Our Mission: Developing Christian Leaders through Lifelong Learning


Clergy Leadership Conference 2015

   The 2015 Mississippi Course of Study is now available. You may download a copy at Course of Study page.   Please note that the course numbers have changed! Periodically the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry revises the curriculum of the Course of Study. These new course numbers and in some cases course names reflect those changes. You will not lose credit for courses you have already taken. In some instances the order of courses has also changed. For example,
Brad Berglund had been a part of the CFM Shepherd's Sabbath since the program's inception as our Pilgrimage leader. In this video he discusses what Pilgrimage is and how we can incorporate it into our lives.
