Modular Course of Study

Educational Preparation for Ordination: THE MODULAR EDUCATION PROGRAM

Program Description

In cooperation with Global Clergy Development, the USA/Canada Region offers the Modular Education Program (formerly, "Modular Course of Study"), one of several non-degree programs designed to meet the Course of Study requirements for ordination in the Church of the Nazarene. This curriculum has been validated by the General Board and Board of General Superintendents. Those preparing for ministry in the Church of the Nazarene should contact their respective district offices for further information about the MEP and other paths (degree and non-degree) of preparation for ministry in the Church of the Nazarene.

The curriculum plan is embodied in faculty and student guides available for download. The 24 modules of the elder track are complete. Additional modules in deacon tracks are being developed. Guides are being translated into Spanish and will be added to the menu as they become available.

Faculty guides contain complete lesson plans for each teaching-learning session, including lectures, discussion guides, small-group activities, and homework assignments. Student guides contain a complete syllabus with extensive bibliography, lesson assignments, public domain resources, classroom handouts, and learning resources.

Some modules include supplemental teaching resources like downloadable reading materials and audio sermons.
