UCC Institutes

Welcome to the UCC Institutes!

The Central Atlantic Conference Ministry Team and the Potomac Association UCC Committee on Church and Ministry sponsor this sequence of four institutes in the History, Governance, Theology and Ministry of the United Church of Christ. These courses follow the guidelines prepared by History, Theology and Polity teachers on the essentials of a basic one semester course.  For information on the content of the guidelines, click here.

The Saturday Institute format is designed to serve the needs of persons who cannot enroll in a regular semester-length seminary course to cover this material. Completion of all four sessions is equivalent to a “traditional” or online course in UCC History/Polity requirement.

Attending any Institute is always free.  However, there is an Evaluation Fee of $75 for persons seeking to fulfill the UCC History/Polity requirement for ministerial standing in the United Church of Christ.
