This Educator Certification Course in Reformed Theology is designed to provide Presbyterian Christian Educators with a clear understanding of the Reformed tradition as it is expressed within the PC(USA) and in other local, national, and global communities of faith. It also invites students to identify distinctive theological convictions within the Reformed tradition and make powerful connections between these convictions and their educational ministries in the church and the world today. The course examines several significant movements, confessions, individuals, and works and it sharpens comprehension of how to effectively educate others in ways that resonate within their specific cultural and theological communities.

Registration ends Friday, December 9 so that participants may be present for the Zoom class on Monday, December 12.
