STEM: Short Term Experience in Ministry

Purpose
Short Term Experience in Ministry STEM is a GBUR program inaugurated in 2005, with a twofold purpose: (1)Provide a staff team to disciple students at the campus (2)Equip fresh graduates into mature Christian leaders to influence the church and society. It is geared towards giving young graduates an opportunity to serve God in the Church and society on a short-term basis (one year renewable once).

Need
(1)With the increasing of the number of higher learning institutions and GBUs in consequence, GBUR training secretaries were finding it difficult to effectively disciple the students. This is a bit easier for a campus staff living in close proximity to the students. (2)With our vision “to be agents of Godly transformation in church and society” there is a need for trained, mature Christian leaders to influence Church and society. STEM allows fresh graduates to undergo a rigorous discipleship/mentoring program to prepare them as Christian leaders. It is primarily for “training” - to develop Christian character and shape the values of those who go through the program.

Settings
STEMers can work in two different settings: (1)As a campus staff living in close proximity to the student to know their needs, assist and recommend suitable discipleship program. (2)As an office staff serving at GBUR office according to his/her area of interest and expertise.
