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 bookbound. STUDENT PASTORS who are enrolled in SM 601C will not use this handbook but will use the handbook titled, SUPERVISED MINISTRIES SM 601, SM 602 - STUDENT PASTOR. An addendum of this handbook is the EXTENDED CASE GUIDELINES (Some professors may also use the text CASE BRIEF GUIDELINES). The self- referent case study based on our EXTENDED CASE GUIDELINES format is the basic learning instrument for courses in supervised ministries.
