Truett Seminary to Hold Mentoring Seminar Nov. 10

Nov. 9, 1995

Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary will hold a mentor orientation seminar from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, in the seminary located at First Baptist Church of Waco.

The purpose of the orientation is to provide training for ministers, lay leaders or experts in various Christian ministry fields on effective mentoring of Truett seminary students.

A major emphasis of the educational process of the seminary is its mentoring program. Each Truett Seminary student is provided a significant role in a local church or Christian ministry, according to Stacey Houser, director of student life at Truett. The program is similar to an internship in which the student is under the leadership of a church leader or expert in a given field.

Students earn credit hours towards their master of divinity degree through the program.

During the orientation, Baylor University President Robert B. Sloan Jr. will speak on the vision of Truett Seminary. Other leaders during the seminar will be Dr. J. Bradley Creed, associate professor and associate dean of Truett; Dr. Bruce Corley, professor of Christian Scriptures at Truett; and Houser.

Ministers and church leaders interested in mentoring Truett students are invited to attend.
