New Hope Christian College

Practicums

New Hope Christian College students will serve alongside seasoned leaders, gain hands-on ministry experience and leadership, and intensive training while building community with like-minded individuals. Areas of training will include Evangelism, Edification, Equipping, and Extension.

Receive real-world, hands-on ministry training and experience in a college that values intimacy over industry, encounter over entertainment, presence over presentation, people over position and Jesus above everything.
