The LAMP Program includes 6 “Ministry and Life Experience” (MLE) courses. These courses are designed to give students credit for their ministry involvement in the local church while going through the LAMP program, and are a requirement as they progress in their studies. This component is one of LAMP’s values of training.
We have compiled some examples of how our students are completing their involvement for their ministry and life experience courses. There is a wide variety of student ministry involvement in areas such as campus outreach, family and children’s ministry programs, youth leaders, intermittent preaching, Elders, and Deacons.
