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, "Cultivating Wholeness: An Examination of Healthy Living for the Church and Pastoral Leaders," "Christian Scripture: Bringing Out of the Storeroom Treasures New and Old," "Church in Mission," and many more.

Seminars are offered in weeklong 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.

Upcoming Seminars:

  • May 22-26, 2017: Christian Formation (Primary instructor: Dr. Rebecca Laird) Register Now!
  • July 31-August 4, 2017: Preaching/Teaching the Scripture (Primary instructor: Dr. Robert Smith)

Seminar by the Sea is a continuing education program for pastors and church leaders in which participants are invited to "sit in" on Master of Ministry seminars on a "not for credit" basis.
