Ecumenical theological education (ETE)

Ecumenical theological education is vital for the future of the ecumenical movement. The WCC and its partners help create networks of ecumenical theological institutions. The ETE activities create opportunities for developing ecumenically-oriented leadership within churches. They are a step towards equal access to theological education for all who wish to serve the churches.
