Continuing Education (CE)


In April 2016 the Metropolitan Association Board of Directors accepted a proposal from the Ordination and Ministerial Standing committee to require clergy to certify annually that they have completed 25 hours of continuing education.

This requirement is effective January 1, 2017 and reporting is required by December 31, 2017.

This CE requirement is self-reported and can include reporting of spiritual or theological books read, conferences attended, classes taken or any other activity. Some of the CE activities will be listed here and in the web calendar.

Attention All Association Churches and Members

We are living at a time of escalating fear that is leading to hate.  The most important thing we can do to stop this trend is to not be part of it.  We must do as we are called to do as Christians. It is important to show this video and have discussions at your churches. Please refer to the information in the poster that is also displayed.
