Shatin Anglican Church offers the Ministry Apprentice Scheme to provide an intensive training in gospel ministry for those showing leadership potential. It combines Biblical and theological training with hands-on ministry experience alongside a member of the staff team in an international church setting.
The main components of the scheme are:
1. Mentoring and supervision by a church staff member – the apprentice will meet with his mentor to help him grow in his ministry.
2. Formal theological training – the church will provide funding for the correspondence course offered through Moore College, Australia and will allow time for him to meet with a group of people who are doing the course in Hong Kong. In partnership with a few other churches in Hong Kong, STC will provide other practical training opportunities.
3. Practical ministry – the apprentice will gain significant ministry experience in a few areas of ministry, which could include children’s, youth, young adults, pastoral care, discipleship, etc.
4. Funding – the apprentice will receive a stipend of $12,915 HKD per month.
STC will require the associate to commit to serving for one or two years on a full time basis. We are accepting applications for 2021-2022 right now. Contact Niels for more information.
