United-in-Learning offers a variety of distance education opportunities for church leaders. Whether you're clergy or lay, whether you have years of experience under your belt, or you've just joined your first committee, we have ways to connect you with like-minded people across the country to help make your church more vibrant, exciting, and alive.
Most of our programs use computer and telephone to connect people across the miles. It's a way to break down isolation in ministry, and share best practices from one end of the country to another. For most programs, all you'll need is a computer with Internet access, and a telephone.
Many programs use a telephone conference call system which allows us to move participants in and out of small group discussion, which means you can be in a workshop with 50 other participants, and do a case study with just a handful -- and then report back to the whole group. This kind of interactive learning means you'll never be tempted to check your email during a workshop!
