The internship committee is a small group of five to eight people, meeting monthly (or every other month in the case of a concurrent internship) with the intern, who have agreed to develop a supportive relationship with the intern. You will learn, grow and struggle together as you help each other develop your unique ministry.
Internship Forms for Word and Sacrament
- Midpoint Evaluation – submitted by the committee
- Midpoint Student Response Review – review your intern’s response to your evaluation
- Final Evaluation – submitted by the committee
- Final Student Response Review – review your intern’s response to your evaluation
The mid-point and final evaluation forms ask the same questions at two different points during the internship. This allows interns, supervisors, and internship committees to mark the intern’s progress and growth.
Supervisors and committee chairs must complete the forms online and print copies for themselves.
Internship committees also participate in the evaluation process. The committee chair should submit the online evaluation form on behalf of the committee. However, the entire committee is expected to participate in the evaluation process by giving the chair their opinions on the evaluation questions. Review the evaluation questions.
Please note: It is the responsibility of the intern, and/or supervisor to assist the internship committee chairperson with basic technology support as needed.
The Contextual Learning office is available to assist as well as needed. If assistance is needed, having the supervisor or intern view your computer screen with you, is the best place to start. The Contextual learning Office is available, as a second option, to talk you through the steps, but we are unable to view your computer screen.
If you have any questions regarding the evaluations, please contact the Contextual Learning office.
We are here to help and support the intern, supervisor and committee!
Internships may start at different times of the year and have different cycles regarding the preparation of the internship details and submission of online forms (learning goals, project proposal, and evaluations). To assist in tracking details please use the appropriate timeline worksheet:

- Sermon Listener’s Feedback Guide – Students go on internship hoping to improve their preaching, and they look forward to suggestions from the members of their congregations. How can you help? Listen carefully to their sermons, with the following questions in mind: What insights did I gain from the biblical text? How did the message from the Bible relate to my life? Are there ways the intern could improve his or her speaking style?
