"Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent." - Parker J. Palmer
 
   The Forum For Theological Exploration (FTE) Guide to Theological Education  The Forum For Theological Exploration's (FTE) mission is to culticate diverse young adults to be faithful, wise, and courageous leaders for the church and academy. “Theological education is a journey of the heart, soul, mind and strength into the life of God and the healing of the world.”As you read The FTE Guide to Theological Education, our hope is that you will find the information in the following pages helpful as you discern your next steps in pursuing a graduate theological degree toward preparing for ministry. 
 
   7 Insights on Leadership the World Needs Now  We know that communities everywhere need inspired leaders to shape a hopeful future. But can we actually create the conditions in which faithful, wise and courageous leaders will thrive? We believe the answer is “yes.” And doing God’s work in the world depends on it. Over 18 months in seven cities with 200 conversation partners, FTE explored three questions: What are the leadership questions you wrestle with in your context? What kinds of leaders does the world need from the church today? What attributes must these leaders have to make a difference in the world? The conversation continues. So does action. What do these seven insights inspire you to do? We invite you to share your ideas in the comment box. Together, let’s name seven steps to foster faithful leadership that the world needs now.
 
   Equipping Vocational Discovery FTE strives to equip the next generation of leaders who are inspired to do God’s work in the world through his or her own church or academic community. With support, diverse young people can enliven their vocational pursuit, becoming intellectually and spiritually whole leaders. We provide resources created to meet the unique needs of those who are seeking their purpose, passion and call, and the partners who nurture them on their journey.
