 Announcing the 2024-2025

Connectional Clinical Pastoral Education (CCPE) Program

Connectional Clinical Pastoral Education Program, an educational experience for ministers and laypersons of all denominations to enhance their professional pastoral skills and personal development but are unable to be in a traditional CPE program due to time or other restrictions. It also enables probationary ministers in the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church (CME) to meet the requirement of one unit of CPE for full connection clergy membership. This unique program brings ministers from across the country together and in small groups for interactive, reflective learning using their own community and place of ministry as the context.

The focus of this CPE program is on ministry in the congregation. Participants must have an approved place of ministry in order to complete the required hours in ministry each month of the program. The recommendation of a presiding bishop or supervising pastor is required as well. In addition to the ministry hours, attendance at all sessions is required.

There will be written assignments, readings and some internet-based assignments. The program operates under the auspices of the Academy for Public Theology through the Office of the CME Endorser. The faculty is comprised of certified CPE Supervisors and certified professional chaplains.

TUITION is $550, which includes $50 non-refundable application fee, a $150 deposit once accepted into the program and a balance of $350 payable before the program begins. The tuition includes the required books. There is currently no scholarship program, however a payment plan can be arranged.

May 31st, 2024 - Presiding Bishop of the 11th Episcopal District, Bishop K. Lawson Adjei had a Communion Worship Service at Grace Family CME Church in Nairobi. The service was attended by Pastors of the connection who were just arriving, Women's Missionary Society members, Youths and Young Adult (YAC) and Lay Council members. The preacher for the Service was a YAC preacher, Rev Moses Kamau from Central District of the Church in Kenya. He urged the delegates from 1Cor. 11:23ff to see the Communion as the blood with new testament relevance for salvation. Prior to the Service, Bishop had a caucus meeting with the 6 Presiding Elders of Kenya Region Annual Conference. Women's Missionary Council Leadership also concurrently had their service whilst the Bishop was meeting with the Elders.1st Lady Mercy was their guest speaker. Bishop addressed the Missionary Society members by affirming their ongoing Women's empowerment programme. Bishop pledged to support the fund with $500.00.1st Mercy and Bishop were presented with gifts portraying that they are warriors of the church in Kenya. Indeed, the service has set the tone for successful annual conference which opens tomorrow 1st June, 2024. To God alone be the glory. Photos and caption by Bishop K. Lawson Adjei.

GET CONNECTED CAMPAIGN

Greetings, Brothers, and Sisters in Christ, 

Some 10 million rural African Americans lack broadband internet, primarily in the South. They cannot use such essential services as online doctor visits, church services, school assignments, family connections, and voter registration. Thankfully, the Federal Communications Commission launched the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), providing nearly 18 million low-income households nationwide with resources to pay for necessary broadband service. The ACP offers eligible families a $30 monthly discount on high-speed internet services, making access free for many participants.

 

Here's what you can do:

1 - Forward to pastors in your network serving rural communities the "Get Connect" Information card below with a contact number and website for guidance through signing up for the ACP program. 

To Apply Call 1 (877) 384-2575 or Visit www.GetInternet.gov/apply.

2. Encourage them to visit - https://www.skinnerleaders.org/getconnected to download the "Get Connected Toolkit."
