Church Next

About ChurchNext

Our mission is to provide affordable Christian education for people everywhere that changes lives and improves the world. We do this by producing and distributing affordable, practical, and high-quality online learning experiences for members of faith communities as well as individuals who are unaffiliated with any church. We’re a group of clergy and educators who are excited about the possibilities online learning holds for the Church. We would love to meet you so contact us at hello@churchnext.tv or at 888-963-9328.

What is Online Christian Learning?

ChurchNext is an online learning tool designed for those who want to grow in their knowledge of Christ. It’s a fun and easy way for people to learn on their own or together in a self-paced environment that’s practical and affordable. Each course takes about 45 minutes to work through and is taught by an expert who has written and/or studied extensively on the subject. We begin each course with an invitation to community, journey through the material using videos, bible studies, discussion forums, and quizzes, then suggest ways students can continue their learning adventure. Given today’s hectic schedules and the thirst for a deeper knowledge of the Christian faith, online Christian learning is an outstanding way to grow in Christ.

EDEO will share the cost with you.

Just have your rector sign up the congregation as a school, send us a list of folks who took the first class, and we’ll pick up half the cost.

More information available on the Church Next website.

Education for Ministry

Often abbreviated EFM, Education for Ministry is a basic theological education, including the old and New Testaments, church history, liturgy, and theology. The full course stretches over four years. At least one church in the diocese, Redeemer in Pendleton, has an ongoing EFM program. Diocesan EFM coordinator is the Rev. Dcn. Gaye Lawson (glawson@bendcable.com), Trinity, Bend.

Small groups of participants and a trained mentor meet weekly during the nine-month academic year. Students who complete the program successfully receive a certificate and 18 continuing education credits for each of the four completed years. Students sign up for the program, which is run by the School of Theology at the University of the South (Sewanee) one year at a time.
Students sign up for this program one year at a time; the program is run by the School of Theology of the University of the South.
