Home - The Association for Theological Field Education | ATFE

The Association for Theological Field Education is an international, ecumenical community formed in 1946 whose purposes include maximizing the quality of service to theological field education and providing for optimal growth and development of field education personnel.

Field educators are the people in theological schools who curate experiences of field learning for students.  As bridge builders, we cultivate partnerships between our institutions and contexts for ministry education and formation.  As educators, we form students in practices of theological reflection, vocational discernment, and becoming leaders.
