Classes For Clergy

The Calvin Institute of Christian Worship is an interdisciplinary study and ministry center that partners with congregations, organizations and publishers to promote the study of Christian worship and the renewal of worship in Christian faith communities. The institute hosts training events and an annual worship symposium; publishes scholarly books, papers and articles; and offers a Worship Renewal Grant to assist congregations and their leaders in undertaking worship renewal. The institute works in close partnership with Calvin Theological Seminary (in Grand Rapids, Mich.) to provide continuing education programs for clergy.

Faith & Leadership is the online magazine of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School (Durham, N.C.). Its purpose is to strengthen the practice of Christian leadership by providing access to transformative leaders, theological reflections, in-depth articles and stories, and reading lists. The Leadership Education initiative delivers educational services that enhance the leadership ability of clergy and laity and promote vibrant congregations.

For information on Faith & Leadership’s educational programs, explore clergy training programs, and the Study Leave for Ministry Professionals program, designed to help clergy and others pursue a self-defined course of study at Duke.

The Association of Theological Schools is a membership organization of more than 250 Jewish and Christian theology schools in North America that offer advanced ministry degrees and programs. Clergy and others looking to pursue programs in religion and theological study – including for continuing education credit – may use the site’s archived data to identify suitable institutions.
