Practicum and Apprenticeship Launch

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

September was an exciting month for Mannahouse and PBC as we launched our new Practicum & Apprenticeship programs for Fall Semester 2018.  Students now get the benefit of combining the hands on experience of a more traditional style internship with their current academic load to provide students with on the job training for post college opportunities.  

We believe that a critical part of a student’s development comes through their involvement in church life and encourage students to become faithful, active participants. Our motto is “training leaders in the church, by the church, and for the church,” and for that reason, a new job placement program is also being developed as a unique part of the Portland Bible College experience.

Through Mannahouse and Portland Bible College connections with churches across the country and around the world, pastors and ministry leaders will be able to inquire about available graduating students qualified for positions within their local churches.  Our goal is to prepare students with job ready skills, and provide opportunities directly within a student’s field of expertise upon graduation.
