2018 Evangelical Association of Theological Field Educators (EATFE) Biennial Consultation

Theological Reflection: The Role of Field Education in Preparing Ministers To Think Theologically

Training students to think and to act theologically is a key objective for most schools engaged in preparing ministry leaders. Students typically receive substantial instruction in the biblical, theological, historical, and ethical disciplines via their coursework, including matters of theological methodology. However, developing the capacity and skill for theological reflection as an essential discipline of faithful Christian leadership is a task that largely falls to theological field educators. How can we fulfill that responsibility most effectively? What are some best practices for this dimension of our work? In what ways should our convictions and commitments as evangelicals inform and uniquely shape our approach to theological reflection? How can we work more collaboratively with our faculty colleagues, ministry mentors, and others to achieve this objective? These and other questions will be the subject of our upcoming biennial consultation. Join us in Birmingham on January 16-18, 2018.
