HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK:
Textbook Summary submissions should be 10-20 pages in length. The majority of the paper should be a summary of the content of the text written in the Student's own words. Plagiarism in any form will not be tolerated. In addition, a statement or paragraph concerning what was learned and how it is applicable to the Student’s life and/or ministry should be included. Newburgh suggests that the Student briefly summarize each chapter of the text as it is reviewed. Once the paper is completed, the Student should then review and make any revisions necessary to present a good summary for submission. Once the first summary paper receives a passing grade, additional summary papers may be submitted.
Always email your paper to email@example.com
Never mail anything that requires a signature as it will not be picked up.
Seminar Summary submissions should be between 4-6 pages in length. The majority of the paper should be a summary of the content of the seminar written in the Student's own words. Plagiarism in any form will not be tolerated. In addition, a statement or paragraph concerning what was learned and how it is applicable to the Student’s life and/or ministry should be included. Once the first summary paper receives a passing grade, additional summary papers may be submitted.
Christian Counseling (CC) Verbatim reports should be between 1-3 pages in length. CC verbatims are approximate word-for-word reports of actual counseling or ministry care dialogue sessions. The CC verbatim reports may cover formal counseling sessions as well as time spent with someone in a helpful situation such as a hospital visit, nursing home visit or a conversation with someone at church. Each CC verbatim report should begin with a paragraph describing the setting in which the counseling or dialogue session took place. Each CC verbatim report should conclude with a paragraph summarizing the Student’s perception of the result of the counseling or ministry care dialogue sessions. Once the first verbatim receives a passing grade, additional verbatims may be submitted.
Missions, Evangelism and Church Growth (MECG) Verbatim reports should be between 1-3 pages in length. MECG verbatims are approximate word-for-word reports or summaries of actual missions, evangelism or church growth experiences. MECG verbatim reports may cover experiences that include, but are not limited to, the following: personal witnessing/evangelism encounters (these are encounters where you have in some way shared the gospel with a person who is not a Christian); any effort to build up your church, small group, Sunday school class; or any mission effort such as Bible school or handing out gospel tracts. Each MECG verbatim report should begin with a paragraph describing the setting in which the mission, evangelism or church growth experience took place. Each MECG verbatim report should conclude with a paragraph summarizing the Student’s perception of the result of the mission, evangelism or church growth experience. Once the first verbatim receives a passing grade, additional verbatims may be submitted.
Dissertations should be between 60-150 pages in length and must include a bibliography with at least 20 references. It must be double spaced and in a 12 point font in Microsoft Word or something "very" similar that we can easily download and read. PDF files are not accepted.
The dissertation should introduce the theme and then in detail research the theme and provide in lay language the exposition or details of the theme. Footnotes and research notes should be noted numerically after each quote with the source listed at the end of the section, end of the chapter, or end of the paper. Footnotes and research notes may also be listed immediately after the quote or the material cited. The Bibliography is placed at the end of the paper. You may have a concluding page or two after the bibliography if you think it is necessary. Please do not make this complicated. There should be a title page, introduction page or pages, the body of the dissertation or exposition of your theme, your concluding page or pages, the footnote pages if you choose to put them at the end, and your bibliography. The total of all this should be 60 to 150 pages. All coursework including verbatims must be submitted prior to submitting your dissertation. Your theme idea may be submitted for approval as soon as you have signed your student agreement. Thus, you may begin working on your dissertation very early. This will give you ample time to enjoy your study and research.
The following are resources for dissertations: However, please don't confuse yourself by trying to read these books. The above statement is adequate for your research paper. You may want to refer to one of these books or do an online google search for how to do a standard Bibliography and footnotes for research papers.
A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Seventh Edition: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers (Chicago Guides to Writing, Editing, and Publishing) by Kate L. Turabian, Wayne C. Booth, Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams (Apr 15, 2007). The dissertation may only be submitted after all coursework and verbatims (if required) have received passing grades.
Ministry Projects should be between 30-50 pages in length. First submit your theme or ministry project idea. When you have the approval of your theme or idea then you may immediately begin. Most ideas are approved but we simply want to know what you are going to do before you start. A Ministry Project is more practical than research oriented. The concept behind the ministry project paper is that you do a ministry project and then tell us about your project in your paper. The paper may include research references. These should be noted in footnotes and a Bibliography. In the DMIN project you tell us about your theme. You describe to us your reason for the theme. You explain what you hoped to accomplish by pursuing this idea or theme. You then tell us how you plan to carry out your project or theme. Then you do the project. After you complete the project you tell us how your ministry project went. You tell us what was accomplished or what was not accomplished. You tell us about the results of the project that you carried out. Tell us about what you learned. Provide any numbers or statistics if applicable to your project. For example a DMIN project might be about starting a small group program in your church. Other ideas include starting a counseling ministry. Beginning a daycare center. Starting a senior adult program. Beginning an outreach program. It may be revamping a ministry in the church. Your project might be about doing a series of sermons about a certain Biblical theme, a book in the Bible, a series of sermons pertaining to Christ's birth, resurrection, etc. There is almost an unlimited list of ministry ideas you might consider for a ministry project. All this information should be in a 30 to 50 page paper. Use reading and references as is necessary to strengthen your paper and your studies. You will submit one completed project paper 30 to 50 pages in length to firstname.lastname@example.org. The project may only be submitted after all coursework have received passing grades.
