Reporting Continuing Education Units

The 191st General Assembly affirmed the need for Cumberland Presbyterian ministers to complete six (6) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two (2) years. CEUs can be earned in a variety of ways and does not require approval ahead of time – “the 191st General Assembly approve that Continuing Education Units (CEUs) can be earned by participating in any event/seminar related to ministry(including degree programs).” (2022 General Assembly Minutes, page 137).

In addition, CEUs are to be report annually to the presbytery’s Committee on the Ministry/Preparation. To assist in this effort, below is a form that can be downloaded and used to report to presbyteries. There is also a link to an online form that can be used for recording CEUs. Presbytery committees can contact the PDMT office for a report of their ministers.
