This unit gives students the opportunity to spend a full-year engaging with a chosen ministry at a deep level.
Much more than placement, field education aims to develop reflective learning, self-awareness and a critical approach to ministry. Students not only learn from doing but learn how to be a life-long learner.
After setting their own goals through conversation with trusted mentors, students meet weekly with a supervisor and monthly with a field committee who are part of the ministry they’re undertaking.
It’s a rich time of self-reflection as students gain confidence through practice and learn how different ministries operate, take lessons from experienced practitioners and discover what it’s like being in a public position of responsibility.
