New York School of Ministry Courses

button click here to register5 

 The New York School of Ministry offers a variety of webconferenced courses, where participants interact with their instructors in real time and are in conversation with peers “face to face” from their home computers. We offer our 12 core courses (the ones required for the Christian Leadership Program) on a three year rotation.


Cost per 20-hour course: NY Conference Participants: $250;  Audit: $175; Repeat Course Audit: $100
Non-New York Conference Participants: $275; Audit: $200 (plus the Distance Learning Support fee). Distance Learning Support fee for Fall 2017:  $70 per 20-hour course.
Distance Learning requires technological support. For webconferenced courses, participants who are not part of the New York Conference are more than welcome. The NY Conference provides that support for its participants; we ask other UCC Conferences and participating denominations to provide that support for their participants (if such church support is unavailable, the distance learning support fee is the responsibility of the participant).  No face to face meetings required. Participants can participate in our webconferenced courses from their home computers.
