The Teaching Ministry Program is a field education program designed for students who plan to teach either in higher education or in an adult teaching ministry in the church. Done part time during the academic year, the placements are designed to help students bridge the gap between the academy and the parish. The teaching ministry program focuses on the Christian education of adults within the context of a congregation. We select churches with thriving adult education programs and a pastor or Christian education director willing to supervise a student devoted only to adult education.

Interested students must submit an application to the Field Education Office. Selection for the placements is based on academic excellence, a vocational focus on teaching, availability of a faculty mentor, and availability of an appropriate church site.
