Gaining Real-World Experience
Your ability to fulfill your calling in ministry is dramatically increased when you undertake an internship while you are still in school. There's just no substitute for observing real people in counseling settings, assisting practitioners as they help those in need or working side by side with a pastor to help you understand the challenges of ministry. Internships like these also go a long way toward helping you find employment after graduation.
You can count on The Golden Hire Network and ORU's College of Theology and Ministry faculty to help you arrange internships closely aligned with your future career plans.
In recent years, our students have served the community by doing internships in:
- Tulsa hospitals
- Counseling clinics
- Para-church ministries
- Missions organizations
- Local churches
