Unity ministers are required to obtain seven (7) hours of continuous education each year. At least one hour must be in the area of inclusivity/diversity, and at least one hour must be in the area of ethics/boundaries.
LUTs are required to obtain five (5) hours of continuous education each year. At least one hour must be in the area of inclusivity/diversity, and at least one hour must be in the area of ethics/boundaries.
Effective January 1, 2021, ministers and LUTs will be expected to track CEUs themselves and to report these to UWM on their annual report at the end of the year. Please keep accurate records, including receipts/certificates/objectives from your courses. Should a question arise, UWM may ask you to provide us with copies of these documents. It is no longer necessary to obtain approval for courses you are using for CEUs. We are trusting our leaders to make choices that best support them in serving with excellence.
The intention of CEUs is to enhance our skills in ministry. We all learn and grow through reading, studying, and watching videos. However, ministry is relationship based, and our learning is augmented through interactions with others. Consequently, leaders are strongly encouraged to select trainings and courses for obtaining CEUs.
