use appropriate resources, and evaluate the results. It should also reflect the candidate’s depth of insight in relation to ministry. Upon completion of the ministry project, there shall be an oral presentation and evaluation. The completed written project, with any supplemental material, shall be accessioned in the Maranatha library.
