Evangelical Association of Theological Field Educators (EATFE)

The Evangelical Association of Theological Field Educators (EATFE) is the evangelical caucus of the Association of Theological Field Education (ATFE). EATFE meets biannually (on the off years of ATFE’s Biennium) for the purpose of professional development and collegial support.

Professional papers are presented by members at the biannual conferences on topics relevant to theological field education. Facilitated discussions explore various issues related to the formation, development, and placement of students preparing for Christian vocational ministry.

The meetings are designed for both those new to theological field education and those serving as a life career. Members often remain in contact with each other for mutual encouragement, resourcing, and accountability.

The Evangelical Association of Theological Field Educators invites and encourages you to share the joy of partnership and friendship with faithful and gifted colleagues.
