Peter Tyrrell - Field Education Supervisor
This is an internship opportunity designed to enable the student to begin to develop a theology of ministry and to reflect on theological and biblical issues in ministry, integrating subject work studies with actual ministry in different situations.
It exposes the student to the ways ministry is conducted and modelled and gives students the opportunity to experience various ministerial tasks under supervision.
Field Education can be done in various specialty areas such as:
• Congregational ministry
• Pastoral care
• Practical ministry
• Lay ministry
• Youth ministry or
• Cross-cultural Field Education
The time you will need to allow for Field Education will be determined by your supervisor and Field Partner.
Generally, it can be taken over one semester or spread over four.
Assessments will be determined by your supervisor and Field Partner.
