Rueben Job Institute Online Courses

Job Institute Online Courses

The Rueben P. Job Institute for Spiritual Formation partners with Garrett-Evangelical's Connectional Learning to offer a number of online courses for continuing education credit each year. These online courses provide an opportunity for both clergy and lay to explore meaningful facts of their own spiritual formation and their leadership with others in spiritual formation/direction ministries. These instructors interact with students each week over a six-week period and while there are weekly deadlines, participants are able engage the class on their own schedules within each week. For most courses, participants spend 3-4 hours per week to complete all aspects of the course and receive 2 CEUs.

For more information about any of the Rueben P. Job Institute for Spiritual Formation online courses, please contact us at connectional.learning@garrett.edu or call 847.866.4547.
