This conference is a gathering for those who primarily work with pastoral education and the training of other ecclesial professionals in the Nordic countries (Profesjonsprogrammene og relevante masterprogram in Norway, Pastoralseminaret/FUV in Denmark, Utbildningsinstitutet in Sweden, and The Institute for Advanced Training, Finland).

The training of ecclesial professionals varies in the Nordic countries, and it is beneficial to know more about how colleagues in other context go about this task as well as how the structural frames differ from country to country. The aim of the gathering, therefore, is to create a space for colleagues in the Nordic context who work with the training of ecclesial professionals to connect, network, and share experiences. There will be some shorter introductions to topics related to the training of ecclesial professionals followed by conversation and discussion in various forms. 

We hope that the conference can continue the valuable contributions from the former “Nätverket för teologisk utbildning i Norden”, and at the same time constitute a meeting point that fits today’s challenges.

In the days before this conference, MF is also hosting a conference on practice and theology organized by the Nordic Network for Practice and Theology, called Exploring Practices in Theological Research. For more information see
