• This SUPERVISED MINISTRY HANDBOOK is your working guide and textbook for two semesters of field education. It serves for SM 601, SM 602, and SM 603. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep it in a separate three-ring binder, since it is not a book-bound. STUDENT PASTORS who are enrolled in SM 601C will not use this handbook but will use the handbook titled, STUDENT PASTOR HANDBOOK. • An addendum of this handbook is the EXTENDED CASE GUIDELINES LOCATED AT THE BACK OF THE STUDENT HANDBOOK . The self- referent case study based on our EXTENDED CASE GUIDELINES format is the basic learning instrument for courses in supervised ministries. This addendum provides you with the model format and instruction for good case writing. • SM 601, 602 The text Lay Leadership for Ministry Training is required for Courses SM 601 and 602 (not Student Pastors).
