New York School of Ministry

Registration is now open for the Spring Learning Event

Click here for more information and to register



The New York School of Ministry (NYSOM) is designed to deepen the knowledge, skills, and spiritual life of all who participate. We offer two 20-hour courses every spring and fall, occasional shorter courses for continuing education, and we sponsor two 24-hour learning events (in the fall and spring) each year. These learning opportunities are open to everyone who is interested. Everyone is welcome – you might be active in your congregation or not; you might be UCC or not; you might be seeking continuing education or just looking to grow in a new direction.

In addition to courses and 24-hour events, we offer certificate programs, which combine classroom learning with supervised ministry experiences and a relationship with a mentor, to prepare individuals for licensed, commissioned, and ordained ministry.

We send out quarterly program updates.  To read the most recent editions, please click below:
