In this project I planned and implement an internship model for pastors in African American churches at Forest Baptist Church. Chapter 1 provides the foundation of the project, which includes the purpose, goals, context, rationale, and research methodology. Chapter 2 presents the biblical and theological basis for pastoral internships based on how Jesus and Paul mentored men. Chapter 3 summarizes theoretical and practical issues to pastoral leadership in the African American context by giving an historical sketch of the black church. Chapter 4 traces the planning and implementation of the project, along with an evaluation and conclusion. Chapter 5 analyzes and assesses the project, with personal reflections.
