Your PMM Application Process
Are you an M.Div. seminarian who plans to graduate in 2022? Will you have completed the basic 24 credit hours of your program (including courses MM101 and MM102) by the beginning of the summer term 2021 or fall term 2021? Are you an M.A. or M.T.S. seminarian who wants to do elective PMM? If you answered “yes” to any one of these questions, then please begin the PMM process by completing a PMM Interest Form and attending a PMM Information Meeting (click on the first tab below).
If you are interested in starting PMM in Summer or Fall 2021, please indicate that interest and sign up to attend one of the two PMM information meetings via the form below. For more information, please contact the PMM office by email at PMMAssistant@WesleySeminary.edu.
Your PMM Seminarian Placement Application is due by Feb. 1 regardless of whether you are seeking a summer or fall placement. Applications can be submitted via email or by bringing a copy to the office (PMMAssistant@WesleySeminary.edu; suite K-107). Note: If you are requesting to do your PMM where employed, then you will need to submit your Petition to do PMM in site where employed with your application.
*Seminarians will not be placed at their home church unless already employed there.*
The PMM Interview Day will be held in future.
If you are seeking fall/spring internship placement, please contact and interview with approved PMM sites of interest directly. Once you identify a site that is able to provide your educational needs and is willing to partner with you, then solidify your paperwork. More information on paperwork solidification may be found through the accordion section on this page titled: "Solidify your PMM placement by the appropriate deadline".
Starting in January, site profiles may be accessed on Blackboard using course MM-001 PMM Ministry Setting Profiles.
For access to approved PMM site profiles or for consultation, please contact the PM&M Office on PMMAssistant@WesleySeminary.edu.
Solidification includes having brought the PMM office the following by the appropriate deadline:
1) an approved Site Application (with the information for both a clergy partner and a lay learning partner completely filled out and signed);
2) written confirmation of interest from the seminarian that names the site and the term (i.e. Summer 2021 or Fall/Spring 2021-2022); AND
3) written confirmation of interest from the site that gives the potential intern's full name and the term (i.e. Summer 2021 or Fall/Spring 2021-2022).
⇒Tip: It is best to submit paperwork two weeks prior to deadlines.
Please note: Site/Profile Applications are reviewed after receipt; site approval is not guaranteed.
For Summer PMM, the placement solidification deadline is March 1.
Please Note: There are typically no extensions granted for summer PMM deadlines.
For Fall/Spring PMM, the placement solidification deadline is May 1.
Please Note: Seminarians requesting a fall/spring deadline extension MUST be in conversation with the PMM Office prior to May 1. The extended deadline, by prior approval, for solidifying a Fall/Spring placement is June 1. Seminarians will not be able to participate in the fall/spring colloquy groups if PMM Placements are not finalized by June 1.
*Seminarians will not be placed at their home church unless employed there.*
Interns are required to attend both the spring and fall colloquy meetings in order to participate in their summer PMM internship:
- The spring meeting will be 4 pm - 7:15 pm on Friday, April 2, 2021.

PMM Orientation is required for all learning partnership members at the same session. The learning partnership should plan to attend ONLY ONE ORIENTATION TOGETHER (June 12th OR July 17th OR August 28th). If orientation of all members - intern, clergy partner, and lay partner - are not completed by August 28, 2021, the course will remain in wait-list status and the PMM placement cannot go forth.
