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 formation of adults within the context of a congregation, but there are some placements in school and campus ministry settings. We select churches and some specialized ministry sites with healthy college/adult ed. programs and a supervisor (pastor, C.E. director, program director) appropriately trained and willing to supervise a student devoted only to adult education.

While participating in the general life of a selected site, students will design, implement, teach and evaluate activities within the context of an effective adult education program. Working both independently (under the guidance of the supervisor and faculty mentor) and with others in the congregation/organization, the student connects curriculum, methodology and resources to the faith development of adult learners.

The student, in consultation with the congregation/organization’s Christian Formation Committee (or other appropriate oversight committee) and supervisor, may design work-shops, retreats, or series of classes. As an experienced teacher and expert in a given area, the faculty mentor serves as an academic resource and support person for the teaching ministry student. The student usually teaches a series during the fall/Advent and a series during the spring/Lent but may also do retreats or other projects with adults.
