Course Memo

Fieldwork is an opportunity to put into action the theory learned in the classroom. Working in a congregation gives the student a chance to develop their unique pastoral voice while navigating complexities of a congregation’s history, culture, systems and ethos. Fieldwork placements may include: teaching a religious education class for children or adults, working with a youth group, serving on a pastoral care team, participating in a stewardship campaign and more. Evaluation is based on Zoom conversations with professor, mid-term and final evaluations. This course is for M.Div. students. Depending on the focus of the Field Work, your project may relate to Starr King thresholds 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8 and MFC requirements 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. This course is available for 1-5 units.
