2019 Field Education Assignments

An important part of our curriculum is the practical component of contextual education that happens in the Field Education parish for the pre-vicarage years (and then a full year of contextual vicarage). The Field Education parish-pastor-student pairings were announced during the chapel service on September 10.  Seminarian Kyle Eddy was assigned to Concordia Lutheran, Edmonton (Mill Woods), working with Pastor Mark Hennig, and Seminarian Josh Timm, was assigned to Bethlehem Lutheran, Edmonton, working with Pastor Scott Lyons. We thank God for the pastors and congregations who partner with us on this labour of love.
