We are pleased to provide pastors and lay leaders with a continuing education opportunity. Seminars by the Sea offer pastors a chance to escape to PLNU for several days of knowledge and skill development.

The goal of the seminars is to provide a cost-effective way for pastors to obtain practical information and ongoing education.  For this reason, the seminars focus on a broad spectrum of topics including, "The Life of the Minister," "Communicating the Gospel," "The Old Testament in the Christian Pulpit," and many more.

 Seminars are offered in weeklong intensives (four to five day intensives) and are facilitated by PLNU professors as well as a variety of guest speakers and lecturers. It is our goal that these seminars provide the opportunity for pastors to meet, network, and relate to one another.

If you are interested in receiving continuing education units for these seminars (either as official units from PLNU or through Nazarene Clergy Development), please provide this information at the time of your registration.
