Partners in Ministry

As an integral part of the MDiv curriculum, students and faculty partner with robust ministries throughout the city of Chicago to provide challenging work, meaningful service, and thoughtful supervision.

The field education components of the ministry program offer students the opportunity to combine practice and reflection in their theological education. The aim of field education is not only to provide practical experience in the arts of ministry, but also to foster mutual enrichment between the academic study and the practice of ministry. Our students invite this practical to challenge and enrich the their academic study at the Divinity School, and likewise allow this study to challenge and enrich the student’s engagement in the practical tasks of ministry.
