The Leadership Institute at Union Presbyterian Seminary is offering a 30-hour non-credit hybrid course in Presbyterian Polity, Program, and Mission, beginning AT HOME on January 4, 2016, and ending with three days ON-CAMPUS in Richmond, February 1-3. There will be approximately 18 hours of work at home and 12 hours on campus.
The course meets the requirements of Christian Educator Certification, but is also a great opportunity for elders and deacons, DCEs who are not seeking certification, Christian education committee members, CRE trainees, pastors, and interested church members. It will be taught by the Rev. H. Carson Rhyne, Jr., General Presbyter and Stated Clerk of the Presbytery of the James.
