Online registration is open for Union Presbyterian Seminary’s Pathways to Learning and Leadership online courses for the 2019-2020 academic year. The Pathways program was developed initially in consultation with presbytery leaders to provide an educational component for Commissioned Ruling Elder (CRE) training.
They offer nine (9) online courses led by faculty of Union Presbyterian Seminary or experienced practitioners. The courses are organized between Phase I and Phase II categories. Phase I consists of four foundational courses, to include Biblical Interpretation, Reformed Theology/Church History, The Christian Life, and Mission & Evangelism. Phase II consists of five practical ministry courses, to include Pastoral Care, Polity & Administration, Preaching the Bible, Teaching the Bible, and Worship & Sacraments. See the attached flyer for the full schedule for the 2019-2020 academic year, with course descriptions. Each course includes five (5) online class meetings.
Courses are open to all, including church and lay leaders seeking continuing education to deepen their own knowledge and application. Each certificate of completion grants 3.0 CEUs to include class meeting time, reading, assignments, and class preparation..
