Postgraduate Programs

CLL Thompson Scolars 1 hero

The Center for Lifelong Learning offers postgraduate programs to help Christian leaders hone the knowledge, skills and insights they need to navigate the often complex, rapidly changing cultural contexts of ministry.

Our application-based postgraduate programs are designed to address specific topics. These are often opportunities to broaden or deepen working knowledge in a particular area. A hallmark of these programs is engagement within learning communities, with ample time for discussion and reflection.

Pastoral Excellence Programs

The Pastoral Excellence Program of the Center for Lifelong Learning includes three professional development opportunities for clergy: the Leadership in Ministry Workshops, the Colloquy for Clergy series, and the Healthy Transitions Wellness Retreats. Each addresses particular needs of clergy during their vocational ministry trajectory and builds on the best practices of clergy professional and personal development. All programs incorporate peer learning and reflection on practice. See the links below for more details about each program.
