Clergy Continuing Formation

As clergy persons, our call to learning and growth that is life-long. The Board of Ordained Ministry seeks to support pastors in continuing education and spiritual formation throughout their careers.

All clergy under appointment are required to complete 10 CEU’s (continuing education units) per four-year quadrennium. CEU’s are granted at the rate of 1 unit per 10 contact hours.

Resources that will help you on the journey include:

  • Continuing Formation Manual – Updated in 2022, the Continuing Formation Manual outlines the requirements, opportunities and funding sources for continuing formation of pastors serving in the Susquehanna Conference.
  • CEU Application – When applying for continuing education units for an event not hosted by the Susquehanna Conference, this link takes you to an online form through which you request that credit.
  • Continuing Formation Funding Application – In addition to local church continuing education funds, the Board of Ordained Ministry administers Ministerial Education Funds for clergy, using the attached application.
