Gain practical experience while completing your final year at Liberty University. If you’re a student in our Christian Leadership & Church Ministries department, you could spend your senior year working at an approved host church or parachurch ministry.
After you apply and are accepted into the Ministry Fellowship, you will partner with an approved site where you will work under the mentorship of an experienced ministry professional. Although you will be off campus, you will retain your residential status at Liberty and complete your remaining undergraduate courses online or through independent studies.
Church hosts will cover your housing, utilities (including internet), and transportation to their ministry’s site. You are responsible for your moving costs, program fees, and food. Participating students save approximately $8,000 per year on expenses.
Submit an inquiry to the Director of Experiential Learning your freshman or sophomore year.
Initiate contact with one of the Approved Fellowship Sites below or a new site you have selected that meets the requirements for the Ministry Fellowship Program.
If you choose a new site, that ministry must first go through the application process and be approved before you can apply for participation in the program.
Apply to the program during the fall or spring of your junior year.
After accepted, arrive at your church host site no later than August 1.
When your Ministry Fellowship ends on May 1, return to Liberty University for graduation.
Reminder: Our program does not place you into your site. Before applying, you will need to contact a site supervisor from one of the approved sites below or from another site you have selected that meets the requirements for the Ministry Fellowship Program. New sites must be approved through our site application process before you apply.
