SOM Tracks provide students with a practical, hands-on mentorship approach to growing a life of ministry. The purpose of Tracks are to support the direction/calling a student would like to cultivate during their time at SOM.
Throughout the course of the two year program, a student will be required to commit to a Track led by a Track mentor. Discipleship is an integral part of the vision of the school. Therefore, the role of the mentor is to develop a practical and individualized ministry course, as well as cultivate an environment for greater spiritual growth.
Whether the desire is to serve in a church environment, mission field, business world, or simply to grow in one’s walk with the Father, SOM Tracks provide discipleship for a life of serving Jesus and bringing the Gospel to the world.
Students will need to commit to two semesters in one Track. After that, the student has the option to change Tracks if they so desire.
