Each course is five weeks long.

  • Dates: September 2017 to June 2018
  • Leaders: Union Presbyterian Seminary faculty and experienced practitioners
  • Event location: Wherever your computer is!
  • Registration: $100 per five-week course
  • CEUs: 3.0 per course
  • For: Those desiring to become Commissioned Ruling Elders and church members who want to further their education and discipleship

To assist presbyteries in training women and men to be Commissioned Ruling Elders, AND to offer quality educational opportunities for church members in an affordable and accessible way, the Leadership Institute is offering a program with two tracks:

Commissioned Ruling Elders (CREs) take four Foundational Courses in the first year and five Practical Courses in the second year, which will help to fulfill the educational requirements of CREs for participating presbyteries. Please check with your presbytery or denomination.

Church members take the same four Foundational Courses in the first year as CREs and two other courses (electives or Practical Ministries courses) in the second year. Completion of these six courses results in a Certificate of Completion from the Leadership Institute.
