2017-2018 Christian Educator Certification Classes Begin Soon!

Debbie Gline Allen


Three of the six classes offered in the Massachusetts Conference Christian Educator Certification Program are being taught this program year:
United Church of Christ History, Polity, & Identity with Rev. Jonathan New
Old & New Testament with Rev. Don Remick
Basics in Christian Education & Administration with Corey Lincoln
Visit http://www.macucc.org/certification for details.
We offer two onsite locations, one in eastern and one in western Massachusetts for your convenience. New this year is the option to take the classes via web conferencing! Just select that option when you register. However, we strongly recommend that you attend the classes in person, if you are able, to gain the most from face to face contact with the instructors and fellow educators.
Why should church education leaders become certified through the Massachusetts Conference?

  • Certification serves as a validation of your knowledge and experience as an educator.
  • You acquire access to a support system of peers and colleagues in ministry.
  • You gain access to best practices and resources for educational ministries.
  • You join other lay persons and church educators from southern New England in a spirit of learning, faith-building, and friendship.
  • The Certification Certificate will indicate that the educator has achieved a level of proficiency through knowledge, experience, and training.
