Southwest appreciates the importance to clergy and lay leaders of continuing their education and offers several opportunities to earn CEUs.
- Each summer, Seminary of the Southwest presents a week-long continuing education session on the seminary’s campus for clergy and lay leaders. Meant to give you “food for the journey” the content will have practical application back home, and the learning shared with faculty and friends will renew and refresh you. See upcoming session below.
- Lecture series in September (Blandy Lectures), February (Payne Lecture), and March (Harvey Lectures) presented by distinguished scholars and leaders in the Church offer additional learning and renewal opportunities.
- Seminary of the Southwest will often host or present in partnership continuing education opportunities throughout the year.

Campus of Seminary of the Southwest
In these challenging times of political, social, religious, and interpersonal conflict, practicing forgiveness helps individuals, families, and communities restore broken relationships. This unique five-day, multi-disciplinary study will explore the practice of forgiveness from a variety of Christian theological and psychological perspectives. Our instructors include members of Southwest’s talented academic faculty, as well as highly qualified, experienced educators from outside the Southwest community, including Dr. Douglas Snyder, Professor of Psychology at Texas A&M University. The unique modular construction of the program, with special pricing for particular sessions, encourages participation from those who cannot devote the entire week to a continuing education course. At the conclusion of the week, all registrants will receive a certificate from Seminary of the Southwest confirming the extent of their participation in the course for purposes of seeking credit for continuing education from their respective governing bodies.
