This unit will introduce students to the process of field education and theological reflection. Students will be placed in a field placement with an accredited placement supervisor. They will engage in contextual ministry practice and through theological reflection, further reading, self- reflection, and supervision develop skills and competencies in the practice of ministry. Placements available are wide ranging within both metropolitan and rural contexts. Attention will be given to the development of foundational skills in ministry and leadership within the 21st century church.
