EATFE Goes to Hollywood: Conversations on Theology and Culture

On behalf of Fuller Theological Seminary, we would like to warmly welcome you to the 2014 consultation of the Evangelical Association of Theological Field Education! We are so excited to have you here on our campus for such a formative event. It is our prayer that during your time here, you will find the space necessary to reflect upon issues of theology and culture, collaborate with your colleagues from around North America, and be empowered to continue forming faithful servants for God's kingdom--and, of course, have a lot of fun hanging out in Southern California. We are honored to partner with you, and we hope that you enjoy EATFE 2014!
