Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Contextual Education at Eden Theological Seminary.
Contextual Education is an integral part of our curriculum where theory and practice meet in “real life” ministry settings. We are proud to partner with local congregations, non-profit agencies, after-school programs, and health-care settings to provide our students with hands-on ministry experience as a vital part of their formation. It is our goal for students to experience doing ministry - in context - while using their classroom learnings as a basis for reflection of their ministry work. As a result, our students graduate with a strong sense of what it means to join God’s work for justice and reconciliation in the world.
