A volunteer minister of helps (e.g., as a greeter, usher, Sunday school assistant, youth worker, nursery attendant, etc.), or;
A paid staff member
Students are expected to serve a minimum of 72 hours during each of their 9-course programs of study. Ministry practicum hours must be valid volunteer work sanctioned by the student's local church providing training for the student and helping that church. Functioning in a paid ministerial capacity at that local church also qualifies. This service, verified by a church leader, earns the student 3 credit-hours. It does not include any ministry independent of a local church.
Students must properly document their ministry practicum hours throughout the school year on a ACTS University Ministry Practicum Activity Log in order to receive the school credit.
