Institute for Ministry Enrichment

Nazarene Bible College, in an effort to provide ministerial continuing education through an online delivery system, has created the Institute for Ministry Enrichment. This service to the church is designed as a high quality, low cost program that can benefit the clergy in every church.

Please Note: These continuing education classes are not for college credit and will not appear on an official college transcript. However, the registrar's office will keep records of each IME/Lifelong Learning class completed.

Ministerial Continuing Education (Lifelong Learning Hours)

Continuing education is a significant part of every modern day profession. Doctors, nurses, accountants, lawyers, law enforcement, teachers, etc. are all required to complete a certain amount of continuing education on a regular basis. This is also true of clergy within the Church of the Nazarene. The difficulty is finding good programs, for a reasonable cost, that are conveniently accessible.

What is a Lifelong Learning Credit? It is hourly learning experiences that enhance your ministry effectiveness and performance. This would include meetings, seminars, symposia, and/or online courses that meet the specific objectives of the organization. The Church of the Nazarene requires its ministers to earn twenty (20) lifelong learning hours per year.
