The Practical Ministry Course (PMC) is a six week course with an emphasis on m and evang in India. Lecture and practical outreach will be combined together during the six week course so that school participants can experience learning by doing.
Lectures will be bilingual, Spanish and English. The lecture and outreach phases will be intertwined That is, one or two days of lecture and then one or two days of outreach and so on.
A primary strategy through which the school will be doing outreach will be conducting medical camps with a mobile medical clinic. This clinic will often be combined when possible with evangelism strategies such as childrens ministry, the Jesus film, music, personal prayer, speaking and literature. The outreaches will be partnered with rural church plants in order to assist them in their outreach and growth.
The purpose of the school is to give training and vision for miss in India, and to combine practical helps and other strategies with village churches to further the gospel in Karnataka and beyond.

Students will not only have chances to participate but also to lead in different areas. The school will be based in Bangalore, run by Mobile Evang Ministry (MEM). Much of the outreach will be in more unreached rural areas in Karnataka.
A portion for outreach will be held elsewhere in India (possibly Varanasi or Kolkata) following the PMC, interested graduates will be given opportunities for further volunteer work with MEM or other ministries in India.
