Having a field school in the local conference is both a privilege and an outstanding experience. Such a well-organized force makes not only a lasting impact on the city and on the church but brings courage throughout the conference as members see what can be done by united effort.
We have just concluded such a field school in the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The immediate result is a fine set of meetings, and many baptisms in a short time, but the long-range result is even greater, for the training of thirty young ministers to be soul winners will mean much in the future program of the work of God. The practical daily program helps the student ministers to have the courage to launch out on their own. For example: two theology students from Canadian Union College enrolled in the field school. Later they requested the privilege of holding a student effort about thirty miles from the college. During the meetings they had twenty-two decisions for the Master.
The field school is the diadem of theological education.
