Many of our seminaries and denominational organizations continue to make webinars and online courses available and open during these pandemic days. Some are one-time events and some are longer, multi-session courses. Watch this space in the newsletter for information about upcoming events and registration information.

Pathways to Learning and Leadership Online Courses Offered by Union Presbyterian Seminary
Pathways to Learning and Leadership is an online program of nine courses offered over a two-year period to provide educational leadership development. Courses are open to all, one does not need to be pursuing to become a CRE in order to participate. Courses aim to enhance knowledge and discipleship, and each course is five weeks long. Why Pathways? 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 cost for the courses is $125. The Adult Education Ministry is offering scholarship assistance for members who may want to participate in any of these courses. Visit the seminary website for more information about the classes and registration. You do not need to sign up for a comprehensive program to participate in any of these individual courses.
