How do I select Leadership and Ministry & Communications electives?
Students in the 2022 catalog or later will select their Leadership and Ministry Communication electives in consultation with an EML Leadership faculty member. Students must complete the MACL Elective Selection form in their first-year of student. All MACL students are encouraged to discuss their electives with faculty and their academic advisor using the form below. However, only those in the 2022 catalog are required to complete this form.
To schedule a meeting with one of the following EML Leadership professors, students should contact the EML department: firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-887-5130.
Should I do the Leadership Courses + Internship or Ministry Residency + Internship?
Those opting to do leadership courses and an internship will serve at a selected site in a volunteer or part-time capacity.
The Ministry Residency is limited to students serving in full-time vocational ministry. Those who opt to do the Ministry Residency will also register for a concurrent internship at their Ministry Residency site.
Both options require an application. Ministry Residency applications are due in January for the upcoming year (ex. January 2023 for Fall 2023). Those taking leadership courses plus an internship must submit an internship application the semester before starting.
