Theological Field Education

Theological Field Evangelism (TFE) is built around the mentoring relationship between a ministry context mentor and an individual seminarian in area churches or community ministry settings. It fosters the formation of ministry practitioners who are intentional about theological reflection to create insightful religious practice. Two credits required for the MDiv program.

All MDiv students must register during their second Fall semester for CHMN560 Theological Field Education and grades are assess by the start of Summer semester.

TFE provides MDiv students with opportunities to:

  • Clarify the nature of their calling.
  • Develop ministry competencies with the guidance of a field mentor.
  • Engage their spouse and children in the realities of ministry in order to gauge the couple/family fit for ministry
