The purpose of Field Education (Field Ed.) at VTS is to offer seminarians the resources needed to develop skills and practices for contextual ministry, including:
  • Integrating the study of Christian tradition and the practice of Christian ministry
  • Enhancing liturgical, teaching and leadership abilities
  • Fostering personal and professional growth
  • Engaging in ongoing theological reflection on the practice of ministry
This integration of prayer, study, practice and theological reflection produces leaders who read, enter, and leave contexts well. Through practices learned in Field Ed., students are better equipped to think theologically about their ministry.

Before seminarians serve in any Field Ed. site, they must complete Sexual Misconduct/Abuse Prevention training for children, adults and elders. Other requirements and guidelines may be found on the Documents page or in the materials distributed at orientation.
