The Continuing Education Office at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is designed to meet the needs of both clergy and laity. For men and women engaged in professional ministry, updating skills and knowledge under the leadership of Seminary faculty members and visiting professors can provide extremely important lessons. For an increasing number of laity, theological education consists of short-term seminars and conferences.
Each year the Continuing Education program offers a basic core of events, with contemporary topics added in consultation with a dedicated committee of faculty, area clergy, and laity. These events include five annual lectureships, commissioned lay pastor training, travel study trips, interim ministry training, continuing education for psychologists and social workers, and certification courses for Christian educators.
The Certificate in Spiritual Formation program offers an exploration of community grounded spirituality that is rooted in Scripture, theology, a history of the tradition, readings in spiritual classics, prayer and meditation, and skills for assisting others on a spiritual journey.
