An apprenticeship is a hands-on immersion into the life of Christian ministry. MTS aims to help apprentices grow in three primary areas: conviction, character, and competence. This is done through Bible study, prayer, and hands-on practical ministry. During their time, apprentices will learn ministry, develop new skills, identify their own strengths and weaknesses in ministry as they grow in godliness. Apprentices are trained by an experienced pastor in a broad spectrum of ministry activities. Whilst ICM encourages full-time MTS apprenticeship, there is also opportunity for it to be done on a part-time basis. The MTS apprenticeship in ICM is worked out in conjunction with Immanuel Church, Dublin. MTS apprentices receive a scholarship or grant from ICM.
