The Rev. Dr. Nancy Fields is Assistant Professor of Supervised Ministry at New York Theological Seminary.  A graduate of Herbert H. Lehman College (BA), Manhattanville Colleage (MS) and New York Theological Seminary (MDiv and DMin), she has served at NYTS as Adjunct Faculty since 2003, and as Director of Supervised Ministry since 2010.  She also serves as co-Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) Supervisor for the newly approved CPE program at NYTS, and teaches in the DMin program.  A member of the Association for Theological Field Education (ATFE), she is active nationally in activities concerned with training and directing field-based learning in theological education.

Complimenting these achievements in theological education is Dr. Fields’ work in the church.  As a preacher and teacher, she seeks especially to embody the commitments of Black and Womanist theologies, bringing them more fully to bear on the life of local congregations.  She has served as the pastor of Bethany Presbyterian Church in Washingtonville, NY and currently is the pastor of Brook Presbyterian Church in Hillburn, New York.  Dr. Fields served as Co-Chair of the United Black Clergy of Westchester’s Dr. Richard H. Scholarship Committee; a member of the Holmes Presbyterian Camp and Conference Center’s Program Planning Committee; as Board Secretary for the Congregations Concerned with the City of Mount Vernon, New York; and as First Vice President of the John L. Scott Associate Ministers Auxiliary of the United Missionary Baptist Association.  In 2005, she received the “Standing on Their Shoulders: A Celebration of the Wisdom of Women” Award from Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Bronx Alumnae Chapter, and in 2010 the Lutheran Social Services of New York Alliance honored her work as Resident Chaplain with its Kujenga Jamii Rising Star Award.
