Synodically Authorized Ministry

Synodically Authorized or Licensed Ministries
Guidelines related to Synodically Authorized or Licensed Ministries designate Select Learning as a source of appropriate courses.  These are the same core courses previously listed for Associates in Ministry. They are listed below. Synods that prepare persons for Synodically Authorized or Licensed Ministries have established their own guidelines and requirements so it is important to discuss the use of Select Learning courses with the director of your synod's program.  The Select Learning office seeks to work with bishops and the synodical programs in establishing the learning program that meets the synods' guidelines and requirements.
