Sunodía School of Ministry: Field Experience Program

 

Purpose

Sunodía Prayer Counseling ("Sunodía") aims to spread the message of the essential relationship between healing and discipleship. Additionally, it is to be instrumental in seeing prayer counseling become a regular part of the spiritual disciplines of churches in our community and beyond.

The Field Experience Program aims to train the Intern to be used by God in His work of healing the broken-hearted and setting captives free. The Intern's focus will be to assist others in finding and dealing with root causes of relationship problems and to co-labor with the Holy Spirit, expecting to see real change in the lives of those who come for prayer.

As the Intern experiences the process of God making people whole from the inside out, they will gain experience as a prayer counselor and a ministry leader. Their work will include supporting Sunodía, their church, and other community members. Under Sunodía's supervision, the Intern will learn about prayer counseling and gain valuable insight and experience in the day-to-day operations of a small charitable organization.

The Intern will gain insight which will round out their understanding of how they can be used in the helping profession that they have been studying.

Prerequisite

Candidates for the Field Experience Program must be accredited students in a graduate level university program.

Program

The Intern will be required to:

  • Create and present¬†a brief seminar on some aspect of healing or Christian growth.
  • Complete a volunteer project of their choice.
  • Contribute three to four blogs for publication on Sunod√≠a's website on topics of healing or Christian growth.
