The Future of Theological Education – Philip Forbes

In this essay I hope to reflect on and critically evaluate my experience of Theological Education and by drawing on this experience make suggestions about the future of theological education. I will begin by briefly talking about my own initial expectations concerning college and how I found that they developed as I learnt more about why I had come to study theological education. I will then look at how my experiences of Ikon outside of college influenced my own view of the Church and how I feel that the concerns raised by those experiences should be engaged by Theological institutions. Finally I will posit three challenges facing the future of Theological education and from these draw out goals that could be integrated into graduate profiles to help Theological Institutions with preparing their students for ministry.
